Humans as Gemstones | which one are you?

Sapphire (royalty blue) 

A Sapphire loves socializing, they’re the life of the party, and they are motivated by fun.
They like to be around a lot of people.
They love variety interacting with others.
They never see the negative side of a situation.
They love recognition.
In fact, they will work harder for recognition than they ever will for money.
From Sapphires, we can learn to not be so serious and that life can be fun if we let it.
However, Sapphires can improve by understanding not everyone is as positive as them.
Sapphires often hurt other people’s feeling by seeming to not care, when really they’re just looking at the positive side of things.
For a Sapphire to enjoy the ultimate writer’s life, they should focus on working with companies that offer recognition and praise.
Fundraising or speech writing might be a good niche for a Sapphire.
If your potential client is a Sapphire, make a point to praise their previous successes and always have something positive to say.

Pearl (sea mussel)

All the Gems want to help people. But helping is the prime motivator for a Pearl. They are not motivated by money.
They usually have strong convictions and are called to action by a cause.
They are thoughtful and patient.
They love to serve others and do not like to argue.
A Pearl loves to talk about their family.
They are okay with sharing personal information while they are getting to know someone.
If a Pearl senses that someone is a fake, they will lose trust in them.
Pearls, like Sapphires, love people and being around them, but not in large noisy groups.
Pearls prefer ‘long-term relationships’.
They’ll be your best friends for life.
They are goodlisteners and prefer talking to someone one on one.
They are trustworthy, loyal, and true to their word.
From Pearls, we can learn the importance of helping others and keeping our word.
However, Pearls often get walked on and taken advantage of because they are so helpful.
They can improve their own lives by being a bit more selective in how often they help others.
It’s okay to say no if it’s not in their best interest to be helpful in a certain situation.
If you’re a Pearl, try to avoid doing too much “free” work. It might make you feel good, but it will delay your progress on your real goals.
To appeal to a prospective client that is a Pearl, use real stories (remember, they can detect if you’re fake) about your previous clients and how you’ve helped them.

Ruby (Ruben Crystal)

Rubies like to win.
They are motivated by challenges, but if they can’t win, they won’t play.
They like to have the best of everything.
They like to be unique and stand out.
Rubies constantly have to be striving for a goal, a next step, or another challenge.
Rubies are often business owners and entrepreneurs because they like to lead.
Rubies are often missing sleep and skipping breakfast because they are incredibly productive and get more done in one day than anybody else.
Rubies are proud of their accomplishments and want to tell you about them.
They are also blessed with extra confidence and they’re not afraid to take a risk.
They are direct and to the point, even if it hurts someone’s feelings.
If you’re a Ruby, you’re probably applying for every job that comes along, but by narrowing your focus and putting more effort into a few proposals, you’ll get better results.
Also, Rubies typically need to work on their communication skills with the other Gems and learn to be more sensitive to others’ feelings.
If you have a potential client who is a Ruby, you can impress them by being an idea generator, making yourself available so they can be more productive, and by not getting offended if they hurt your feelings.

Emerald (green Beryl)

Emeralds are motivated by facts and figures. 
Everything is black and white.
They are often weak in communication and they are judged as insensitive and cold-hearted – but they’re not.
They are articulate.
They are very clear with their speech so they won’t be misunderstood, and they always ask, “Why?”
Emeralds are problem solvers who come up with multiple solutions to each problem.
They spend a lot of time on research to evaluate each possible solution to make sure they pick the right one.
They also tend to be perfectionists and want to figure it all out before starting.
Emeralds can teach us to be more true to our word and to become more organized.
They know it’s important to follow through, follow up, and do the tasks to the best of their abilities. That is something we should all strive to do.
If you’re an Emerald, you might be stuck in the learning phase.
You can move past it by.choosing one niche and getting started in just that area.
Also, to avoid missed opportunities, you should focus on making decisions faster.
If you have a potential client who is an Emerald, be sure to give them a lot of proof of your abilities. Include specific facts and figures about the results you’ve been able to get for other clients.
Don’t leave them with lingering questions.
Emeralds will do their own research, but if you give them what they need, you’ll impress them and win a sale.
I’m a pearl, which one best describes you?

15 Must try date ideas the old school way in 2020| Lifestyle

I think one of my 2020 goals to achieve is to go on a real date. I have never been on a real date before and i think the first time that kind off counted as a date was when i was 19.

My date and i went out to see a movie ‘THIS IS THE END” that was the first time i saw James Franco, Seth Rogen, John hills in a movie and also Rihanna made a cameo. It was supposed to be a movie about end time and why i said supposed is because it turned out to be a comedy, thriller and action packed in one. I know it wasn’t the ideal romance movie for a first date but i really enjoyed. Also, it was the first time my date and i were meeting after talking for weeks and we ended up dating. Oh i forced him to split the bill with me amd it made me feel better that i contributed to the date.

I have been going out with friends and family but when i said “date’, i meant no juice but a red wine, cute dress, little cute makeup or doing things we both love.

I know i have a old soul in the young body and i probably and mostly will choose old things, old styles, vintage everything over the new way of doing things. Nothing is wrong with doing things the way they do now and i still love it but i just love the old version of things.

So, i will be sharing with you guys 15 must try date ideas the old school way in 2020

A visit to the Museum
Learn a new skill together
Go on a paddle boat ride
A movie at the drive-In (can’t wait to do this)
A karaoke night
Dinner and a movie
Cook together
Recreate your first or favorite date
Star gazing in the backyard or make a truck bed
Take a class together like painting, dancing and more
Play fun games like; Truth or Dare, board games, or video game
A full hearted talk about everything with your favourite junks
A silent moment enjoying each other’s company
Visit a local fair or street fair together

It’s not too late to say happy new year | Do i really have a new year resolution?

Happy new year my after dark lovelies.

I took a much needed break to just figure out things and I am glad that I’m back here to write.

New year resolution

Well, during the holiday periods, i think i got tired of seeing the new year, new me posts. It is very important to plan ahead of things, it is also important to have written goals, plans and strategies but not everyone loves when things are planned and i guess I’m one of them.

Maybe it’s just the fear of been disappointed if things didn’t go has I’ve planned or written them down. I have one major goal this year and it is the ability to trust and believe in myself and also the abilty to write more and Express myself through writing.

What is your new year resolution?

Thank you for reading
