21 Days – “Reality”

Summer is here. The heat is here. The AC is on. And I definitely have lost my mind. Why? Because I went to the gym…in the heat. The gym which is not properly ventilated. Woe is me. Though I am now comfortable nestled into bed, the post-gym scene was slightly chaotic/traumatic.  It included sticking my face in the freezer and promptly hurling myself into the pool. Needless to say, today I wished I had a letter from my future self. But that won’t happen anytime soon. So today I’m writing a letter TO my future self (although it also works for my past and present self as well).

And now on to the letter…

Dear past/present/future self,

ou may or may not be old and gray now but I bring you a few messages from your youth. Like a time capsule, these are the top 10 things you should be remembering now matter where or when you’re reading this.

  • There is always room for dessert chocolate
  • Keep calm and have a Harry Potter marathon
  • Always travel with an umbrella
  • Keep your friends close and enemies FAR far away
  • When in doubt, take a child’s advice because they undoubtedly have the answer
  • Look where you’re walking … and wear shoes in the basement at all times
  • Music: play it, listen to it, live it
  • Do something absolutely ridiculous at least once a month
  • Keep traveling until you can’t travel any more!!
  • Put your family first and you will always SMILE 🙂

Now go and make amazing things happen. Because it’s in you and don’t let anyone tell you anyone differently!!

A reality show

Yesterday I also completed another item off my list. With the help of my sister, I was in a reality show! Not anyone you’ve ever heard of. It’s not one I’ve ever heard of either. In fact, it’s completely and totally original. I haven’t gotten around to editing it yet and unfortunately I can’t upload a preview without either putting it on youtube first or getting a wordpress video upgrade but not to fear, I’ll figure something out. When I do you will all be the first to know. Coming soon to a computer near you (well…right in front of you).
