I have a bad habit of starting, stopping and starting back up again - especially when it comes to my passions. Feel the same way? Here’s some quick advice on making sure your dreams done wither away on your back burner.
In the fall of 2016, I took a leap. I was unhappy with my current job, I wanted more out of my leadership and I felt I needed to take my career trajectory into my own hands. I joined a leadership group at work and on one of our first days of training, we were instructed to write letters to our future selves, outlining our current fears and insecurities and capture our feelings and hopes for the year ahead. After our year was over, we had a chance to read them again and reflect on how different our lives had become. In this post, I’m sharing the letter I wrote for all of you who feel like you too need more.
Like the horoscopes you’d read in teen magazines, each person has a Life Path Number like an astrological sign, that shares a bit about your personality based on your birth day.

And knowing how many of our readers share similar interests in finding their passion, I’m hoping you might find this little piece as insightful as I did.
These days, it seems like everyone feels bad. People are upset or angry or anxious and we’re all just seeking ways to feel happy again. But, as we sit in these complex emotions trying to find a way out of them, many of us don’t take the time to acknowledge what we’re doing to perpetuate these feelings. In this post, we share two of the ways you’re totally torturing yourself.
