This quote has helped me many times when I have felt that people have judged me due to my appearance, circumstance or any other unknown reason. At the time I would feel hurt but after reading this quote, I find myself re-evaluating the situation and thinking to myself: why am I so concerned about how this person is treating me. Instead, why don't I just stop worrying about them and focus on how I want to treat others.

The quote reminds me that if I want to see change, I should start with myself. How will I treat others and interact with them. If I treat others well that is a good and positive action. 

I hope this short message inspires you today! 

Now it's your turn: What quote has made you re-evaluate yourself instead of judging others?

  1. "What other people think of you is none of your business." On the one hand, this is a bit daft - there are plenty of contexts - many work-related - where other people's opinion of you cannot be ignored. But the underlying principle is good: in general, what other people are thinking about you represent their own private thoughts, hidden away within their head. And that really is none of your business and is not worth worrying about. It only matters if it affects their behaviour in a way that impacts on you - but even then, often we make assumptions about other people's behaviour, based on our own paranoias, which turn out to be wrong.

    1. Yes, I like that one too! You're right there are certain situations in which a person's opinion do count, especially if it is criticism that will develop you and improve your skills/performance.
      In another blog post I plan to write about handling criticism.
      Thank you for your comment.

Hello 2019

I've taken some time out to think about the direction I want this blog to go in 2019. 

The most important thing for me is that my values are clear from the start. Going forward, I want to set the tone for my content and audience.
So let's start here: 
Things I've said Goodbye to in 2018:Hiding my Christian faith: I'm known for being all about productivity, personal development and a female engineer. As a woman of God, I am all those things and more.Fake friendships: being in a new city all I wanted to do was make new friends but as time went by I realised that some of these friendships do not align with my values and do not draw me closer to God. Wanting to control everything in my life - I need to trust God more, trust the process and walk in faith. 
2 Corinthians 5:7 (NKJV) For we walk by faith, not by sight.
What I'm saying HELLO to in 2019:
Serving my church and being of service in my community Focusing on what God is leading me to do: Things that align with God'…

How to Create an Empowering Vision Board

What is a vision boardA vision board is a visual representation of your hopes, dreams, and goals. It is a collection of pictures and words put on a board (or paper). Creating a vision board allows you to see daily, all the things you want to do, have and be.

I can show you better than I can tell you, here are some of my vision boards. These represent different areas of my life and I plan to keep them for a while. This weekend I plan to create my 2018 vision board. Keep reading and I will explain the different types.

5 Ways to Build Intentional Friendships

We’ve all heard the saying: you are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with. So it’s absolutely important to have the right type of people around you, this is your inner circle (your circle of influence).

It’s been proven that we can only have a deep connection with just 5 people at any one time. So if you look at the closest 5 people in your life right now they’re the ones you connect with and are influenced by on a daily basis. The other tens or even hundreds of people you know or call ‘friends’ are actually friendly acquaintances. You can have up to 150 of these people in your life but you can’t have true friendship or influence with so many people at once.  

The biggest lesson I’m learning in my twenties is the importance of having and finding true friends. I’ve had to learn this lesson the hard way by getting hurt, bouncing back and knowing my values so that I can go out there and make better friendships.   
1. Choose your Friends
