We’re on a roll…and the choice is yours

Standard

Each choice we make in life is a step in the direction our lives will take.

The biggest choice one has to make is do we travel towards the best version of ourselves or do we remain bogged down within ourselves held captive by our fears.

I have chosen the path of being the best version of me that I can be…

Which means showing up for my life and speaking my truth…

There are those out there who will not like me speaking my truth…and will do much in their power to shut me down…all I can say to that is…🖕🖕🏻🖕🏼🖕🏽🖕🏾🖕🏿.

Showing up…means setting up a nightly routine so I am refreshed and ready for the day and not dragging my ass like an old tired dog. I won’t say – get up at the same time everyday as I already do that…my wee mouser dog requires insulin injections twice a day at the same time every day. I’m notorious for staying up until 3 AM as I have issues with turning my brain off if you will.

Showing up…means working daily at my business especially when I really don’t feel like it and would rather curl up with a good book to pass the time.

Showing up…means living in my head less and living in the world me.

Showing up…means leaving my comfort zone and doing the things that need doing even if they are icky…because that’s the job.

Showing up…means embracing the fact that growing old ain’t for the faint at heart.

Showing up…means embracing who I am currently and forming me into who I want to be.

Showing up…means accepting others more and judging others less.

Showing up…means cutting myself some slack when I fall down.

Showing up…means….letting me…be myself.

It’s time to show up…

The Key is Practicing Your Craft Everyday…Even If It’s For Just Yourself.

Standard

I think it was Stephen King who once said that in order to be a writer you have to write something everyday. I think this holds true for almost everything we do.

It’s how people can sometimes turn hobbies into actual careers. It’s practicing their craft…EVERY DAY.

I know there are plenty of people out there who do the 9-5 and are happy to do it; and we need those people. Because let’s face it; we need customer service reps, and managers. I’ve grumbled enough myself about not reaching a real live person on the other end of the phone line to ever truly embrace full automation of our society. I think that’s why I favour table top gaming over video gaming…that human interaction.

Still the 9-5 aside; there are those who while doing that 9-5 also have a side gig. Building Soap Box Racers (I still wish my dad would have let me have one); Gazebos; Backyard Play Sets, Etc. Their hobbies, if you will, that they have parlayed into some extra cash for a date night with the SO; or paying for hockey for their munchkins; or as is the case here in my hometown…money to see you through because you or your SO have lost your main source of income.

So keep practicing your craft whatever it may be…

For as it’s also been said…

Practice does make perfect…
