The Value of Being Fully Invested in Yourself

Five Reasons You Should Always Invest in Yourself First.

The Value of Being Fully Invested in Yourself

Life is a tumultuous journey from start to finish. No matter where you are in your journey, you most likely feel rushed to some extent and like you are constantly busy. This often leads people to simply try to get what needs to be done finished as quickly as possible and then going off to relax in some, hopefully unique way. However one thing that is lost through this rushed lifestyle is the ability or the want to focus on yourself. Now that might sound terribly selfish and vain, but in reality, taking time to focus on yourself, to invest in yourself in various ways is all we have. Its the only road we have between the person seen now in the mirror, and your best self, that you have seen inside of yourself since you were a child. You are essentially giving yourself room to grow, and develop, as you very well should.
Now there are different ways to invest in yourself, you can learn new skills, develop better relationships. or maybe develop yourself professionally. There are endless things that you can do in order to improve yourself, and it is always just that one little step a day that makes the difference in the end between you now, and your best self.
So here are a few reasons why developing yourself is so very important.

1. If you never spend time on yourself, developing your skills and talents, they will never produce results and it will be like you threw that talent away.

2. If you don't spend time on yourself as a person, professionally and otherwise, you will never be able to use the person you could have been to help others.

3.If you don't spend that time with yourself, developing, you might never figure out who you really are.

4. If you aren't spending time growing yourself, you are probably leading a fairly stagnant life, that will lead to unhappiness.

5. finally, if you leave all of your development to chance, you could miss out on all development entirely. That could cause you to miss out on serious oppourtunities you could have gotten, maybe even missing out on what some would call your destiny.

No matter how you look at it however, not investing in yourself is in reality, more costly than not investing.

So go out there and make yourself the best investment you have ever made!

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
