What we say VS what we think is often quite different. I am finding that keeping my thoughts in line with what I would present to other people really helps. It’s not okay to say one thing and then go home and vent to yourself for hours. Don’t think that has no influence over you.
After many discussions with various people and many observations throughout life, this is my interpretation of what is going on inside the mind of a sexist. Hopefully this will help men see how their thinking may be destructive and also help women understand where these hurtful beliefs may be coming from. Sexism needs to stop. Change has been long overdue.
I am not saying that this is 100% accurate, especially not for every single person who displays sexist behavior. However, it is my interpretation based on my observations, experience and perspective. You can like it or not. Your call.
Some days I wake up and just can’t focus, but that’s okay. You can’t feel inspired every day. However, you can try to start off your day in the best way possible, with excitement for what’s to come. Have confidence in yourself and a positive attitude. Today could be amazing or it could pass by without significance. Pay attention to how the day starts in your mind.
I’m extremely lucky to be a self employed person, but it’s hard to spend so much time alone. I have gotten into the habit of shying away from social situations and other people since I started working at home. Recently, however, I have been trying to spend more time with people, especially those who have similar goals and creativity. It has been one of the best things for my energy, inspiration, and productivity. I can’t believe I had forgotten the value of connecting with other people.
Don’t make the mistake I made and forget to surround yourself with good people. Hang around those who are a good influence on you and those who help you to become a better person. Laugh with them, dream with them, and create a better world with them
I’ve been learning a lot about myself when it comes to my ideas and my motivations. I often get burnt out and lose sight of my ideas or aspirations. Lately I have been trying to organize my life in a way that inspires me and keeps me active. I feel a lot better for it and definitely get a lot more done. I like to think about ideas like a flame. They can easily fizzle, but they can also grow larger than you could ever imagine. Don’t let your ideas burn out.
Lately I have been trying very hard to find balance in my life. That means not working too much, but also not playing to much or being too lazy. That means trying to be healthy, but not trying to hard. That means sleeping well, but not too much. That means being careful what I put into my body. Let me tell you, it has already made such a difference in my life. When I have a day of balance, it makes everything amazing and makes me feel amazing. I get so much more done and I don’t feel tired. I think so many of us pump our bodies full of caffeine, food, over-activity, and stress in hopes of feeling like a superhero. I can promise you this, these things will not make you feel like a superhero. What will make you feel like a superhero, however, is balance. Find balance in your life, understand yourself, and take care of yourself. It’s so important.
