Alrighty then. Well I made it. Today was the first time in a feck of a long time that the first thing I DIDN’T do, when I crawled out of bed, was check FB. My logic for this has always been, to check-in on what my family and friends were doing, half a world away. I gotta say, my day went way more smoothly. One thing I noticed, by not checking in on the FB world, is that I didn’t carry any ‘Facebook weight’ in my head. Do you know what I’m talking about? You click on FB, to see what your friends are doing, then you see a status, or a comment, that annoys the fuck out of you. Suddenly that thought occupies prime-time real-estate in your head and it bugs you. Today, I had none of that. I gotta be honest though, on day one, I still have no idea of where this personal quest of mine, this YIFOF is going to lead. All I can say is (insert phoney spiritual voice here,) I know it’s my path and I know its the right thing to to.
I just recently read a really cool self-help book…don’t groan, hear me out. It’s called “You are a Badass” by Jen Sincero. I’ve read a few self help books in my time. While some are half-assed hokery, this is the real deal and Sincero writes in such a way that you’re guffawing out loud, nodding your head in agreement and wishing you could buy her coffee. Oh, and she drops the F-bomb plenty, which in my book makes her a stand-up dame. Plus she tell you you can achieve anything, that you are a badass. After finishing day one, I gotta tell you, I feel that it’s true.
