This Saturday, I had an extremely chill day (as you might’ve noticed if you’ve been following along in my stories.)
Taking my time, reflecting on time
No morning alarm and I took my time enjoying my fudgy peanut butter oatmeal breakfast, writing in my journal, and taking an hour to drink one cup of black coffee, then getting to work.
This Saturday brought me back to my bittersweet freelance writing days, where time and energy were ample, but opportunities weren’t.
Victories, big and small
Yesterday, I received a few compliments at work about this business article I’d written.
Yesterday, a dear friend of mine told me she thought to herself “What would Delfina write about this?” in various situations. That made my day.
A few days ago, referring to a question I asked in a Slack channel I’m part of about last week’s article where I answered common job interview questions 𝟏𝟎𝟎% honestly (I asked “Will this piece ruin my career and chances of getting hired in the future?”), a stranger said, “If a company won’t hire you after reading this, you don’t want em anyway”.
I would like to go back in time and tell my 2017 self how it would all work out and pay off, if I just kept at it.
But hey, I guess I didn’t need to do that.
”Stop focusing on the wrong things. Start focusing on improving yourself a little bit, every day.”
Your small daily victories aren’t small forever.
I also wanted to thank you all for your support, we hit a record number of visitors in July and I’m glad you’re enjoying The Inner Dolphin.
