Only The Best Believe

Believe in spite of fear

“I’m good enough, I’m smart enough, and gosh darn it, (love that Oxford comma) people like me.” Those are the immortal words of SNL’s Stuart Smalley. He was pretty much a goofball, but he was onto something about what we believe.

You see, Bro Montana, the key to the game of life and being happy is to believe it’s possible. So many people go around thinking that their lives are crumbling around them, but in all actuality it’s mindset. They believe that when the going gets tough, they get going…out the door, down the street to have a drink at the local bar.

So the belief is the key, but how do you make it? Can’t you just magically start believing in yourself? Maybe you can go to your local hardware store and get it made? (Ok bad joke sorry about that, my bad)

Believe in a way

Welp, as we learned from Stuart Smalley in late 90’s as well as many successful people after him, it comes with practice. When you practice affirmations, then believe, you will find that you’ll have the confidence to take on new challenges. You’ll force yourself to think outside the box and open yourself up to forming creative solutions.

Believe and (just about) everything is possible.

Jerry “can even fly” Washington

P.S. Yup fly! I believed and I did it. I just thought real hard, reached behind me and poof.  Yup! I pulled out my wallet and bought an airline ticket (told you I could fly). Ha! Seriously though, when you believe in your own abilities it opens up a world of possibilities. If you want to talk more about it, leave a comment below, or contact me here. Because you’re good enough, smart enough, and gosh darn it people like you. Talk soon…

To Kill A Whatever

Feeling like Atticus Finch right now                                                                                                                .
Ready to kill this damn bird that keeps
 
Squawking outside my window at
 
3:30 in the morning.
 
 
Ok, just had to get that off my chest
.
Hope you had a good Easter weekend
 
Mine was fun, but here we go again
 
Back to the grind.
 
 
I’d like to talk to you today about said grind.
 
Sometimes we all feel like that bird.
 
Singing our hearts out, putting in time
 
Sometimes at unGodly hours.
 
With absolutely no appreciation
 
(I hope no one wants to kill you though)
 
 
I know it can be hard, but let’s consider this.
 
For every bird that makes his presence known
 
There is a bird watcher out there looking for him.
 
 
In other words, You may not know it
. 
But your hard work is being watched.
.
It may not be watched every moment of the day
.
But believe me, someone is paying attention.
 
 
I’ll leave you with this today.
 
If you ever think to yourself
 
“Fuck am I doing this for?”
 
Just remember there is someone out there
 
That thinks your song is beautiful.
 
Just don’t come around my house singing
 
That mess at 3:30AM on a weekday!!!!
