If you are stuck, listen up…

Inspiring.  Catchy thump, thump, thump rhythmic cadence.  Hypnotic.  Worthy 3 minute clip.  A few of my favorite excerpts.

“This is an invocation for anyone who hasn’t begun to start, who is stuck between 0 and 1”

“Let me think about the people I care about the most.  Like when they fail or disappoint me, I still love them, I still give them chances, and I still see the best in them.  Let me extend the same generosity to myself.

“If I catch myself wearing a tutu – 2FAT, 2LATE, 2OLD, let me shake it off like…”

“Let me be not so vain to think that I am the sole author of my victories and a victim of my defeats…”

“Let me remember that the unintended meaning that people project on to what I do is neither my fault or something I can take credit for.”

“Let me not think of my work only as a stepping stone to something else.  And if it is, let me be fascinated with the shape of the stone.”

“There’s no need to sharpen my pencils anymore; my pencils are sharp enough. Even the dull ones will make a mark.”

“And God let me enjoy this.  Life isn’t just a sequence of waiting for things to be done.

***Note some coarse language that may be offensive to certain readers.

  5. Awesome. Off to the gym now! Not inviting perfection there either ’cause you’re right about that guy. Thanks for help clicking the switch to ‘start’ (fortunately I think mine says ‘repeat’ ) this morning.

  11. Just the doing of the task is way more than sufficient a reward when I am at peace within myself and grateful for each moment, each breath.
