Pep Talk Tuesday

Pep Talk Tuesday | Sense of Sunny

Ya’ll, this week is no joke. I contemplated way too many times the thought of avoiding this blog over the next few days, because if I’m being honest, real life me feels like a complete mess on the inside. My words are jumbly, my brain is frazzled, and my thoughts and actions don’t seem to be synchronizing very well. It’s so easy to yell say HECK NAH to everything when life gets a little off-kilter.

But, you know what feels a whole lot better? Saying HECK YEAH to the things that make you smile, the conversations that make you laugh, and the people who lift you up. So, that’s what I’m doing. I hope that no matter what’s happening in your life, that you join me in smiling, laughing, and lifting your self and others through the week. May these articles serve you in overcoming whatever battles you’re fighting this week, as they’ve lead me through mine.

“How to Get Over Imposter Syndrome” Have that.

“How to Follow Your Gut” Doing that.

“How to Finally Make a Decision” Yep, still working on that.

“Pushing Past Your Comfort Zone” Past it.

“How to Find Motivation” Finding it. Somewhere.

Never forget the boss lady (or man) you are. If you need a few reminders, subscribe to the Career Contessa newsletter here to receive a few more rays of sunshine to your day and inbox every week.

Because we all need a little pep talk every now and then.
