This past year, I decluttered. Not my house per se but my life. This global pandemic helped me to slow down and reevaluate my priorities in life. It helped me to evaluate what I was giving all of my time, attention and energy to. This past year, I would go as far as saying I’ve adopted a minimalist mindset. And it has changed my life.
Our words can kill or our words can give life. They can humanize or dehumanize. They’re either poison or fruit—we get to choose. One of the things that burn me up is the failure to use person-first language when we refer to certain people, demographics, or specific lived experiences of others in our conversations.
Pain and Pressure
Not too long ago, I was telling a friend how much I had grown over the past 3 years and she wanted to know my secret. So I simply said, “pain and pressure.” I think most of us want to grow personally AND professionally but we wouldn’t dare ask for more pain and pressure to be added to our lives right?
