Or something. I DON’T KNOW. Yes, I am (own it, self!).
I’m trying Jen, I’m really trying.
Jen. Jen Sincero. She’s the author of You Are A Badass, the self-help book I just finished reading.
It was given to me by my wonderful, adventurous friend Coco as a graduation gift. She’s really wonderful, did I say that already?
For those of you who don’t like to read, this could be the book for you. For those of you who like to read, this is going to be a quick read for you. She’s funny and explicit. She makes lists and there are occasional step-by-step instructions. Every chapter has a story and every chapter has a call-to-action.
Here are a couple of quotes that I found interesting/relatable/funny/etc:
Become one of your die-hard fans.
When we’re happy and all in love with ourselves, we can’t be bothered with the bullshit (our own or other people’s).
Pay attention to your motivations (be honest). Practice coming from a place of integrity and you will be victorious.
Doubt is resistance, faith is surrender. Worry is resistance, joy is surrender. Control is resistance, allowing is surrender.
Yes, I know what it sounds like…but don’t kick it ’til you’ve tried it. SIDEBAR: I realized that I took shit annotations in my book. Oh well. Many of the things that she brings up in the book hit me right in the chest. It rang true, I am aware, and yet I still doubt myself. But I can tell you that I’m working on it. I took one giant step, going toward the direction of badassery- I invested in myself and in this blog.
If you haven’t noticed, look at the address bar. What does it say? Does it say “thutexas.wordpress.com?” Because it shouldn’t! Although WordPress did tell me that it might not work for some of y’all in the first 72 hours.
ANYWAY, I registered my own domain name!! It’s officially thutexas.com! Go ahead and type it into the address bar, it should work. If not, try again in 3 days.
That’s all I wanted to say in this post. I’m hopped up on the coffee, I just finished the book, and I just bought this domain name- so I wrote this post.
How I’m feeling: I’m feeling great and a little shaky.
Where I want to go: I think I’m going in the right direction.
What I’m doing: I don’t know what I’m doing, and I’m okay with that.
thutexas.com. It’s real.
