Happy New Year and Welcome to Season 3!!!!! Your favorite gals at How To Do Life are back with a fresh new season full of hope and possibility. There’s a new intro and new cover art and we are divas who livestream now. It’s the perfect time to get on board, no prerequisites required.
2021 tried hard to hold on to 2020 throughout its first week with us. Chryssy and Heather are sure we can break free. Chryssy spoke to the universe on our collective behalf, and we learned it’s ok the be fragile. This was a tough pill to swallow, but it’s true, friends. Sometimes we are not strong. And that’s ok. Never fear – the only way out is up! And we are climbing.
We celebrate the Browns beating the Steelers. This has been the high point of 2021 so far.
Chryssy shares with us an article about the bullshit of mindfulness in a pandemic. Here it is: https://www.economist.com/1843/2020/11/27/mindfulness-is-useless-in-a-pandemic
No, what we need now isn’t mindfulness, it’s hope. Chryssy recommends you go listen to Andra Day sing “Rise Up” if you need a boost. Be gentle with each other right now, please.
But also realize, friends, that extending ourselves a whole year of “grace” may have meant we slacked. It may have meant we allowed ourselves not to reach out goals. We gave ourselves permission to quit our routines, or gain weight, or not connect. Because 2020.
And that’s fine. For a minute. But, it’s time. It’s time, people. That “grace period” can’t last forever. Make yourself some goals and get off your ass and after them. Let’s get into it.
Until next time.
