This week has been a mixed bag. We were able to find some great apartments thanks to AptAmigo
, and fingers crossed that one comes through for us. Shortly afterwards, we found out that my uncle lost his battle with his cancer. 😩
Going in to the work week with all of that swirling around was tough but I had an outpouring of support from friends, family and my coworkers so that helped a lot. Wednesday was my busiest day starting out the morning with my Side Hustle for the Soul workshop for the Uppercase Conference (check out the recording here
) and ending with the Tech Talent Showcase. I had to dig deep into my energy reserves this week but all in all, everything went well.
My uncle will be laid to rest this weekend and I find solace in the fact that he is no longer in pain and at peace. This week has also reminded me of how short life can be and how we need to make the most of our moments and to find happiness in the everyday. It has also been a reminder that if something is no longer serving you, it is time to move on.
On to the picks for the week!
P.S. Life is too short. Ask the guy out. Apply for that dream job. Go dance outside in the rain. Kick fear in the face. Find happiness in the little moments. xoxo
