    Before I continued to read on, I had a knee jerk reaction to the question, and it was the same answer as Mary Jane’s. I struggle with the fact the they are insanely independent and selfish with their time. I wish they would pay it forward more often, they are not perfect, what is? But I’ve interviewed so many times and you’re right I might have tried to give an answer that would sound more “professional.” But wow how true to be authentic and honest it certainly pays off in the end. Thanks for the great read.

      Thanks for reading and sharing your thoughts, Kimberly. Here’s to us “unprofessionals” 😉 :).

    I have often heard that the world is watching our every move. As Christians we should live & act like Christ. In interviews or in life we need to give real answers to tough questions. We meed to be open & honest even if we don’t get the job. Our words & influence matter. We might just make an impact in someone’s life. Let’s be people of influence & raise good children.

    Blessings 🙂

    Your comment makes me think of this: it truly serves us best to be who we are, not our version of someone else. THAT is exhausting and impossible to maintain.

    It’s something really close to my heart – authenticity and being genuine – as i was raised to be a people pleaser and it didn’t necessarily lead me to a happy life. Instead I was constantly switching between what I thought I needed to be to please others instead of just being myself and finding my own tribe. It led me on many side paths and unhealthy diversions. Now I am finally coming home to being myself and realising that I am not such a bad person after all.
    Thank you
