Why So Serious?

Blog Post - Why So Serious?

Seriously. Why do I take myself so seriously? Do you do that too?

It’s the oddest thing, because I love to laugh. I love silliness. In fact, people who are secure enough in themselves to be silly in public are some of my favorite people! And I don’t know how many times over the years I’ve said the key to my sanity is that I don’t take life too seriously. Continue reading Why So Serious?

Stop Waiting For The Perfect Time

Have you ever put off something in your life that you really wanted to do simply because you were waiting for the “right” or “perfect” time to do it?

That’s exactly what happened to me. I decided to go easy on myself and not stick to a weekly blogging schedule but, it turns out, I took it too far. I left waaay too much space for Resistance to creep in and support my procrastination with all kinds of silly “reasons” why the timing wasn’t right to jump back in just yet. And the longer I put it off, the more reasons (*cough* excuses *cough cough*) I thought of to continue putting it off. Resistance is a self-feeding monster.

Baby Steps Are Good

Baby steps are good.

Baby Steps are good. Baby steps are fine. Baby steps are necessary. This is what I have to keep reminding myself whenever I feel like I’m not moving fast enough or efficient enough. At some point (I don’t think I was always like this) I came to believe that I have to have everything figured out, ready to be executed perfectly, before I can share my creation/service/performance with anyone. Obviously this is an aspect of my perfectionism, an aspect that I am actively trying to overcome.

What do you want to do with your life?

What do you want to do with your life? What is your dream job?

 

This is basically the adult version of “What do you want to do when you grow up?” except that when we answer it as children it tends to be more pure, free of all conflicting thoughts like “but how can I possibly make money doing that?” or “what will so-and-so think of me if I do that?”  When you answer it as a child your dream job is fueled by passion.  Continue reading What do you want to do with your life?

Lessons Learned from the Hay House World Summit

If you’ve read a bit of my blog, you’ve probably figured out that I’m a fan of Hay House.  I listen to Hay House Radio on my commute to and from work each day (the only reason I’ve found to be grateful for the hour long drive each way) and this is the second year in a row I’ve had the pleasure of listening to the Hay House World Summit.
