I Can’t Go For (That)Posted: June 12, 2013
We are all apprentices in a craft where no one ever becomes a master-
Remember those New Year’s resolutions you made under the best intentions to run a marathon this summer, loose a couple extra pounds, become less attached to technology, whatever?!?
I can’t remember them either, so we’re cool
Before we get too far along, start traveling sideways and I start doling out advice about “life“. The tone of this post is to bring to light an idea(s) to help you celebrate yourself this summer and the remainder of the year. Far too often we celebrate finishing a big race, blossoming on the mat, that we often overlook who got us there in the first place …
Take a moment this weekend to sit down, with an actual pen, a few pages of organic-renewable-locally sourced paper, a pint of Wynkoop Rocky Mountaion Oyster Stout, to write yourself a letter. Dated one year in advance for good measure. I can personally say that this exercise is best done after a recent success or “pat on the back” moment in your life. Imagine looking back a year from now, from a place of having achieved your most important goal this year. Don’t hold back while you pen your letter either. Thank your present self, give some tips, share a few failures and what you did right when things got tough. Savor this moment …
My resolution this year was not to write any self-serving advice posts … Take care and be well today!
