I like Simon Sinek. I admire that he speaks the truth and calls things out in a compassionate way. However, I’m not content with the way he’s addressed the problem of Millennials feeling unfulfilled. I’m talking about that interview he did with Inside Quest about Millennials in the Workplace that's circling around social media. In the… Continue reading Dear Simon, This Is WHY Millennials Are Unfulfilled, By A Millennial.
It’s quite often that when we meet someone new that we choose to see what we want them to be rather than what they present us with.

To me, it's like a constant questioning of my intention. A questioning that gets increasingly harder to answer as I delve into the various layers… Continue reading Let’s talk about integrity

It’s as though we lost some kind of conscious filter that used to be delicately balanced in our throats. A filter that would create a necessary lodge if we were about to… Continue reading When Not To Judge Someone’s Character
