We Take Note

We Take Note believes every creative has a story to share & a journey worth celebrating. We Take Note started as a story-sharing platform. Our goal was to bring people closer together through the power of storytelling. After reading and reviewing countless story submissions, we realized that every author had something in common: their desire to change the world through their creativity.

5 THINGS YOU SHOULD DO EVERY MORNING

Being a creative entrepreneur can come with many stressors. Many times you're wondering if your social media following is enough or if you'll have enough money to support your dreams. Instead of worrying your day away, start your morning right by clearing your thoughts and starting the day with a clean slate.

Do you know when it’s time to hustle vs. when it’s time to flow?

When my anxiety finally peaked and introduced itself in the form of gastrointestinal issues, I hit the breaks and vowed to start taking care of myself, mind, body and soul. I had to start practicing self-care. While the acts of self-care can vary based on the individual, the most common interpretation of the term is prioritization of one’s mental, physical and/or emotional health.

 

These Are My Reflections

A few weeks ago I met up to record an episode of the We Take Note Podcast episode with Jacqulyn Whang at a co-working space in downtown. We discussed advocacy, wellness and writing. As someone who is always on the other side of the questions as a writer myself, it was a little (a lot) nerve-racking to have to answer them – especially because these were personal questions about me.
