A Bee's Sting...

June 18, 2010...

Have you ever been stung by a bee?

Those of us that have definitely know that this little insect can
certainly carry quite the big-time "OUCH!". I was reminded today
of that ouch feeling. Except it wasn't a bee. And it wasn't physical.

It was a mental sting.

I'm one of those people that have a hard time focusing on the lyrics of entire songs. I start out listening to the words closely, but it seems before long, I am captivated by an idea or phrase sparked by the singer. It happened recently.

I was listening to a song by Natasha Bedingfield called Unwritten. I can't even begin to tell you what the song is about, but I can tell you that single word sent my brain spinning.

Throw Yourself A "Forgiveness Line"

June 14, 2010...

Living with excellence everyday is hard work. I'm not going to say it's impossible, and that you should give up on trying, but I am going to say throw yourself a "forgiveness line" when you have a mediocre day.

Or to be more blunt...forgive yourself when you screw up.

Why choose to feel so bad about yourself that you let one bad day potentially rub off onto a second day, and possibly turn that one, too, into a crummy day?

That happens.

That Little Voice

June 13, 2010...

Do you know the "small voice?"

You know, the one in your brain that tries to convince you that it's
okay to put it on cruise control for the rest of the day and take it

"Go deserve it!"

"You don't need to exercise today! You did it last week!" 

The small voice can wield a bit of power over my actions, too, and
although it always sounds convincing, it's not REALLY what I want in the
long run.
