🌙✨ Why Dreams Matter ✨🌙
Dreams are more than just fleeting images and emotions that we experience while we sleep. They are a window into our subconscious mind, a realm where creativity, exploration, and self-discovery intertwine. Dreams matter because they hold immense power and significance in our lives. Here's why:
1️⃣ Insight and Self-Reflection: Dreams offer us a unique opportunity to delve into the depths of our psyche. They can provide valuable insights into our thoughts, emotions, and unresolved issues. By analyzing our dreams, we can gain a deeper understanding of ourselves and our innermost desires.
2️⃣ Problem Solving and Creativity: Dreams have a remarkable ability to spark creativity and facilitate problem-solving. Many inventors, artists, and scientists throughout history have credited their dreams for breakthrough ideas and solutions. Dreams allow us to explore unconventional connections and perspectives that may not be accessible in our waking state.
3️⃣ Emotional Processing: Dreams provide a safe space for us to process and work through our emotions. They can help us confront fears, heal from past traumas, and gain emotional resilience. Dreams act as a natural outlet for our subconscious to express and release pent-up emotions, leading to a healthier psychological state.
4️⃣ Inspiration and Motivation: Dreams have the power to ignite a fire within us. They can inspire us to pursue our passions, set goals, and strive for personal growth. When we dream big and envision our desired future, we become motivated to take action and manifest those dreams into reality.
5️⃣ Spiritual and Transcendent Experiences: Dreams have been revered across cultures as a gateway to the spiritual realm. They can provide us with profound and transformative experiences, connecting us to something greater than ourselves. Spiritual insights, visitations from loved ones, and moments of enlightenment can all unfold in the ethereal landscape of our dreams.
Let's appreciate the significance of dreams and embrace their presence in our lives. They hold the potential to unlock hidden truths, ignite our imagination, and guide us towards our fullest potential. So, dream big, explore the realms of your subconscious, and let your dreams shape your reality!
As we all know there is a trend occurring in the hiring market that is seeming to focus more on the soft skills that candidates possess than their academic education and professional qualifications. You know, Hard Skills are your technical expertise and Soft Skills are how you behave & interact with others. It appears that hiring managers are more often focusing on finding candidates who possess a repertoire of soft skills that make them a good fit for leadership roles as well as their company culture.
These days, it takes more than confidence and personality to make you a standout candidate. Interviews have always included behavioral questions, however, these types of questions are now more important for candidates to be aware of. If you are seeking a job role that exposes you to team or consumer interactions you need this information in your job search toolbox. It is invaluable.
@Laura Thebodeau just posted about Soft Skills and @Steven Ransom recently posted about Interview Introductions and it got me thinking about an article I had saved previously because as a hiring manager, I used these very same questions to help format my interviews with prospective employees in Hospitality. This article focuses on what is known as the STAR method and it can be incredibly useful to help job seekers answer some of the common behavioral interview questions they will surely have to answer.
I recommend using this method to identify experiences you've had in your job and solidify your answers using real life examples. Doing so will improve your confidence and enhance your ability to respond to behavioral questions without losing your composure. Check out this terrific article & let me know what you think in the comments 👍
Be sure to read Laura's and Steve's posts as well as they go hand in hand on this topic. Let us know in the comments about your experiences and thoughts on this. We'd love to have your input and insights!

I'm telling you the truth...(Must Read Without Failure.)
It can take a person almost a lifetime to realize this principle of truth.
Don't let this happen to you.
It doesn't matter what happened in your past, so much more than the greatness that awaits you in life.
Blessings come in [different] distinguishes and directions. I take responsibility for my past, present and future actions to recognize when they come, and how they may fall.
Triple..."don't, don't, and don't let other people's opinions about you, become your future or reality." ~Edward Alexander
Try and apply what works in your life, then everything else will fall-in-place in you.
I Believe You Can...!
Let's face it, as we get older and job circumstances change as they often do, we're faced with the challenge of what to do next. Most of us aren't prepared to hang our hat, give up the ghost or park our tenny's and spend the remainder of our working years parked on the porch wondering what we could have done differently.
Many of us have had incredible lives full of adventure, trauma, enlightenment, hard lessons and a myriad of other experiences that we could share. While growing up I was fascinated by the stories my grandfather would tell me about his home and childhood in Germany. I was mesmerized by some of the stories told to me by older clients when I worked as a Senior Protective Aid. I remember one client in particular who had been married to the same woman for 57 years and they lived in the same house for 53 of those. He was blind when I met him but he would sit on the porch and tell me stories about when he was the conductor for an all-female orchestra. They traveled all over the globe and when he retired from that he became an architectural engineering consultant and helped design and build bridges and dams all over the United States.
Do you have amazing stories to tell? Have you regaled friends and family about experiences you've had and lessons you've learned along the way? If that's the case, being a freelance writer may just be your thing and you can still sit on the porch without wondering if you could have done something differently.
There are many magazines that will pay writers for great content. I'm providing a link for those interested to peruse to see if this is an opportunity that might be just the thing for you!
Be sure to come back and let us know what you find out about these opportunities and if you decide to embark upon a new adventure!
Mindset Is Everything
When you've been searching for a job day in and day out and none of your efforts are successful, it's easy to become frustrated, depressed and angry. That sense of desperation begins to encroach on every thought and the domino effect can be devastating to to daily life and wellbeing. A negative mindset is like a heavy burden that weighs you down and wears you out.
You aren't alone I assure you. Most of us have been in that situation and some of us have struggled for way too long. It can lead to seriously harmful negative thought processes that culminate in the "nothingness" mindset. "Nothings going right for me, nothing is getting better, nothings ever going to change, nothing I do works out"... eventually you get depressed and start to feel like you have no hope. Yep, depression is the destroyer of hope. And, I'm sure we've all heard someone say "There's always hope" and immediately felt annoyed by their blissful ignorance because we sure as heck aren't feeling it.
I don't know if I would call it hope but I was in a very dark place myself and completely immersed in my "nothingness". Every day yielded zero results for my efforts and I was so over it. Then something came my way that helped change my thought process and my mindset and I'd like to share it.
During that time I happened to come across a story about someone who shared a plan she had made to help her just get through each day with enough determination to wake up the next day and do it again. She pointed out some of the simplest things she changed that helped make a difference in how she felt and those things carried her through until she finally found a job. She shared that it was the hardest thing she ever had to do but in short time, it worked out for her. She said that her defeatest mindset was her worst enemy and although it took a while, she began to feel a different sense of determination and her mindset began to change. After following her new routine for a couple of weeks, a job offer came along and set her on a path to feeling better about herself and the world around her. She shared that her mindset had almost destroyed her and she would have just missed that opportunity.
I couldn't find that story (it's been years) but I did find something that might be helpful. I know that her story helped me and I've shared it with others that needed to hear it. So today I'm encouraging you to turn off the TV, get up off the couch, go somewhere pleasant and peaceful and go to this website and see what it has to offer. It can't hurt to check it out.
You are welcome to share thoughts, comments and your story as well.
