So the main reason why I decided to make a post about this is because I think insecurities and having insecurities is something everyone struggles with. I’m know that I definitely struggle with it from time to time.
I guess I really want to know is if insecurities can be conquered. I honestly think that they can if you have a good support system and have help in realizing that you are just fine how you are. Sometimes having a mantra you say can really help or even just looking around you all that’s going on. Sometimes realizing how blessed you are can really help you.
Now I’m not saying to disregard your insecurities. I’m just saying to try not to let it take over your thoughts because I’ve been there and it’s not a fun place to be.
I know that you can turn you insecurities into your strengths. But it can definitely take some time and it’s definitely not easy.
I know that I at times can be insecure about my skin tone because I was made fun of how dark I was when I was younger. But actually looking around and seeing how beautiful so many dark skinned people are. Also realizing that a lot of people want to be tan made me happy that my skin is naturally that way.
So you can definitely conquer it but it definitely takes a good support system and a lot of hard work. But I know that everyone of us can do that. I also do hope that this came across in a good way. It’s just something that I thought up after some recent events regarding myself.
But comment down below and let me know what you think and like always be sure to follow this blog and my YouTube channel which is: Shay Taree!
Just like I said last week I’ve decided to do life updates each week since my life can be so interesting haha. But this week even though it’s been fun it has been kind of stressful.
This week started off kind of on a bad foot. I woke up in a complete panic and I’m not sure if it’s because my alarm startled me or the weighted blanket that I bought. Also that weighted blanket is actually pretty cool so I recommend it if you have trouble getting to sleep. But anyway, I also ended up just being in not so great a mood that entire day. I was just really sad and couldn’t shake off that feeling.
Then once Tuesday came I felt kind of worse since I found out that I didn’t get the job that I actually really really wanted. So of course I started to cry and just thought that I was pretty much not good enough. Also I was so frustrated since it seems like I’ve been looking for a job forever and nothing has happened yet. It just causes my anxiety to skyrocket and my depression to hit really hard. Makes me very thankful for my family and friends who really helped me during that time and helped me to see that it’s just not my time yet but it’s coming.
After I heard that and read a lot of those nice comments from people it put me back in to job search mode. I really started looking for jobs like crazy but was still kind of sad. From there though the week got a bit better since I got to hang out with friends and my boyfriend. That kept my mind off a lot of stuff and also gave me some time to think.
What I thought about was what I really want to do with my YouTube channel and blog. There is just so much that I want to do but I don’t know where to start. But I also realized that I love the ideas and suggestions that y’all give me for videos. I want to continue to get better at both YouTube and blogging and I know that one day this will be my full time job.
But that’s pretty much my life update. This week was filled with a lot of struggles and while I’m not completely through it it’s gotten easier. Let me know if y’all like these updates because I plan to get through them and talk about my experience with this job search and also the toll it has taken on my mental health.
So I hope y’all enjoyed this and tomorrow there will definitely be a new video and I hope y’all enjoy it. Plus feel free to recommend anything y’all would like to see on my channel or my blog. Have a great day and stay nerdy!
As many of you know last week I talked about positive affirmations and how wonderful they can be. So this week I decided to list some of my favorite affirmations and I hope that these can help others. I actually found this on Pinterest which I find a lot of positive affirmations so I definitely recommend looking there so enjoy!
I hope you enjoyed reading those positive affirmation and I hope they helped you if you have been feeling down today. Also comment down below on if you have a favorite affirmation or saying!
Hey everyone! So I wasn’t able to record a video yesterday for Motivational Monday but instead I’m doing a blog post.
As many of you know I’ve gone through some tough times recently and one of the things I’ve started doing is writing down the things that I’m grateful for. I’ve also started copying down positive affirmations that I can read throughout the day and they lift my spirits.
The reason why I do this is because I’ve noticed that positive affirmations tend to put me in a good mood. Also many times they help me to restore my faith and know that things are going to be okay.
Positive affirmations are there to pretty much help you to be positive and put you in a positive mindset.
Do you use positive affirmations? Do you like reading them? Do they help you? Comment and let me know.
I know that usually on Monday’s I do a motivational video but due to catching a cold I decided to instead do a motivational blog post. For this blog post I also decided to be a little more open than I usually am. This is mostly due to the thoughts and feelings that I’ve had floating through my mind for the past few months.
About almost 6 months ago I lost my job with the reason being that my boss felt that I was not right for my job after me being there for almost 6 months. Needless to say I wasn’t shocked but it was definitely something that once it happened I didn’t know what to do. This was the first time since graduating from college that I didn’t have a job and I didn’t know where to turn to next. So I did the only thing that I could do and that was going to Disneyland on a trip that was already planned and then I would figure out what was next once I got back.
Well once I got back and my friends went back to work it was then that I was hit with the realization that I was now without a job except for a seasonal position that I got right before being let go from my full time job. But regardless it was time to hit the ground running with pulling out my resume and start sending it out to any and all companies that I thought I would be a good fit. Let’s just say that I ended up not really hearing back from any of the companies and my inbox was filled with the endless amounts of rejection emails.
Was I discouraged well not quite yet because I knew that finding another job wasn’t going to be easy. Especially because this time I wanted to find a job that was outside of the customer service realm that I had been in for the past 4 years. I wanted to do something in public relations, marketing, or communications. You know something I could really use my degree for. But most jobs even entry level ones wanted more experience than I definitely had.
Knowing this didn’t help my confidence either and I would spend several days crying or being frustrated. Mostly feeling like I wasn’t living up to my best life or that I was disappointing my parents. Not only that but I also felt that no matter what job I got it wouldn’t be right for me. Knowing that was the reason why I lost my job made me realize that I can’t fix that. If I was told I was late all the time, never there, or didn’t have a good work ethic then I could understand and I can fix that. But telling me a job doesn’t fit the person I am…. well I can’t fix that. The worst part is being told that by someone else and not coming to that conclusion on your own.
So now that’s something that I take with me every time I apply to a new job and it’s a fear I have. But I’m working on not letting the fear continue to have a hold on me and I’m so grateful for everyone that has supported me. Including all of you that read this blog and watch my videos.
But why I mostly wrote this post is to show that none of us are perfect and it’s okay to have times where you feel weak. It’s also okay to ask for help and to let people know of the fears that you have. Don’t let anyone tell you differently.
I’m using this down time I have to perfect my craft of blogging and YouTube and who knows where it may go. So let me know what you thought of this post and if y’all would like a video on this or something similar. Also feel free to comment down below your thoughts, feelings, and stories as well. I would love to read them and honestly any and all encouragement is welcome. Thanks again so much!
