The main purpose of creating the blog is to show potential employers who I am. Not just another resume that has entered their database and not just another candidate who has an adjective filled letter of recommendation. A real sneak peek of me, my personality and my professional skills.
With that being said, this blog post will focus on my core values of a healthy mind, body and soul.
MIND: I do my best to keep an open mind to learn something new. Not just text book study materials about communications and campaign case analysis (PR Newswire) but study materials on leadership skills (The One Minute Manager) or personal freedom (The Four Agreements). It is important to me that I maintain a positive energy and thoughts! Besides, life is so much easier when you focus on the positive instead of the negative! I suppose you could say that I am a peace maker or a hippie at heart. Or, as Timon and Pumbaa from The Lion King say ,”Hakuna matata!” (A problem free philosophy!)
BODY: I do my best to eat healthy and exercise. I mostly eat fish, veggies and chocolate. I suppose I could be tagged as a pescetarian but I am not the type of person who follows that diet 100 percent. I will eat chicken every now and then but do not eat a lot of other land animals. This is actually interesting because I grew up on a ranch and totally understand the food chain. I became more interested in eating only fish and vegetables because of the harmful and inhuman ways slaughter house kill and treat the animals. I wouldn’t call myself a ‘runner’ because I have only participated in one 5K but I enjoy running to clear my mind and as a main source of cardio. I always run a mile before lifting weights and my goal is to run a mile in 10 minutes or less! I try to exercise at least four to five times a week! I always say, “20 minutes of exercise is ahead of any coach potato!”
SOUL: As much as I believe in staying healthy and such…. I believe it is good for the soul to indulge in chocolate! I am a proud member of Godiva chocolate company and I get one free piece of chocolate a month! Of course, I visit the boutique at least two to three times a month! I believe it is also good for the soul to go on vacation and always have a new outfit for your birthday and holidays. If one does not take a vacation, at least once a year, then they are working way too much. I am not talking about a vacation to another country (although that would be super) but a vacation to release work stress. A vacation to focus on the number one person… YOU! The new outfit thing is great because it makes you feel better about yourself and extra special!
I hope this provides more an insight as to who I am!
