Make Your Life Assignment Your Career And Job

“Don’t make your job your assignment. Rather, make your life assignment your career and job”
― Sunday Adelaja

“May you reach that level within, where you no longer allow your past or people with toxic intentions to negatively affect or condition you.”
― Lalah Delia

“I’d tell men and women in their midtwenties not to settle for a job or a profession or even a career. Seek a calling. Even if you don’t know what that means, seek it. If you’re following your calling, the fatigue will be easier to bear, the disappointments will be fuel, the highs will be like nothing you’ve ever felt.”
― Phil Knight, Shoe Dog: A Memoir by the Creator of NIKE

“I honor you for every time
this year you:

got back up
vibrated higher
shined your light
and loved and elevated
beyond

—the call of duty.”
― Lalah Delia

“It is a common enough mid-career urge: having taken care of life’s immediate needs, some of us yearn to chase villains, right wrongs, fight on the side of the angels.”
― Tim Wu, The Attention Merchants: The Epic Scramble to Get Inside Our Heads

“Dear my strong girls, you will all go through that phase of life making a mistake of helping a toxic girl whose friendship with you turns into her self-interest. This kind of girls is a real burden towards the empowerment of other females as they can never get past their own insecurity and grow out of high-school-like drama. Despite how advanced we are in educating modern women, this type will still go through life living in identity crisis, endlessly looking for providers of any kind at the end of the day. They can never stand up for others or things that matter because they can’t stand up for themselves. They care what everyone thinks only doing things to impress men, friends, strangers, everyone in society except themselves, while at the same time can’t stand seeing other women with purpose get what those women want in life. But let me tell you, this is nothing new, let them compete and compare with you as much as they wish, be it your career, love or spirit. You know who you are and you will know who your true girls are by weeding out girls that break our girlie code of honor, but do me a favor by losing this type of people for good. Remind yourself to never waste time with a person who likes to betray others’ trust, never. Disloyalty is a trait that can’t be cured. Bless yourself that you see a person’s true colors sooner than later. With love, your mama. XOXO”
