I am in a stage in life where people are asking me questions I honestly do not have the answer to what you want to do with the rest of your life. Apparently saying I want to marry rich and life off a yacht is not the appropriate answer. Some days I am sure you feel the same way. No one ever tells you that after you graduate that you can sometimes get into a cycle of go to work, come home and watch tv or go out with friends. I don’t mind being with my friends, but I am not ok with “cycles”. To me cycles are circles that we get into and like a true circle it can be hard to break out of without will power. And for the past couple of weeks I have been, unfortunately, I have been a part of that circle. Well, that stops today. For the next couple of weeks, I am breaking the cycle. Each week, I will do something that I would not typically do. I not saying I will climb Mount Everest in a week (maybe in a few). But I do not want to fall into the post graduate school cycle of just applying to jobs and being home. So I hope you stay along for the journey, like, subscribe, share below how you came out of a cycle and be sure to smile at life’s moments
Once again thank you Nia for nominating me for this challenge.
Today’s quote was brought to you by Joseph Lowery. He wrote “If you can take care of the internal, you can easily take care of the external. Then you can avoid the infernal and latch on to the eternal”.
For me this quote means that we must always make sure that you are sound on the inside. Meaning if ones mental state or even their internal health is weak, it is important to take care of that. Many people believe that if they are functional on the outside, then that means they can accomplish anything. However, our inner problems always have away of reflecting to our outside body. Our inner problems can sometimes make us physically weak or can prevent us from doing the things we need to do. Be sure to to always make sure your internal health and external health are aligned. When they are aligned you can continue to do great things.

First thank you Nia for nominating me for this challenge.
The quote that i chose for day one of the challenge is “It’s not the load that breaks you down. Its the way you carry it” by Lena Horne.
This quote to me means that no matter what challenges may come my way that it is how I handle them that will determine my strength. Each day, ironically today as well, i am faced with a new decision/problem that needs a definite response. Those new decisions/problems feel likes big loads especially when i am depressed. But i have come to realize that if i change the way i carry it either by tossing some of the load away or reorganizing things, the bundle is a bit easier to carry.
I hope you enjoyed this entry and i will post tomorrow.
