I Hate to Admit it but...I'm So In LOVE!
I've got a girl crush on Shonda Rhimes!
The creative genius behind Grey's Anatomy, Scandal, Private Practice and How to Get Away with Murder, among other things. Shonda has single handily made Thursday's one of my favorite days of the week for the past five years.
July is a self-development month for me, and I had to pick a mentor/BFF that inspires me to dream big and of course I had to pick Shonda.
Girl Crush Reason #1: “I am not lucky. You know what I am? I am smart, I am talented, I take advantage of the opportunities that come my way and I work really, really hard. Don’t call me lucky. Call me a badass" - Queen Rhimes.
Shonda is a wife, mother of 3, and currently working on four-night time drama's, while I can hardly find the time to work 45 hours, do laundry, write and still workout.
She has mastered juggling her work and family life.
Girl Crush reason #2: She believes wine and dance parties solves problems!
She's a modern day superwomen!
"I'm a liar. And I don't care who knows it" is the opening line to the book...Year of Yes!
How can you not love her?
Girl Crush reason #3: She is a liar. And her imagination creates the most kick-ass storylines.
In the Year of Yes, Rhimes discusses how she finally stepped out of her comfort zone and began to say YES to opportunities that once frightened her.
"If I don't poke my head out of my shell and show people who I am, all anyone will ever think I am is my shell” -Year of Yes: How to Dance It Out, Stand In the Sun and Be Your Own Person.
Side note: I'm not even half way finished with my New Years Resolutions, and there are only 180 days left in the year!
I was feeling lost in a pool of unfinished tasks and the "real" world!
But somehow, after reading a few chapters, I decided to just be happier and not worry about what needs to get done.
Sometimes we spend so much time worrying about what needs to get done, that ultimately NOTHING GETS DONE!
I'm working on getting shit done!
I can thank Shonda for inspiring me to put me on big girl panties and make shit happen.
It does not matter your current circumstances; you can always prevail.
If she can do it...so can I! And SO CAN YOU!!
I threw out my Resolutions, and I'm starting from starch! I have a set of July Goals that I am ready to SMASH!! I've narrowed down my to-do list and have created an error proof plan to finish everything by August 1st. I will let you know how well the system works soon enough.
My priorities are in alignment with my desires, and I've never been more excited.
Thanks to Shonda I will say YES more and dance it out every chance I get.
I have some new manifesting tricks up my sleeve, and I can see amazing things happening for me.
“Happiness comes from living as you need to, as you want to. As your inner voice tells you to. Happiness comes from being who you actually are instead of who you think you are supposed to be” -Year of Yes: How to Dance It Out, Stand In the Sun and Be Your Own Person.
So now I ask you:
What will you do with the remaining 180 days?
Will you smash your goals and create a mountain of success?
Or will be fall timid to your negative thinking?
