Someone else’s slogan

What do you say to yourself when you need a pep talk?

I’ve got a few different sayings for different situations.

Wake up = Up and at them!

Do the thing = Just f*cking do it.

Make the call = This is only 5 minutes of your entire life. JFDI.

Now that I think about it, JFDI is the main mantra I say to myself. It works. It also happens to be someone else’s slogan with a twist. Don’t tell them. I’ll let you know if I receive a cease and desist.

When I say it works, I mean it works most of the time. I’m a people pleaser who doesn’t know how to people please herself. This makes me constantly break my own boundaries. I wonder what that particular baggage looks like. I imagine a tiny case for accessories that explodes open when you barely touch the latch. This should be fun to work through.

This beautiful tree is what I see when I look out my living room windows. How lucky am I?
