Sack Up.

Today I decided something important. Yeah, yeah, yeah - by now you're used to me deciding important things on a monthly (even daily) basis. But that doesn't diminish their importance. The truth is, I have a lot of important decisions to make.

Well, I'm not going to be afraid to make them any longer. This is the year that I finally sack up.

Yeah, I know, that's a physical/anatomical impossibility. So, for the purposes of this purposelessness, think of it theoretically. I am going to get ballsy for once in my life. Or, better yet, for life. I'm going to do everything I ever wanted to do,be everyone I wanted to be, but was too scared or intimidated or uneducated or daunted or lazy to try. And we're not just talking about doing a half Ironman and applying to doctoral programs.

Oh, no.

This includes but is not limited to: skydiving, sailing, deep sea fishing, traveling or even moving halfway across the world - alone, if need be -keeping my mouth shut when I am tempted to speak, being more decisive, speaking up for myself when I am tempted to let people bully me, going to more sporting events, going to more concerts, staying up later, training harder, volunteering more, getting up earlier, doing nothing more often, and not being so g'd nice all the f*%$ time. I'm going to ask for what I need, and I'm going to get it, dammit. I'm going to live dangerously every day. (Well . . . maybe I draw the line at attempting human Frogger on I-4.)

The sack-up has officially begun.

It's never to late to be the person you've always wanted to be. What have you done today to live dangerously?

5 tidbits of wizdom:

Living on the edge has quiet a bit of appeal. My danger for today: calling my boss out for being a liar. Promising one thing and then telling me something completely different a day later. With the holiday right around the corner it is certainly living on the edge;)

I'm scared.

I'm just going to sit in my little corner with my blankie and wait to see how this all turns out.

Is this thing on???

Otherwise I'll have to conclude that your risk seeking turned into bad reality tv...
