Anyone else riding the post-holidays struggle bus? It’s bitter cold in NYC, I’m feeling discouraged that we have so much of winter ahead, and my mind has been racing about the future. Who else needs a little kick-in-the-ass-pep-talk from no-bull-shitter Jen Sincero of You are a Badass?
It never ceases to amaze me the precious time we spend chasing the squirrels around our brains, playing out our dramas, worrying about unwanted facial hair, seeking adoration, justifying our actions, complaining about slow Internet connections, dissecting the lives of idiots, when we are sitting in the middle of a full-blown miracle that is happening right here, right now.
We’re on a planet that somehow knows how to rotate on its axis and follow a defined path while it hurtles through space! Our hearts beat! We can see! We have love, laughter, language, living rooms, computers, compassion, cars, fire, fingernails, flowers, music, medicine, mountains, muffins! We live in a limitless universe overflowing with miracles!
Okay, Jen — okay! Here’s to living rooms and muffins. I’ll add: cheese, beaches, burgers, baths, dog ears, dancing, stars, moms, wine, weekends, orgasms. And goats in pajamas. 🙂
P.S. A Monday pep-talk.
