5 Signs You’re Headed In The Right Direction In Life
Life is all about navigating through and making sure you’re making the right decisions that are beneficial to your future. It is, however relatively easy to feel lost in life. I say feel because in the times that we say we’re lost in life we never really are. Feeling off track is often caused by thoughts plagued with fear. Our journey in life is determined by two things, how well we handle it and how concerned we are that we possess the necessities required to ensure our journey is a positive, healthy one.

Giving Up Isn’t An Option
In my mind I am a world-renowned author with a couple of best sellers under my belt. I have never quite viewed myself as average. I have always known that my destination here on earth is far more than I could ever fathom. It is imperative that while we are on our road to greater things that we never lose sight of why we began in the first place. Think back on when you first started whatever it is that you’re pursuing. You were inspired, you never felt defeated, and you were thriving and striving doing whatever it was that you needed to do in order to keep moving forward. But, like any journey, we are met with many obstacles and trials along the way. Our trials become burdens and our burdens later become our excuses for choosing to no longer follow through with our visions.

What I’ve Learned As A Black Woman Reaching For Success
I was talking over the phone to a colleague turned friend the other day about all of the things I wish to achieve in the next few years. She and I met several years ago and bonded over our aspirations to be successful journalist. While my dreams somewhat shifted, my friends pretty much stayed the same. It wasn’t long before she was packed up and headed to the big apple to work her dream job. I couldn’t help but be slightly envious that she had fulfilled her goals, but nonetheless I was elated to hear about her journey. I explained to her the highs and lows of being an author and a blogger. I was unprepared of what she was going to say next. “Amber, it must be hard being a black woman with visions as big as yours.” I smiled because I felt like my friend understood that my struggle was more about how I looked and less about the talent or skills I possessed. Excelling in the world of writing and landing your dream job as a black woman is a difficult task. There have been highs and lows along the way, but I’ve learned a lot. What have I learned as a black woman reaching for success? I thought you’d never ask.
