As a recent college graduate (or not so recent anymore) this past May 2019, I’ve been asked pretty frequently how and what I did in college to prepare for the stage of my life I am in now. The four years fly by extremely fast and next thing you know, you are done with school (maybe even for good) and now you’re stressed about hitting the real world. Reality sucks, but there also so many opportunities to plan ahead and get ahead of the game while you’re still in school and I share all about my personal tips and what I did leading up to the point of graduation.

They say traveling is good for your mental health and for learning new experiences. Well, not only is that true, but sometimes, it can make you feel more gratitude for things that seem so basic in your everyday life. After reflecting on my incredible time in Stockholm, Amsterdam, and Hamburg, I internally realized that I feel more grateful for three specific aspects in my life.

I started listening to podcasts around Fall 2017 and I instantly recognized how valuable and efficient it was for me because it often felt like I was listening to mini audio books on very niche topics.

Up until the end of 2017, I blamed others for what happened to me. If I was late, it was because there was too much traffic, not because I didn’t leave early enough to account for that traffic. If I forgot something, it was because someone else didn’t remind me. If someone misunderstood me, it was because they weren’t smart enough to understand me, not because I didn’t clarify the confusion. But all of this…sounds so selfish, doesn’t it?
Nearly one year ago, my approach to life completely changed. In essence, I guess I can say I also changed…a lot. It was a simple decision to take full accountability for everything that happened in my life, even if it wasn’t “fully” my fault, because well…why would I want someone else to have control over my outcome? Did you ever consider that thought? Continue reading “Take Accountability for your Actions”
