Well, it’s been a long time coming. I’ve been working on this most of the year but, as life happens, other things pop up. I wanted to create a place where I could put down thoughts, share experiences and maybe figure out a thing or two myself. In some ways, having the desire to create this space caused BIG change in my life. Im sure you’ve noticed the multiple things I do and then tweet about….; ). While I absolutely LOVE the many things I do, I started to notice that My Ass Was Tired….and a little saggy which is ANOTHER reason why the change had to happen. I was faced with the LAW of DIMINISHING RETURNS. Basically, I had to reorganize EVERYTHING!!! I mean, EVERYTHING! And Im so glad I did!
First and foremost, I took a hard look at myself. Was I happy? Truly happy? Was I looking forward everyday to making my dreams happen? When I broke down all the components, yes. I love my family. I love my work. I love feeling fit and healthy. But, because I was doing so much, without balance, it was kind of a drag and everything suffered just a bit. Was that good enough, I asked myself. Do I want to give my family just enough or all I got? Do I want to give MYSELF an average experience of life or the BEST it has to offer?
So, off I went…In search of HEALTH….HEALING. I rejoined my meditation practice after at least a decade off. Boy, what a difference this makes. I only use the word Asshole once a day rather than 10 times a day like I used to. I have kept up with the word FUCK though because it makes me laugh. : ). I decided squats and pushup were worth it because I like the results. I dont like to jump up and down and have too many of my body parts following me. So, my ass, arms and stomach mostly stay in place now. I enrolled in a business course that has hugely changed how I approach what I do. Being the CFO of Open Book and The Sabatino Family, I needed new skills….and Im getting them! It’s made a huge difference in my stress levels which were adequately being helped by the above meditating…..and wine. But the wine wasnt helping my ass so new skills were a must! (I still enjoy my grape but only to the point that its kind to my tush). I also have a life coach. She’s cheaper then a therapist and has a no BULLSHIT rule. Me like her….. I’ve hired new people to work within Open Book and we are gearing up for Venice.
Venice Season 5 is coming! Now that I’ve opened up my time and found balance, I couldn’t be more excited about working on Venice. I love the script. I love the cast. I love the crew. Cant wait to see them all again! And, yes, all your questions will be answered this season! ; )
Go Kick Some Ass!!! I believe in YOU!
*Grateful to YOU ALL!!!
