How To Stay the Course When Your Job Was a Casualty of Coronavirus

April 11, 2020 in Career, Wellness - No Comments

Last Thursday, I became one of the 17 million people who filed for unemployment due to coronavirus. Working for a medium-sized start-up in San Francisco, I had a small inkling in the back of my mind that my job could possibly be affected. I followed the news like a hawk (both my boyfriend and my dad are healthcare providers so that was something else to worry about). I knew people were experiencing reduced…

March 30, 2020 in Freebies - No Comments

It’s definitely been an unconventional start to spring with the upheaval of COVID-19. However, I have taken advantage of the “shelter in place” order to reconnect with things that matter most to me — writing and design. Because of all the COVID-19 chaos, I want to create and share something beautiful to help keep peoples’ spirits up. What’s Your Spring Awakening Mantra? The theme for these wallpapers is “Spring Awakening.” Despite what’s happening…

4 Intentions To Transform Your Year—and Life

February 29, 2020 in Lifestyle, Wellness - 13 Comments

And just as quickly as the New Year arrived, it’s now March. New Year’s resolutions are either in the back of your minds, going strong or broken (and that’s okay). While I don’t believe in waiting for the perfect time and place to begin fill in the blank here, I commend anyone who is brave enough to take those first steps, (yes, baby-steps count too), toward achieving their goals. For me, New Year’s…

How to Awaken Your Authentic Self

As another year comes to a close, many people will be embracing the “New Year, New Me” concept. This year, I challenge you to awaken your authentic self instead. Locked away, deep inside is your most authentic being who is waiting to come out. They might be weighed down by social media happy reels, unrealistic beauty standards or other people’s expectations of how you should live your life. If you find yourself questioning…

  • Here’s the thing: “Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will.” In our darkest moments, we may seek support, advice, and validation from others to help overcome our own self-doubt. But there will be times where there will be no one you can turn to, rely on, or count on except for YOURSELF.

And as difficult as that may be, there’s real power in betting on yourself.

  • 🍷Wine country: Livermore 🍷
#ThrowbackThursday: Sometimes a staycation is what you need. Since I wasn’t home for New Years, my bf planned a mini weekend getaway for us the following week.

An hour outside of SF, we found ourselves at @thepurpleorchid . It was quiet, private, romantic, and the hospitality was top-notch. You are treated like family here 💕
On top of that, they sell THE BEST DAMN OLIVE OIL I’ve had!

We spent the weekend exploring the wineries and Downtown Livermore.
We can’t wait to be back once everything is back to normal 🍷

  • 💐Bloom where you’re planted💐
The upside to shelter-in and being jobless is taking time to enjoy the little things that exist in our own backyard.
And in my backyard, I found these beautiful tendrils of flowers blooming despite all the shit that’s happening in the world.
Even though I lost my job, I’m slowly learning to bloom where I’m planted, to make the best out the situation, and to find beauty in the everyday. Because clearly it’s possible. ⠀⠀
With that being said, I’ve got some exciting news to share. Stay tuned!
How do you find the strength to bloom where you’re planted? Let me know in the comments below 🌸

  • Okay, you’re passionate. And?

Don’t get me wrong. It’s good to be passionate. But passion only gets you so far.

I got the opportunity to share my story with @boldandbrilliantlife about how I made my career switch from localization into events/marketing in the tech industry and the question about “finding your passion” came up.

The truth is this: a prerequisite to finding your passion is understanding what you’re committed to doing.

At the end of the day, what you need to be able to answer is are you COMMITTED to putting in the hard work to fulfill your passion? If not, what’s passion without a purpose?

Read my full interview about what it takes to jump ship and follow your passions. Story in bio

So, what are you committed to? ✨
