What is your biggest regret?
- I have a few. I’ll be honest in saying the list is LONG and can’t decide which is worse at this point in my life. We all have made some mistakes in the past (even if you live with the saying, no regrets); you have made mistakes you aren’t proud of. I was young once — some would argue to say I am still young at 26 but I was naive and adventurous and wanted to live in my own world and listen to my own rules — maybe it was the wild side showing after so long of feeling as though I was sheltered from the “fun”. I don’t really want to go into all the regrets I have because some are kind of dark and more private than others, but I will mention that one of my regrets is applying for so many credit cards — I mean I had like 6 and probably only needed one & I allowed the credit limits and my credit score get the best of me and made bad financial decisions that I am paying for now STILL! which is sad, because I didn’t see myself in credit card debit as my future, but it happened and now I have learned from this mistake.
Do you have any regrets you want to share?
If you could go back to when you were a child, what would you say to yourself?
- I would tell myself “to be yourself 100%, no matter what others may think. Never feel the need to change who you are in order to make others like you”. I would tell myself this then, in hopes that when I proceed through life, I never felt the need to always change who I was to fit in, or to be liked or worthy of someone else. It would probably have made my life a little bit easier. #lifelesson
What would you tell your childhood self?
Do you deal well with rejection?
- Now, sure, I deal with it better; but I still have my moments when it is hard to deal with it. Rejection is hard to deal with, not something most people enjoy; including myself. Learning to be okay after being rejected can be hard at first, but teaching yourself that it doesn’t mean you aren’t good enough helps one to realize rejection isn’t always a bad thing. Sometimes rejection leads to one door opening after another has closed.

How do you deal with obstacles that get in your way?
Sometimes I have to ask myself this same question because there have been times this has happened and somehow I still manage to overcome the obstacles, I have always been told ” face them head on & if something is important enough to you, than no obstacle is too hard to overcome”. Many times I find myself learning to handle each obstacle a little differently than the last, but both I’ve decided that after I have complained and suffered through the anger & possible sadness, that’s time to find a solution– Many times the challenge is worth the reward & some of my obstacles have been longer than others; in which it becomes a daily agenda to get through another day w/out giving up. How I’ve learned to handle the obstacles that have gotten in my way is to think with a calm mind and make it a step by step process. Going head on can sometimes sink your ship, so better to have a strategy and to keep a calm disposition if possible in order to think rationally about how to overcome the obstacle.
