I May Not Have Much…

I unfortunately don’t have much for you today. 🙁 I have been hard at work trying to get this gym ready. I appreciate you checking in, however so I won’t leave you empty-handed…Let’s talk about happiness.

Today I got in my TRX suspension trainers. I was so excited at first I was jumping up and down and yelling about how I wanted to try them out right now! (They’re hanging from my door as we speak) But the thing is that right after I hung them up and did a few exercises, the excitement died down. Like way down.

And that’s what I want you to think about today. All our lives many of us search for the next thing to make you happy, but every time you get it, you’re sadly disappointed that it doesn’t give you the everlasting happiness you thought it would bring.

I don’t about you, but I almost feel worse after I get something that I’ve been chomping at the bit to acquire. Before we part ways today, I want you to consider this. There is a man under a bridge right now that’s happier with less. Of course that’s probably a bit nuanced, but the point’s still valid.

Less is more.

P.S. I hate to write like this on the fly, but sometimes it turns out to be my best work. If you’ve been tuning in, leave a comment below and tell me what you think. And answer this question while you’re at it. What is the present that you most remember receiving in your life. As for me, it was a Nintendo in 1989 and I still have most of the games. Talk soon…

Big A$% Boats!

Ok so I’ve gotta quick share for you today.

 

I’m on a boat!

 

Ha! Yeah, I’m staying a few days on an actual boat in the Bahamas. I say this not to brag (ok maybe a little), but to inform you of how your hard work can pay off.

 

But hold up there brosephine! If you know me, you know that I’m not the type to be riding around in luxury vehicles and hanging out on boats with my vacation money. In fact, I can’t even say that I’ve saved up enough money to cover half these opportunities that I’ve been so fortunate to experience.

 

So how did I do it?

 

Easy….

 

I just asked.

 

I unfortunately, don’t have a lot of time to completely fill you in on HOW you can do it. But I know you don’t have to just be a fitness pro to do what I’m currently doing now. So if you’re interested in finding out how you can live the good life without having to be concerned with your money, or if you’ll ever be able to afford any type of luxury in your life, click below to join the conversation in my private Facebook group.

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!!!!
