Friday Favorite Links

Happy Friday!

I am writing this post before heading into NYC to meet up with my best friend and her mom for our monthly dinner. Each month we chose a new restaurant and this month we have reservations to Sinigual a Mexican restaurant near Grand Central Station.

I wanted to share some articles and links from the past week or so that have really resonated with me for many different reasons.

Last Friday I was enjoying lunch with my closest friend from elementary school when she stopped me dead in the middle of a sentence which I was complaining about something. ( It's bad when I can't remember what I was complaining about.) That night I read Laura's post on her May Challenge: No Complaining. I try to constantly preach #ThePowerOfPositiveThinking because when I get to a dark place I remind myself if my outlook can change I can be in a better place. We need to catch ourselves and then stop and of course it is easier said then done. I am not making it an official challenge but with both my conversation and this post I am going to work on catching myself and less complaining and more gratitude. A vent here and there is OK just when you get into a routine of negative thoughts and complaints your headed down the wrong road.

If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram you know I am constantly re-tweeting and liking many of the articles from Levo League. There May campaign is all about Mentorship something that I believe in. I have been super lucky to have one great mentor now since graduating college seven years ago. She works in the nonprofit industry and she always will listen even when I feel like I am constantly babbling. However the more I read the many articles on mentors and how to find them, where to find them, and how the relationship works I know it's time to step up my game.

Michelle and I are Twitter friends and I look forward to the day we get to meet IRL. She is a nonprofit professional in NYC and writes for a career advice and job seeker website, Ploymint for millennials written by millennials. Each article is better then the one before.


What are some of your favorite articles, links, posts lately?

XoXo,
Tracy
