I have tried meditation; quieting my thoughts. It works sometimes and I have to admit it’s therapeutic.
As I matured, I learnt that I didn’t have to always cling onto every friendship. I learnt that some friendships are for a season and for a purpose and it’s okay if they don’t last.
I don’t have a squad and sometimes I used to wonder if that’s okay. If life and “the bold type” have taught me anything, it’s that quality over quantity when it comes to friendships.
“I would tell men and women in their mid-twenties not to settle for a job or a profession or even a career. Seek a calling. Even if you don’t know what that means, seek it. If you’re following your calling, the fatigue will be easier to bear, the disappointments will be fuel, and the highs will be like nothing you’ve ever felt.” Phil Knight
Up until I came across The Shoe Dog, Nike was just another shoe to me or rather a company with good advertising campaigns. After reading this inspiring book, Nike to me is now a person, a rich heritage. It’s resilient; it’s taking a chance on people.
A sense of well-being, joy or contentment. -Dictionary definition.

“T o affirm is to state that it is so, and as you maintain this attitude of mind as true, regardless of all evidence to the contrary, you will receive an answer to your prayer.” Joseph Murphy

“I“I t was a home marked by insecurity. She did not like insecurity. She said it again. Security.” The Shoe Dog.
Our relationship with money like any other relationship comes from what we saw growing up. If you grew up in an insecure environment you will fight for security. You will always want to ensure there is money in your account stacked safe with no risks.
If you grew up in a secure environment your mindset may be more of money will always come in. Spending money and taking risks may come easily for you.
