10 Easy Steps from Deadly Dull to Flat-Out Fascinating

Do you ever feel like you just need a kick in the pants? Like you're sort of going through the motions but nothing really important is happening in your life?? Like (even though other people don't seem to have picked up on it yet), you are boring yourself silly, and it's only a matter of time until you become the motivating agent for one long, community-wide yawn???

If so, you have an over-inflated sense of your own impact on the world at large. In other words, you're like me.

Not good, because I'm stuck in a rut just now. Up a creek without a paddle. Fresh out of anything that could possibly be considered fresh at all. In fact, I feel dull as dishwater lately, and the time has come (and passed, and come, and passed, and come again) to break out! What's more, I have a plan!! And it probably won't surprise you that I intend to share...

1. Add to my fun and funky red neck scarf a loverly purple one.

2. Keep listening to this song as I watch this video of Jason Mraz strolling through the streets of Paris.

3. Eat more fish=brain food and less crap=brain down the drain food.

4. Wear more earrings that delight the eye, dazzle the mind, and dangle two inches.

5. Get back in touch with my roots.

6. And my passion.

7. And even my muse.

8. Make time for this kind of fun with this kind of fun-maker.

9. Use this a little more.

10. And this a little less.

Care to join me? I'm willing to let you personalize #5, #6, and #7 to suit yourself, but the rest are completely non-negotiable...set in stone, as it were.

(Okay, okay...In the spirit of compromise, fellow participants may change the color on #1, if they must.)

There. Aren't I a delight to work with?


*footnote re. #8: You'll have to supply your own fun-maker. Some things I don't share.

okay, first of all, #10 MUST be negotiable b/c we need documentation of your fun! second of all, definately need to join my red lips revolution. i quote myself, "wear read lipstick. a lot." notice those are two sentences please. it gives it much more emphasis with two separate sentences. it's cold and windy in vegas. my flip flops are lonely in the closet.i am determined to get out and about!

Please, please, please rethink #10!
Seriously, you inspire me more than you know, and if you do less of "this", I will miss you. And, I look forward to your alliteration, it makes me smile...a lot, and big.
Ok, fine, I respect your plan. But, I don't have to like it!
