You need to get up and go outside. Too often, when we go for a walk, we think we’re doing good stuff for our insides, mentally and physically. But, we often just look down, letting our worries and burdens fill our mind. So I want you to do this the next time you go for a walk:
Imagine filling up a backpack with all your worries and burdens. Financial worry goes in the big compartment. Health worries go in those awesome side pockets. Family burdens can go in that little secret zippy pocket inside.
Okay, all packed up? Good. Now, put it on your back. All situated? Awesome. Now go outside. Are you outside your door yet?
Because as soon as you get outside and you hear that door shut behind you I want you to RIP THAT FUCKING BACKPACK OFF AND THROW THE FUCKER AS FAR AS YOU CAN.
NOW, go for your walk. And if you look down at that sidewalk, Ima hunt you down and lob a brick at your head.
LOOK UP. SEE all that BEAUTY? See the sky? Is it blue? Grey? Clouds? Can you make out shapes? This morning I found a car, a cherub (which subsequently turned into an amazing likeness of an Oompa Loompa), and a bear head in the clouds.
Look at the trees changing color, if you’re anywhere where they are right now. (I am.) See the vividness of WHAT IS AROUND YOU?
Now THAT’s a fucking walk, my friends. Without the burdens, without the worries (cuz they’re somewhere you chucked ‘em in the backpack, remember?), without alllll the negativity we tend to carry with us. Don’t you feel ever so much better now? <3
At some point, you’re going to have to stop pretending to do things and actually do them, if you want to reach any level of success in your business. To that end, I’ve created this little Public Service Announcement video.
As it happens, whenever my husband and I go to Fitger’s Brewhouse for lunch, he turns all IM ninja strategizer on me, so I generally bring a notebook and take notes. Today was seriously no exception. I have a full page of notes from today’s little soiree.
One of the topics we discussed was how him and I and our family live life like it’s a smorgasbord. Let me explain a bit. [Read More...]
So, the last time I challenged myself, I got half nekkid in front of a camera and sang. What could top that? Well, that really depends on your perspective.
See, I used to have a very deep-seated need for acceptance. This has gotten me into more trouble than I care to admit, and slowly…very slowly…in my adult life, I have come to realize that I not everyone will like me and that I can’t possibly please everyone. Which is absolutely true, right? Not only is it true, it’s absolutely OKAY, too! Not everyone HAS to like you, and you’ll still be just as awesome![Read More...]
