Sky’s the Limit ! (Taken with instagram)
This picture was taken on Friday, March 9, 2012. I was in the midst of an adjustment period between cloud affects. One area patch was full of gray bunched up clouds, and other unique ares were open spaces.
Pure white clouds separating, with the bluest of all blue skies behind it. Such a beautiful sight to see.
And honestly, we can compare this to life. Although you may be focused on something, there always seems to be a patch of gray clouds trying to clutter your vision of the sun. It’s all an adjustment period. Realize things happen to challenge you: Adversity.
Recognize a bump, but do not let it morph into a huge mountain of dwelling troubles which consumes your life overshadowing all of your efforts to focus on your goal. Whatever that may be.
I have been out of college; post grad (hence the title of this blog lol) for almost two full years now. And I, like most 20-somethings with a degree, found it a little rough to dive directly into my desired field of work. I worked as a bank teller for half the year following my graduation, soon after I moved into my own apartment and worked as an HR assistant for about a year.
Now, I’ve just been promoted to a different department as marketing associate!… The clouds were gray at one point, but as I continued to stay focused, driven, visualizing, and determined I had more and more faith and belief with in my heart. I still DO!.. Once you’ve got one foot in the door, make sure you continue to stay focused. Push yourself!
Surround yourself with nothing but positive people, and positivity in general. My best friends want the same for themselves. I am so appreciative of the fact that I have them in my life, because we all are young and can honestly say we are starting off in the beginning of great journeys!
Congrats to my best friends, and all of you young professionals out there that are really taking advantage of these opportunities, and focusing on future goals… It only goes up from here!
Give back, and be thankful- Grateful.. Always Mindful
