12 Things I Don’t Give A Sh*t About Anymore

Letting go quote.jpg

We hang on to a ton of “junk” that no longer fits our life. But once we have the courage to clean house, life gets a lot lighter and leaner.

The song “Let It Go” from the movie FROZEN should be the anthem of every adult. All the problems and worries that kept us awake at night as younger people are replaced by hot flashes and restless leg syndrome.

Which I wish would just GO.

Facing mid-life makes you take stock. What’s really important as you slide down the other side of the mountain? You’d better figure it out because…

The ride gets faster.

Time whizzes by.

Gravity works against you.

What are you ready to let go?

Guardian Angel Wanted: Must Be Willing To Take On One Hot Mess

Guardian Angel Quote Funny

Whether you believe in Guardian Angels or not, at some point in life you’ll have screwed up and wish you had one sitting on your shoulder.

Your Guardian Angel is that quiet, soft, knowing presence who will:

Take the fall.

Dry the tears.

Pick up the pieces.

Hold your hand.

Reassure your heart.

Restore your faith.

Cushion the blows.

Inspire forward motion.

Mine better arrive with a good sense of humor, because sometimes even the Devil on my shoulder whispers: “What the fuck were you thinking?”

If you don’t need a Guardian Angel today, be one to somebody who does.

BE F♥CKING AWESOME TODAY! (and every day)

Gauardian Angel Quotes Funny

6 Signs That You’re Pissing Your Life Away and 6 Ways To Stop It Now.

Do what you love. Period.

How to stop wasting time and make the time to do what you love.

Is this your problem?

“I can’t find time to do what I love.”

Sorry to be harsh, but here’s the answer: Balderdash!

It may be semantics, but change “find” to “make” and we have a new ballgame people.

The timeline in life is only so long, and there’s no telling how many years we get to play the game. So don’t spend it sitting on the bench, wishing, hoping, dreaming, that someday you’ll get to play ball, while watching those around swing for the fences.

This game of life allows the choice to do something that excites us and fulfills us during the time we’ve been granted. Best of all, exploring what we love to do offers the potential to leave the world a slightly better place for our passing through it.

See? Doing what you love benefits us all!

The Domino Effect On Your Life Decisions

The Domino Effect. Inspirational quote.

A domino effect or chain reaction is the cumulative effect produced when one event sets off a chain of similar events

How something so small creates great results

It starts as something really small. Barely a whisper. The energy so insignificant that the event passes by the most astute observer.

But it’s that one little thing, one decision, that triggers the next thing and the next, until your life resembles a set of toppled dominoes.

This is good, or bad news, depending on the intent of the what has set the first domino in motion.

In the “good” case, a slight tap creates a whirlwind of positive energy. A first date leads to marriage. A pop-up kiosk becomes a chain of profitable retail stores.

Dig Yourself Out Of A Rut (No Shovel Required)

 7 practical things to do RIGHT NOW to get out of a rut.

7 practical things you can do RIGHT NOW to dig yourself out of a rut.

We’re optimistic humans as long as things are going our way.

In the morning, after a sound sleep, we high-five the fellow caffeine depleted in line. “Have a great day!” we say and skip off to work.

The plumber who scheduled to snake the toilet at 8 a.m. arrived at 7:50 IN THE MORNING.

Shoot, you can’t believe how great things are going.

Then something changes.

How To Be Perfectly “Flawsome”


Is this preaching to the choir or am I the only perfectly flawed individual on the planet?

Most of the people in my circle are like me, just trying to make it from Point A to Point B without losing their minds completely. Some days it’s a breeze and other days it’s a royal cluster fuck.

And why?

Because we’re so hard on ourselves.

We play this record over and over in our heads. That everything we say and do must be perfect and shiny and worthy. When we can’t live up to that (which is NEVER) we throw up our hands (or just throw up!) and decide there’s something seriously wrong with us.

Proof That You Are Unique

Need an outwardly sign that you’re special? No, we’re not going to ask your mama. After all she’s biased.

Growing up, my grandmother’s Christmas tree was decorated with ornaments my father had made as a kid. See? Maternal pride. It’s sweet but you need to do this on your own.

Fingerprints tell the world that nobody else on the planet is exactly like you. Think about how crazy that is.

Go forward. Boldly. Live that truth.

Show us your uniqueness.

Don’t be selfish and hide it. Share your talents and gifts.

And okay, go ahead and show us the stuff you made as a kid. Because that’s still fun.

BE F*CKING AWESOME TODAY! (and every day)

What Did You Worry About A Year Ago Today?


What are you worried about today? Is it something a year from now you’ll remember?

Why can’t we just be confident that whatever we’re doing RIGHT NOW is perfect for us. That would make the day go smoothly, wouldn’t it? But, alas, as someone told me, “worry gives me something to do when I don’t know what to do.”

The source of your worry

Maybe you feel as if you’re a natural born worrier.  Always seen the doom and gloom in every little thing, even before it happened. Put worry above action.

How To Achieve Improvement Over Perfection

Improvement over perfection graphic|perfectionism||Stephanie DelTorchio

Perfectionism is the rarest of all Earthly minerals — let’s call it “Unobtainium.” Because it doesn’t exist.
Every once in a while we get this hair brain idea that our life needs to be picture perfect. Our body. Our mind. Our kids. Our job. Our house.

Then when we can’t measure up to all the pretty people and pictures we see around us, we feel like a failure. Again.

Don’t be paralyzed by the perception of perfection.

I’ll bet Martha Stewart and Tim Gunn wake up with bed hair too.

The more “obtainable” and less weary version of perfectionism is, drum roll… improvement. That’s all. Just try to do better than you did the day before. Don’t you feel the relief to be all and do all wash away?

Before you go all OCD on me and organize the spice rack in alphabetical order, answer this question: What, or who, is driving you to be perfect?

Look in the mirror, my friend, and stop being so hard on yourself.

Chicken Or Fish?


All you care to eat buffets are popular for a reason. There’s so much to choose from.  Your only limit is the amount of food you can pile on the plate. Even that’s not a problem: there are stacks of extra clean plates waiting for you.

Buffets strip away the need for menu considerations and restrictions, like one starch and one vegetable. Your fork stroke will not be interrupted by hovering waitstaff. You’re completely in charge of your destiny. Er, meal.

Want a slice of this? A spoonful of that? No problem. Unzip your pants and have both. Variety is the spice of life, right?

Life is an abundant buffet too. With less calories. But just as much indigestion when you pile on too much.

From the minute you can think for yourself, temptation to decide this over that is on. When you can’t decide, you can choose to say yes, and add it to your plate.

It’s easy to do.

And it works for a long time.
