That’s the point of this video. Be okay failing and love yourself afterwards. It’s my first video, so be gentle.
“Time spent playing minus time spent working.” Can’t argue with science.
It’s the long weekend! The dreaded long weekend.
You see, for people with noisy minds, it’s hard to shut them off. In fact, they don’t shut off. Brains don’t shut off. Which is a good thing, in the grand scheme of staying alive, but not great if you’re the kind of person who listens to all of the constant thoughts. And if you’re reading this blog, I assume you are that kind of person.
I remember as a kid thinking 40 is like almost dead. And now that I’m 40, I realize I’m like super close to being dead. But at 40, I don’t care.
Got a chance to chat with Tim JP Collins for The Anxiety Podcast.
Anxiety podcast?! How do you get people to agree to be on it?
During a recent TV interview about improv helping with anxiety, the reporter asked/told me, “But you’re not saying this is a cure, it’s just another thing you can do as therapy. It’s a way to cope.”
I hate the word cope. Coping. Barf.
I should write a Christmas post. I should tell all my friends how wonderful they are, and that if the people around you are what make up your personality, thank you for being so wonderful because I’m really happy with life.
I was inspired to write this post when I realized I do not give good email. And when I say realize, I mean I was told. By several people. With love, though. I think. How come do you not be good email? Amazing question!
Positive Thinking: Cameron, post this and you might help people. Or get a million likes. Or hits. Or whatever happens in blog world to let you know you’re worth something.
Realistic Expectation: Cameron, probably very few people will read this, and chances are you’ve said this stuff before and it’s not that helpful. And you smell.
“Hockey’s a game and sometimes you just have to go play. Have a little fun with it and chase the puck and do things. We did that and I think our speed showed up. I think some talent showed up and we made some plays and fortunately for us, we won the hockey game. But I think that’s what I would like to see our team be – our players have to have some fun. It’s a game. We have to have some fun playing the game.”
- Bryan Murray, General Manager of a PROFESSIONAL hockey team
Thank you Thanksgiving, for reminding me to be thankful for things.
I was always told my fear of flying was irrational. Do you know the chances of a plane crashing? Like, a million to one. You’re crazy for having that fear and you shouldn’t have it. Logically I agreed with them. It was a stupid fear and I was stupid for having it. I felt embarrassed for having such a non-real fear. But I still had it.
I used to be an asshole. Now I know there are people out there from my past who are thinking, “I bet you’re still an asshole.” But I also know there are people who know me now that are surprised (hopefully).
We’ve all been in arguments that go on so long that someone finally chuckles, “What were we fighting about again?” Then the other person chuckles. You chuckle together and almost make up, until one of you remembers and starts the fight again.
The problem with problems is that even if you take the time and effort to fix each and every one of them, there’ll be others to replace them. Luckily they all have one thing in common: the feeling of stress.
I went on the Carla Collins radio show!
A pioneer in research on play, Stuart Brown says humor, games, roughhousing, flirtation and fantasy are more than just fun.
Scientific proof that if you don't take these workshops, you'll go all crazy and stuff.
"In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing."- Theodore Roosevelt
I'd saying doing it wrong is just as good as doing it right. If anything, doing it wrong takes more courage. But still a good one, Teddy.
