Learning To Love Logistics And The Freedom Of Getting Your Shit Together


While I sometimes find filling out paperwork oddly soothing, I have a tendency to be just one signature or one form away from getting the job done. (E.g., I’m almost 100% Kate Northrup Watts except for my driver’s license because, really, who likes going to the DMV?)

Chesty Morgan And The Angry Elbow

The other day driving to my PT (physical therapy) appointment I was thinking about how Dr. Jeri Hinman had sweetly instructed me to “lead with my heart.”  (If you read last month’s story you know that my elbow pain is related to my shoulders rolling forward to hide my boobs in Jr. High.)  I told Dr. Jeri I was thinking about the boobs-out-posture when I remembered a burlesque artist, born in 1928.  Her stage name was “Chesty Morgan.” She was a staunch feminist, with a 73” bustline weighing 24 lbs.!

The problem is, if we are not motivated to take the advice, nothing happens. We just stay exactly where we are. I know for me, I have only scratched the surface of doing the things I know will take me where I want to be. I've added this photo "stress ends here" because not being who you want to be is stressful. You may not notice the stress directly but when you get on the road to being who you truly want to be, you will notice that you feel lighter and healthier at some level.

So how do we foster motivation to take the advice we know will take us to who we want to be? Well, here is a little more "advice" ;).

How To Take Care Of Yourself When Everything Is Up In The Air

How to take care of yourself when everything is up in the air by Jennifer Louden

My post on How to Live When Everything is Up In the Air struck a resonant cord with so many readers.

Body Appreciation Day!

love your body

I know at times it’s tough to appreciate your body for its true brilliance and how much it does it for you.

You may have concerns about how it looks, or you may not like how it performs in certain situations or possibly not like it because of pain you feel from living in it.
