More and more, it feels like I’m doing a really bad impersonation of myself.

“We can spend our lives letting the world tell us who we are. Sane or insane. Saints or sex addicts. Heroes or victims. Letting history tell us how good or bad we are. Letting our past decide our future. Or we can decide for ourselves. And maybe it’s our job to invent something better.”—Chuck Palahniuk (Choke)

I’m on a mission to save myself from becoming a zombie, so I’ve come up with a “GAME CHANGING PLAN”. My last game changer involved me moving down to Florida, but as they say “The grass is always greener, but if you suck, everything looks like shit,” or something. This time I’ve harnessed my need to control situations and make lists into a no fail solution. Every two weeks for a total of 20 weeks I am going to tackle a new trait I want to master. I’ll also be interviewing my friends and family who I admire for integrating the trait into their life (and are also pretty awesome). Oh, and books! I’ll read a book or two on the theme, because I’m under the pool of thinking that every great idea has already been thought of; and I love to read.

Up first,  I try to start eating well, and stop thinking that frosting and marshmallow fluff counts as a legitimate meal.

Let me know any input you have, or if you have ever attempted something along these lines. Oh, and stay tuned.

    I am a big fan of “game changers” and I am all for introspection and trying to better yourself.

    Funny thing about making changes….some people don’t really want you to change. Maybe we just call it upgrades instead???

    I will most definitely stay tuned!
