Week 7

Week seven has arrived. Showing up like a lucky roll of the dice across a soft felt table...  You're alive! LUCKY SEVENS!

Time to stand up, walk over to your 4K Weeks poster, and fill in the next square.


The subject line this week is from one of my favorite vintage meme videos of all time... It almost feels like it is from an alternate universe, and I suppose it kind of does... the early 80's.

Enjoy: Hello, my name is Spenc-ahhh!  at 15 seconds in, when they come at you like a 5-headed spider... vintage gold! 

Ok... enough with the distractions... on to the serious business...

This Week's Quote

"I'm not afraid of storms, for I'm learning how to sail my ship." -Louisa May Alcott

The difference between terror and exhilaration is often just whether you are standing on your heels or your toes. The same experience can be vastly different just based on your attitude.

The perspective shift that this quote asks you to make is huge.  Am I miserably cold and wet, or am I out here learning how to sail my ship?  Same situation, same conditions, same person, different mindset.

Smooth seas don't make skilled sailors.

So... if you are struggling right now, grab the struggle with both arms in a giant bear hug, and kiss it on the mouth. Today's struggle is tomorrow's skilled YOU.  

Now...do today's YOU a favor. Step out onto the deck, in the dangerously cold rain, with sea spray splashing you in the face, and with a smile say:

"What a beautiful day to learn to sail!"
