Are You Living Your Eulogy or Your Resume? Thoughts on Arianna Huffington’s Latest Article

I read a riveting article by Arianna Huffington, President and Editor-in-Chief of The Huffington Post titled, “Are You Living Your Eulogy or Your Resume?” The article described those of us who place a priority on career success and not cultivating relationships, enjoying life, developing positive personal character, etc. Basically, if someone were to eulogize you, what would they say? Here is a little nugget that stuck out:

Have you noticed that when people die, their eulogies celebrate life very differently from the way we define success in our everyday existence?…For most of us, our eulogy will be not just the first formal marking down of what our lives were about but the only one. The eulogy is the foundational document of our legacy, of how people remember us, of how we live on in the minds and hearts of others.

There is nothing wrong with career success, however, I think our generation is more absorbed with status and the who-is-who instead of making life more memorable. It is time to start pursuing passions, no matter how silly they are. Picking up that phone and calling an old friend. How about spending more time with loved ones and stop taking them for granted.

What do your eulogy would say about you? I know it is a bit weird to think about, but take a moment to reflect on it and share your thoughts.

Words of Advice from Devi Dev, Host of MTV’s Hip Hop POV x Radio Personality

Like us, Devi Dev, host of MTV’s Hip Hop POV and co-host on Sirius XM’s Sway in the Morning, is a music lover, jokester, incessant chatterer and career woman. She is building an empire in a male dominated industry with a million-dollar smile, and still finds time to get married, travel and spend time with her loved ones.

The bubbly Los Angeles native was nice enough to give some quick insight on confidence and love.

Our motto is to “Be Bold, Beautiful and Brilliant. Give us your perspective on what it takes to be a bold, beautiful and brilliant woman.

Fearlessness! Be fearless in your belief’s, paths and actions. Not being scared of what people think and not being scared of fully being yourself at all times is what I consider to be beautiful, bold and brilliant about myself and what I find BBB in others.

Also, what tips can you give the single ladies about finding true love?

For single ladies i’d say enjoy being single! Right when I was at the peak of fully loving and embracing being single and quality time with myself…love smacked me across my face. I always found it cliche when people said things like “Love happens when you’re not looking” but I’ve found it to be the truest thing. If I hadn’t been fully comfortable being by myself and in love with myself first…I wouldn’t have been ready for love when it found me. So ladies…enjoy your me time!
