Mini Makeover: Emotional Attachment Edition

This is a biggie. Giving away things that we no longer use but feel personal attached to can be hard. I admit that I’ve even shed a few tears as I gave away some of my kid’s toys, but I can honestly say that I never regretted it. It was just a brief moment of sad as I let go of the past so I could be able to embrace the future. Remember that you’re just letting go of the item- not the personal memories. I’m not saying that you have to give away everything- you can always keep a few favorite treasures if you have the space. The key is to make sure you contain it-as in, set a limit of one box, one piece of furniture, one piece of art and stick to it.

What Do You Do?

We are powerless in the face of many of life questions, but not all of them. The next time someone ask you what you do, tell them who you are. Share something about yourself that is true that matters. It will create the opportunity for a connection far more rewarding than any resume ever could.

Constructive Change

In my four years on the San Antonio City Council and five years as mayor, I interacted with many constituents with varying issues and interests. When I was a policy maker, it was most effective for me when citizens were positive and constructive and when they provided possible solutions instead of just telling me about problems. Paint the picture for your elected official of what your desired change would look like. Then build your numbers. The more folks rallying for your concern or cause, the better—you’ll weigh more heavily on the mind of your elected official. It’s true that the squeaky wheel gets the grease. Be persistent. It’s wonderful to be living in a time of a resurgence in citizen activism. Being engaged, voting, and taking your concerns directly to your elected officials really can make a difference.Julián Castro
