Look In the Mirror

Look In the Mirror

Are you ever that person that gets asked a lot of questions? Like for directions, or where something is in the aisle, or how to cook something when you are in the grocery store?Do you have that face where no matter what you do, whether you are in a cab, or hair salon or subway, people end up talking to you? And in my case, random children tend to giggle when they see my face. Hrm...I don't know if I should be offended or feel mushy about the whole thing. Generally speaking I feel that I sometimes have a "come talk to me" stamped on my head. 

But, I've come to a conclusion.  So, I have a round face.  And apparently when I smile, I appear very friendly (not so much when I don't...I have quite the RBF apparently).  So according to Cosmo, Rounded Face Shape: A round face shape is characterized by a wide hairline and fullness below the cheekbones. This face shape typically means you're a people person who is very giving and kind, and always puts people first.  There are some apparent negatives as well, but today we won't concentrate on those. My point being is that people like talking to me. And generally speaking, I do like to listen.

A lot of times, it ends up being asking me for my opinion or advice. And in the years of my life thus far I've gotten in trouble for talking too much with friends, and Ms. Hillman sent my outside for punishment. I didn't understand at 7 years old because I was trying to help my friend with her candy sharing problem!!! Then as I got into middle school and high school, I became a peer counselor. I've always wanted to help people in school and there were some very basic techniques  that I still use today.

When I got to college I wanted to become a college ambassador and I represented my school and spoke with interested student applicants and their parents to discuss major options, on campus living and providing some suggestions and insights what college life and school would be like. Finally, when I graduated, I became an Alumni ambassador for a while, and then for work, I work with my colleagues through many work challenges. I also am fortunate to be able to meet with lot of students interested to get into the corporate world on behalf of my company. 

My point is...I've heard a LOT of stories, a lot of concerns and field a ton of questions. People always want:

"I want to be best friends with that girl"

"I want to get into this school"

"I want to get that job"

"I want to have more freedom"

You can always get help, and you should get help, but fundamentally, YOU are the one that can make those wants a reality. YOU have to put that hard work in and not give up. YOU have to be your toughest critic, but YOU also have to be the biggest cheerleader. Don't look for hand outs, don't assume you can rely on anyone 100%. So, if you're searching for that one person that will change your life, take a look in the mirror....cause it's going to be you.
