Today I want to address a couple of common misconceptions.
Extraordinary living is not just for artists.
Yep, it’s true. You don’t need to understand Michelangelo’s methods for painting The Sistine Chapel or how to DIY your way out of any death defying situation, to be able to live extraordinarily.
Extraordinary living is not [...]Continue Reading →
Alright guys, goal setting time is upon us!
Resist the urge to go all hipster/ironic, or emo/anti everything, when it comes to goals. Yes, I know that only capitalistic robots who have been brainwashed by corporate America would even dream of doing something so cliche as setting goals that begin on January 1st (heaven forbid). [...]Continue Reading →
I once knew a girl who had a plan.
She had a plan because she had “Manifest Monday’s” with her best friend every week. This day would consist of them getting together and writing their own personal lists of things they wanted to see happen in their lives. Big or small, they’d write the [...]
I was recently asked the question…
“What do you want to be admired for?”
I had a lot of fun answering this question. You see, the questioner didn’t specify that you had to already be doing these things you want to be remembered for… just that it would be freaking amazing if people actually said [...]Continue Reading →
I’ve spent the last 2 years trying to decide what to do with my life.
And that doesn’t mean I just go through my normal day to day activities and hope the idea comes to me. That means I’ve spent hours and hours writing and brainstorming and breaking down ideas. Word associations, lists, rhetorical analysis. [...]Continue Reading →
I recently realized that our values went awry somewhere along the way.
We moved to a little place a block away from the beach in the most fun, entertaining neighborhood that I’ve ever known. We then proceeded to unpack. Work. Unpack. Think about going to the beach. Unpack. Work. Think about inviting new friends [...]
How are your friends?
I’m assuming you have fun together. If you’re a girl maybe you go dancing, shopping, spend long hours talking about relationship problems or your kids schooling. And if you’re a guy you… I don’t know… play sports and drink beer together? Is that what guys do? I’m mostly basing that on [...]Continue Reading →
Who you are, who you want to be like, and what you want… all that kind of info was on the tag sewn into your shirt when the stork dropped you off, right? That’s not how it worked for me, I was born into this world naked as a baby so I’ve been forced to [...]Continue Reading →
We all have haters… some of us have haters who are more hateful than the average, but we all have people who want to bag on what we’re doing or tell us the “right” way to run our lives. Haters are like vultures who gather around someone who is venturing out of the pack into [...]Continue Reading →
What?! You’re not me?! Really? Are you sure? I could’ve sworn…
Your definition for an extraordinary life is unique.
If everyone’s definitions were the same, it would just be called “ordinary living” and I definitely wouldn’t be wasting so many of my youthful years telling you about it (I have mountains to conquer and dragons [...]Continue Reading →
The yin and the yang. The black and the white. The light and the dark. Perez Hilton and Vin Diesel. Our world seems to keep it’s balance through opposites. And it’s no different when it comes to extraordinary words.
For every extraordinary word there is an anti-word… an “ordinary word”.
The ordinary word is the [...]Continue Reading →
Everyone has a single word that defines them.
At least that’s what Elizabeth Gilbert told me in “Eat, Pray, Love”. And the more I’ve thought about it, the more I’ve begun to believe her.
She begins explaining this concept by naming various cities and what their words are. For example, New York is ACHEIVE, Los [...]Continue Reading →
This blog is going to be epic. See, even the first sentence is pretty epic! I considered starting off humble or humorously self-deprecating in a lovable Liz Lemon sort of way, but I prefer to be honest. The fact is, I think we’re going to rock it up in here. Let’s just say, if this [...]Continue Reading →
