According to the results of my Myers-Briggs test, I should hate my job. As an INFJ, my personality profile indicates that I’ll be happiest and most successful in a career path outside of corporate America. For INFJ’s it’s important that we find meaning in our work and know that we’re helping and connecting with people. It’s also important that we get to be creative in our jobs. Some career paths that I might enjoy include most healthcare careers as well as jobs like counselor, psychologist, l...
And knowing that fact is the key to developing meaningful relationships.
When I think about what it really feels like to be in love, I can’t help but think back to that first time I met my college boyfriend. I never believed in love at first site-until I met him.
When my soft brown eyes met his green ones, there was an instant spark and fizzle of fireworks. I felt my stomach drop out from under me. There was an instant realignment of my center of gravity and part of me just knew that he would...
I’m tired and I’m feeling stupid and useless and all I want to do is curl under the covers and sleep for eternity. The more that I think about it, the nicer it sounds.
I find myself suddenly envious of the birds and the squirrels and the bears who get to borrow underground and rest for the winter. They may not have electricity or the internet, but who really needs luxury SUVs or six hundred dollar IPhones?
They get to sleep.
I can’t tell you the last time I slept peacefully, undi...
You’re just trying to be the best writer that you can be and because of that, you do crazy things like stay up until two in the morning reading news articles, spend six hours taking an online certification course, follow a bunch of writers on Twitter and Facebook so you can love all their work, and just generally spend as much time writing as possible.
You also probably carry a notebook with you or have an overflowing folder on your hard drive full of drafts. And if you’re like the worst of u...
It was only seven-thirty and I was exhausted. Lying on the couch, muscles sore and aching, I could barely keep my eyes open. I felt my eyelids fluttering shut, my head nodding off against the arm of the chair. I snuggled deeper beneath the blanket and gave myself permission to rest.
There were a hundred different things vying for my attention. My dog wanted to play and my mother chattered to me happily across the room like she couldn’t see me drifting away.
There were blog posts to be written...
I remember being a young child and feeling impatient to grow up. From my tiny little vantage point, I looked up at all the adults around me and thought that their lives looked so wonderful.
I was jealous of their fancy clothes and their colorful drinks that looked so delicious and the shiny new cars they parked in the driveway.
I longed to be in control of what I ate and what I watched and when I went to bed and I wanted my own credit card and money to buy all the things I wanted.
Of course, ...
I’ve been profoundly unhappy in many ways lately. What about you? When you look out your window what do you see? For me, I see a world that I’m not happy to be a part of. It’s cold, gray, and cruel. It’s a world where money is the only thing that matters, and life, the millions of those who suffer every day, and the world that we have plundered doesn’t.
I feel empty a lot of days.
I feel like I can’t muster up the strength or the will to play my part in this game anymore. I’ve been so profoun...
I’ve always loved being a writer. Writing was how I learned how to express myself, how I learned to share my ideas, and how I first learned that I could change the world with words.
Writing is everything to me and for the first time in my life, I’m seeing it as a viable career path.
When I first started sharing my work online, I was delighted to discover a whole other side of writing that I never knew existed.
The writing community.
Truthfully, writers are just an all-round amazing group of p...
