Being open-minded is a quality trait to have. We are born into a world of differences. People have differences of opinion. We have differences in culture. People have different societal norms.
With that as a collective, we should challenge ourselves daily to be tolerant of those around us.
While I, too, struggle with being consistent with my open-mindedness. I thought it was important to communicate with you 10 reasons why I believe it is great to have an open mind. FYI. Click the reason to read more about it!
June 2016 was my birth month! And it was interesting to say the least. Of course, celebrating another year of life is amazing. But I also learned some hard truths about life. I also got clear on what it is I want for myself during the rest of 2016.
You should know that I am addicted to social media. I manage client accounts and help brands build their online communities and tribes. I am a social media power user who is on a quest to become a thought leader in that space.
The only way I can hold my clients and myself accountable is by reporting the stats each month! For clients I do a report, for myself I figured a blog post would suffice.
If you would like to work with me for a collab, a brand sponsorship project, or have a general business inquiry. Please email me via misstkms[at]gmail[dot]com.
It is my goal for these stats to help you get a better understand of the reach I current have. As well as see the potential growth I am able to achieve!
Writing has always been a way for people, including myself, to express themselves. From poets to authors. From novelists to autobiographers. The written word as difficult as it may be for some, comes second nature to others. I am blessed to be one of the people who have the talent for writing.
But talent is the beginning of it. The second part is the passion. Being passionate about things in life is the reason why those things work. As a result today I am sharing with you a poem I wrote on Snapchat a few weeks back.
Share it will your friends online and follow me on Instagram: @terri2kool to keep up with me!
Humans have a deep desire to receive validation from outside sources. Whether it is justification for an outfit we put together. Or credit for the work we have completed on a project, there are many things we want people to pat us on the back for. But why? Why do we care so much about what others have to say about us?
The most obvious answer is that society made us this way. The society of our culture. The family norms we were taught. The school rules and regulations we had to follow. Whenever we did something right or “worthy” of praise, we received validation.
Celebrating life is something I learned to do on a daily basis. I have meek and mild mannerisms, which lend themselves to innocence. While being the life of the party on other occasions.
This makes for the perfect Gemini! Today is my born day, earth-strong, birthday, life anniversary, etc. While I am not one for elaborate pulp and circumstance on this day, I do take care to reflect on my previous year of life.
What happened since June 19, 2015 to June 18, 2016?
Happy April, Kool Kidd! You have made it through quarter one of 2016 and you have never looked better! You have accomplished so many great things in 3 months, that the remaining 9 months in 2016 should watch out for all the amazing things you have in store.
Personally, 2016 has been one of mixed emotions. I’m excited to be making an impact and positively influencing those around me through blogging and social media marketing but I am also exhausted by the work that is required by someone whom much is given to.
Many people ask me: “Terri, how do you do it? Do you have a clone? When are you going share your secrets with us, so we can be like you?“
