A year ago today, I cried.
The teardrop on the iPhone screen, the inability to breathe, the heartbreaking feeling of Did I make the right life choice? … yeah that type of crying.
It led to this Facebook status — the genesis of what allowed me to become a professional, employed adult.
I felt guilty. Why did it take a Timehop app to remind me of that pivotal moment? I literally forgot about it. Today wasn’t a good day.
And neither was yesterday when a friend who I wouldn’t imagine not being a groomsman at my wedding called. I knew so little of his life, and he knew so little of mine. It hurt hearing he didn’t want to call out of the blue because he knew how hard I work.
In college — only a year ago mind you — my life was public domain. And honestly, I learned the fundamentals of social media by doing that. It’s a big reason why people value me now.
So, like I did on Aug. 3, 2013, here’s another decree of sorts.
I don’t know how to be a good friend and a professional. Since I’m blessed to be working at an agency that encourages its employes to have a healthy work-life balance, this blog will become a part of that balance.
Living by Mahatma Gandhi’s quote, “Be the change you want to see in the world,” means to never stop improving. Please allow me to re introduce myself, friends. It’s nice to see your faces again.
