Too many young women I think are harder on themselves than circumstances warrant. They are too often selling themselves short. They too often take criticism personally instead of seriously. You should take criticism seriously because you might learn something, but you can’t let it crush you. You have to be resilient enough to keep moving forward, whatever the personal setbacks and even insults that come your way might be. That takes a sense of humor about yourself and others. Believe me, this is hard-won advice I’m putting forth. It’s not like you wake up and understand this. It’s a process.
Tomorrow my friend I’ve known the longest gets married. So far, I’ve made 120 mini cheesecakes for this shindig, and they’ve turned out well so far,
After this, it’s a week of helping open a new store in Cabazon. Which is great for my career, if I want to continue where I currently work. It makes me look like I’m playing the game, which is good since they’re trying to out one of us.
I had planned on doing meal planning this week to help myself get back on track. Since that won’t work, I think I will see if the hotel has a gym that I can use to work out. Especially since I don’t love my roommate. Also, I think I may need a pair of proper pajamas, if I’m going to be around a stranger. Hmmm… things to think about.
I think I’m going to apply for a similar position to the one I applied for last week. Can’t hurt, right? And if it gets me closer to my chosen field, it’s probably for the best! But beyond that, I think I need to do more digging for another job, just in case.
Women are considered fragile but I’ve never seen anything as easily wounded as a man’s ego
