Tip of the Week

Roll with the punches! Life is gonna smack you right in the face when you don't expect it. If you're head's on straight, you're certainly gonna handle it just fine. Roll with it. Complain a little bit, and let it go.

Thirty Minute Monday

Got thirty minutes today? Sure you do! Maybe that thirty minutes happens to be available when you're driving. Well, how convenient. Today is the day to USE THOSE MINUTES. Here's the Thirty-Minute Monday, and it rocks: THROW A FIT.

Are you suffering from heartbreak? Cry it out. Get it all out. You have to hold yourself together every other single effing moment of the day. Allow yourself to go through the complete, entire spectrum of emotions. Where are you at the end of your commute? Still not over it? That's fine! Allow yourself to suffer, to heartbreak, to mess up your makeup but also kind of like how pink your cheeks are. It's okay to feel that way.

Cry it out with George Strait.

Pissed off that someone in your life treats you badly? As if you don't exist, aren't supposed to belong? Do you work your ace off tailoring your life to their needs? Do you go out of your way to be friendly and helpful, only to be blown off and then quickly lose motivation? Yell it out. Grip the steering wheel, roll down the music, blast the tunes, and remind yourself that you ARE better than you are being treated, and deserve to have your life the way you want it. You are the best.

Be pissed with the Beastie Boys.

Feeling moody? Is today just one of those dumb, ol' blue days when you are fully aware of the fact that maybe you weren't born with the best genetics, the quickest mind, the biggest bank account? Let's be moody. It's allowed. You are allowed to be this way--it is REAL, and it is happening now. This is how you feel, this is you.

Let's be moody with Elvis Presley.

Today is about allowing yourself to exorcise those emotions that need to get out. Yes, you may not free yourself from the terrors and situations that put your body into these intense physical states. Yes, you probably are going to feel them again. But, for right now, for this time, let it be okay. You are alone. You're driving. I mean, you're multi-tasking, right? :) Let it out. Later on today, look back at this time, and try to pinpoint why you are feeling a specific way. This is important. Once seeing the reason, you can then find how to fix it and whether or not you want to. Progression. Keep moving forward.
