#girlboss

It’s a term I absolutely love! According to a popularĀ Netflix movie, a #girlboss is strong, smart, resilient, opinionated, confident and feisty! Do you agree? If not, no worries! Everyone has a different definition. While the point is to define what being a #girlboss means FOR YOU, the more important thing is to BE THAT. In your personal life, work life or however else you define your life.

BE. THE. BOSS. OF. YOUR. OWN. LIFE.

Not someone else’s. Live your best life. Stay in your lane and mind your own business. šŸ™‹šŸ½ If you need to find (or re-find) inspiration you can listen to a #girlboss playlist (Spotify), read a #girlboss book, check out #girlboss quotes on Pinterest, set up a #girlboss lockscreen on your phone or take a #girlbossĀ trip. #whateverworks

LIVE. THE. LIFE. YOU. WANT. MAKE. IT. HAPPEN.

You can be 20 or 30 or 40 or 50 or 60 or 100+! Just know that while you are doing all those things, so are others and it’s okay! For me, being a #girlbossĀ means protecting my space and my peace. I guard that very closely because most times I just CANNOT!!!! šŸš«

FIND. YOUR. PASSION. AND. DO. THAT.

FACT: I like writing and paper. And guess what? So do A LOT of other people. As normal, we take the things we love whole new #levels! See also: Planner Situation, my current favorite penĀ (there’s nothing wrong with a little bling!) or Shop PaperSource. Another one of my personal #girlboss criteria is to have order in my life – in written form of course – (and to look the part šŸ˜‰)! The essential item I use to do this is an agenda. Mine is currently being repaired and I feel SO VERY stifled. šŸ˜©

You may have noticed I underlined a few words above: FIND, BE, DO, LIVE. They are all verbs because at the heart of being a #girlboss is to takeĀ ACTION.

GO. GET. IT. šŸ–¤

Master Computer (or Life) Filter

Let me warn you: this is not meant to be an informative-like post; but, rather a rant. So buckle your seat belts…. Every day when I log into Twitter, Facebook, Feedly and otherĀ social media sites I see great articles and things I like to read every day. Sometimes I get frustrated, like tonight and think to myself, “Why is everybody posting about these stupidĀ things I’d rather not see/hear about??”

button deleteWhy can’t I create a Google-like search for my ENTIREĀ computerĀ that filters OUT content from EVERY site I log into, based on my preferences. How would this work? I’m glad you ask! When you perform a normal Google search, you would typically type something like “mustang”. You can FILTER OUTĀ theĀ types of mustangs you DON’TĀ want to see by typingĀ this EXACT text this in the search box: “mustang -red”. The “-red”Ā is what narrows the search results and ELIMINATES red mustangs. Think ofĀ a Venn Diagram:Ā theĀ largest circle is the master set (or universe) – it contains all mustangs: black, white, pink, red, orange purple, you name it. Within that circle there are smaller of circles: one with all pinkĀ mustangsĀ in it, one for the redĀ mustangs, etc. You’re not sure what colorĀ mustang you want but you know red is out of the question. So you search for exactly that: mustang -redĀ (more Google search tips here) Maybe something good is coming out of this post after all.

Anyway, I think you get my drift. This is what I want for my computer – or actually for my life entire would be even betterĀ – I want to create a master Google-like search on my computer for stuff that I never want to hear or see. It would look something like this:

SHOW ALL -kanye -oscars -taylorswift -kardashian -justinbieber

filter_dataApple are you listening? Maybe there’s a solution already out there – one forĀ Chrome, one forĀ Facebook, Instagram, Feedly, etc. That’s not what I’m asking for. I want one MASSIVE and MASTER filter that would work onĀ my entire computer (or life if you’re ambitious) and I want it now, pleaseĀ (see, I can be polite) Besides, who hasĀ time to install a separate filter, plugin or extension for each app, siteĀ or service they use.

So, that’s all I have. Yes, it’s a rant – I don’t do many of these – but I did tell you that from the beginning. If you’re still reading, thanks for listening. At least you can enjoy the video below and get a few more tips on filtering your Google search results. #TheFilterGirl
