Hold Up...That's Whack!

Hello All,

I can't remember if I mention this already but I got to move into school early for a leadership retreat much like I did during the summer. For the most part the conference was the same as last year but the keynote speaker was pretty cool and was really helpful going into this semester.

The fall semester was very hard for me. In away I was finally the person I always wanted to be. I had amazing friend, I was in an officer position, I was working and going to school. But with the exception of this blog I wasn't taking a lot of time for myself because I always wanted to be on the move.And my plate was beyond full and unbalanced. 

But our keynote speaker, Hoan Do, really reminded me about how important it is for us to take time during the semester to focus on yourself. He used a metephor about how when you're driving and your check egine light turns on you stop to check the light goes on you would stop and check your engine and that you should be doing that with yourself, when you start to get stress you should stop and spend time on yourself. 

That is something I really am going to try and do this semester. But the other part that really resinated with me was the inspiration for the title. He was telling us to think about all the negative thoughts that come into our mind, you know the thoughts. "I'm not pretty enough," "I'm not smart enough," "I'm not...enough." 

And he again did a car metaphor about how if your getting in the car and a song you hates come on you would change it because its whack.  Well he continued to tell us that every time we think I'm not enough to remind ourselves that is whack. And I think that is another think I need to remember. 

Those pieces of advice really have made me think and made me feel motivated for the semester. What gets you motivated for the semester? Let me know in the comments below!


  1. great advice. i too had a terrible semester even though there were a lot of good things about it. we have to remember that we ARE worth it!

    1. That's exactly how I feel there were some good parts about last semester but it was hard and stressful. I hope your semester goes better this time around. Thanks for reading. XOXO Emma.
