Stop Admiring the Green Grass Across the Street and Fertilize Your Own Lawn — www.demezw.com (a repost)

One thing I see a lot of is people in relationships admiring other relationships from a distance. “Wow, I wish he treated me like her man treats her.” I see women in relationships envying their single friend. “She gets to travel and do what she wants and date around. She’s got it good.” Meanwhile the […]

Orchestrated snaps.. (a repost)

You look from the outside in yearning for what they have But you don’t see the cracks papered over with tissue paper You don’t hear the lies they tell each other or the facts they fail to mention You just see the smiling faces in orchestrated snaps and insta stories Friendships based on common enemies […]

Monday Notes: 5 Suggestions Before Asking Someone to Follow Your Business on Social Media(a reblog) — K E Garland

A few months ago, a friend asked me to follow her on social media because she’s re-branding and doing new things. Of course, I obliged because she’s my friend, and you know that’s what some friends do in the 21st century…support to increase the person’s social media platform in the beginning stages. Following her, however, […]

Dr. G put together another great, necessary list! I would add that you should not post any or too many personal photos on your business page. It’s just weird and confusing.

week 52: the strong friend

This time of year, I spy many posts reminding people to check on their strong friend. I don’t really like this prompt for three reasons: 1. If we truly are friends, shouldn’t you be checking for me throughout the year, not just the holiday season? 2. Why do we have a strong friend? Even if […]

week 46

Energy is currency. When you ‘pay’ attention to something, you’re buying an experience. It’s an investment so spend carefully  and only on things that will bring you a good return. Be selective. Treat your time with as much care as your finances. It’s equally as valuable. -unknown ❤
