It’s something we hear perhaps too often at SCA for our liking. But something that’s actually well important. So last week I did it, big time, for realsies, mega-started all over again. Everything I’ve done until now I chucked away and split up with my partner.
WHAT WERE YOU THINKING? I know it sounds mad, I know it does, I know. But I did it and now it’s too late to go back, what’s done is done and I’ve kinda learnt loads so it’s ok. Don’t worry about me. I’m fine.
So I’m back to square one. Wait, didn’t I just say I learnt loads? Well I did. Let me share some of that with you. First of all, doing scary things is like waxing. Don’t do it slowly and drag it out. It’s soooooo painful if you do it that way. Grab your hairs (fears) and tear them out as fast as possible. You’re welcome, you smooth, hairless (fearless) little thing.
And then you’ve done something really scary, right, and you’re like ohmygodwhathaveIdonethisisterrifyingI’manidiotohmygod. Don’t be like that. Don’t be that guy or gal. See the opportunity. Positive mental attitude or mental breakdown. It’s a choice. You have a choice. Hint: choose positive mental attitude.
But, and it’s a big but, try to channel that fear. Wait. This is kind of the same point. Turn that fear into positivity yada yada but there’s more. I don’t know about you but when I get scared/tired it makes me kind of mental. I get twitchy and excited and talk too much. Instead of laughing like a maniac and making up dance routines to Blazin Squad put a pen in your hand. I’ve found that if I set deadlines and goals and that, I have all this energy and fear, that means when my alarm goes off at 6:30 I’m so terrified I can’t go back sleep. I know that sounds unhealthy but it’s kinda working for me so I’m gonna run with it.
So somehow turning my life upside-down has motivated me to get my arse in gear and I’m actually being well productive, having some giggles, and (I mean it’s probably better to have someone else judge this) making some fun fun fun stuff.
Here’s to doing scary, idiotic, non-sensical stuff that terrifies you so much you have to sort it out or you’re screwed.
