The never ending battle with soggy lettuce ..

It always sucks to be the new guy – in any career field or job. It was especially hard for me because I’m so impatient by nature. I remember being mad that I wasn’t old enough to enter my field. And when I finally did, I was always in awe of my mentors stories, resumes, and accomplishments. 

Even people I knew who didn’t have formal educations had so much work experience, and life experience for that matter! That had real world expertise doing all the things I couldn’t wait to do – things that I dreamt of having the opportunity to do. 

Recently I was gathering some paperwork for some possible new ventures and had to gather my resume and transcripts. And I have to say it was a little ego boost. Not because I wanted to run through the streets bragging about anything but because I sat there and looked at classes I had taken, awards I had received, and it all led to different professional milestones in my life. 

After looking over everything I was very proud of myself for chasing my dream. I was the architect of my life. But not everything was perfect. I found “F’s” in some classes and old applications for jobs I didn’t get. But it made me smile to know that I tried and didn’t have to wonder what might have been. 

Don’t ever hesitate to chase your dreams. Go after what you want – because you want it. Don’t follow a path that someone else wants you to or deny yourself your dream because someone else thinks it won’t be good for you. You need to be the architect of your life, chase your dreams, and be able to look back and smile at all that you achieve.

Does anyone like that type of person who complains, bitches, and find every negative point about everything they can? I personally cannot stand that. And I’ve found myself sucked in to the dark hole of negativity before. 

Every has complaints and wishes something was different, that’s human nature. And it actually a good thing to see how things can be improved. 

But don’t just sit there and complian and bash whatever idea or plan that’s thrown out there. Come up with something better. Wow the crowd. Quit being negative and work towards changing something if it bothers you that much. 

Stop the toxic victim mentality and look at your resources. Now take some action and at least work on bettering your own little bubble. But if your ideas are so magnificent then share then and enact them. 

The world moves forward on improvements. It gets stagnant with complaining and negativity. 

If you aren’t part of the solution, you are part of the problem.
