What You'll Love About Babysitting Your Nieces and Nephews

Babysitting can be a tedious task, even when it’s your own niece or nephew. Infants and toddlers demand so much attention and affection even for the smallest things. It requires skills, discipline, and management. It’s not easy to feed one and make sure the other doesn’t fall from the bed while there’s something cooking something in the stove. Children get super playful when being surrounded by other kids their age, and things can get out of hand in a second. If only you could cut your body in halves.

Why You Should Start Writing A Novel | 5 Reasons to Get Your Story Out Today

You should write a novel because you owe it to your dreams. You owe it to your younger self who still continues to imagine himself when signing books. As we all know, time is running out for all of us. It’s only a matter of time before we wait in our death bed with regrets of the past. As of the moment, you are creating history. You don’t want to look back and realize that you haven’t done anything in your life worth remembering. You don’t want to sit on your front porch admiring children for their youth. Don’t be like most people who only dream but don’t have the guts to turn it into action.

12 Signs You've Grown: Inner Peace Breakthroughs

In your twenties, it’s without a doubt that you’ll experience those rare inner peace breakthroughs that make you change your perspective about life. When that time comes, you’ll reaffirm that age doesn’t truly determine maturity. It comes with experience and reflection that you’ll realize you’ve grown.

With this being said, what are the instances that make you grow? What are the signs that can make you say you’ve grown wiser? And when you indeed encounter these exceptional moments of your life, what do you do about it? Is this a once-in-a-lifetime moment, or do you intend to instill and share these insights to your family and friends? As you’re still on the starting line, you may not be totally convinced with your plans right now, you’ll realize what you’re yearning for what can’t be bought with money. 

Be the Most Productive in Your Twenties Before It's Too Late

Productivity should not be a one-time occasion. It shouldn’t have to feel like a miracle when you get a lot of things done. You shouldn’t choose which days to be productive. You should actualize your goals with discipline and consistency  to be productive every day — that’s the ultimate goal for a successful person. Focus and determination must be running in your blood, fueling your drive to wake up every day with purpose. Your night-time routine should include planning and preparing yourself for tomorrow — another day of hustling and grinding. Successful people don’t see the journey as a long, painstaking process. They see it as momentary battles to be won and conquered one day at a time. 

6 Best Ways to Respond to Criticism

Before you act out of impulse, train yourself to remain calm in situations like these. When you’re confronted with unsolicited criticism from people (especially those whom you don’t expect to hear from at all), understand that you don’t control what others have to say about you. Even if you live a life worth emulating, you won’t always get the feedback you think you deserve to hear. You can’t please everyone, and convincing yourself you are an exception will only burn you out. People will always have something to say, that’s just the way it is.
