Life is so damn short, for fucks sake, just do what makes you happy.
Compliment people. Magnify their strengths, not their weaknesses.
Not everyone is going to want, accept, or know how to receive your energy. Make peace with it and move on.
Kindness. It doesn’t cost a damn thing. Sprinkle that shit everywhere.
Slow down, calm down, don’t worry, don’t hurry. Trust the process.
Spend more time making yourself a better person and less time worrying about what everyone else is doing.
Find a way, not an excuse.
Religious freedom doesn’t mean you can force others to live by your own beliefs, and you do not have to endure this from others either.
We are not our failures.
You can’t live a positive life with a negative mind.
The more you close yourself the unhappier you’ll be. You’re not alone, open up to people.
People come and people go. That’s the way the world goes. Live and learn, don’t live and regret. The best is yet to come. Look forward.
When you lose yourself in what you love, you find yourself in what you are.
Forget everything you’ve been told and open your mind.
Forgiveness is the greatest indicator of strength. Admit when you’re wrong, but if someone makes you feel like shit for the mistake, move on. Similarly, when someone makes a mistake, be good enough to understand why they did. You don’t attack people because of a mistake. People learn."
The Universe has been moving in my life within the past 48 hours that I am still trying to process it all.
I talked with my mentor the day before yesterday, after I had told him that I finalized my housing situation for SXSW, we got to talking about my next goal which was to find a job. I told him about the two interviews that I had yesterday and we both expressed how awesome it would be if I could land one before I left for Austin. We both expressed how it would be a perfect world if I landed a job and didnt have to start work until after SXSW.
Well, all of that happened today. I mean I was so hungry and intent on finding a job that I was jittery because all I had in my system was a cup of coffee. My second interview was at five and I had not eaten.Why? I had forgotten and by the time I the tingling feeling in my fingers in both hands started to grab my attention (extremely low blood sugar) it didn’t have time. I ate after the interview.
The fact that I had direct access to Chipotle burritos was a plus ;)
Yea, ill be working at Chipotle and no it’s not the ideal job that I want but at the moment beggars can’t be choosers. I have rent and bill to pay and taking care of that is priority number one.
SXSW - is my gateway to that “ideal” career. It’s funny when I tell people that I will be volunteering, they look at me crazy and repeat back “volunteering”. Yea, i mean paid internship would of been nice but I understand in this industry you have to pay your dues, do your homework and all of that requires hard unpaid work at the beginning. However, life is about perspective; I can still look at this as an mini internship. See, I’m not focused on the not getting paid, I’m focused on the doors of opportunities that are awaiting to be knocked upon and opened. I’m focused on the connections that I will be establishing in hope to build. The skills and knowledge that I will be gaining and knowing that they will be watching me.
Volunteers get graded. So my performance, attendance, professionalism is critical to my success and my access into the industry.
So, I’m going to this festival with an mindset of: 80% hard work. 20% play.
The will notice me.
My time will come.
As of now though,
I need to rest.
