I’m feelin’ all the red lately.  It used to be my least favorite color to wear, but something changed.  I used to think it brought out the pink in my skin, but now I think it goes well with my tones.  Maybe because I use self-tanner now haha.

Speaking of red, one of the main things this color represents is strength, which has been a very big theme for me this past month.  Everyday I’m gaining more and more strength to stand up for myself, especially in the work world.  I’ve had my fair share of being taken advantage of, and to be honest I’m SO over it.  As I get older, the less bullshit I can put up with.  Being young and new to the industry that you work in DOES NOT give anyone the right to walk all over you.  I’ve recently been blown away by the situations I’ve found myself in.

I think it’s so important to know your worth.  You know what you deserve and you shouldn’t take anything less.  I’m starting to show more strength in my business endeavors and I can definitely notice a difference.  It’s kind of like a subtle little “don’t f*ck with me” but in a nice, professional way.  More of like a “this is me, this is what I can do, take it or leave it” kind of thing.  DONE WITH THE B.S.!

I know I’m not the only one who has been taken advantage of in the workplace.. what are your thoughts on showing strength and standing up for yourself in situations where you feel you are being taken advantage of?  Leave a comment below, I would love to hear.

    Red is a nice and powerful color and looks good on you. I feel the same, some people take advantage of me because I am too kind. I worry about how others think about me and totaly forget my own feelings. I have to work on my self-esteem and se me as a important person. So stay up for yourself and demand respect, yor deserve it so much!
