How to Choose Love

How to Choose Love

Have you ever seen one of those passive-aggressive Facebook fights?  You know the kind.  It’s where one of your friends does something offensive, then another one of your friends responds.  Neither of them talk directly to each other.  They just post vague status updates about the supposed infractions of the other person. It turns into this ridiculous mixture of horrible and hilarious.  The two people think they’re justified.  Everyone else thinks they’re pathetic.  Fact: It’s Not About You This week in the 631...

Internet Memes and Why They’re Dangerous (or why you should judge everyone)

Internet Memes and Why They’re Dangerous (or why you should judge everyone)

I saw a meme on Facebook this week that read, “A true friend doesn’t care when you’re broke, being a bitch, what you weigh, if your house is a mess, what you drive, about your past, or if your family is filled with crazy people.  They love you for who you are.  Repost if you have at least one true friend, they will know who they are.” I’ve heard so many variations of these phrases repeated among conversations with friends and family.  I see them reposted on Facebook, Twitter, and every other social media outlet...

Have You Waved Your Freak Flag Lately?

Have You Waved Your Freak Flag Lately?

Have You Waved Your Freak Flag Lately? “I guess that’s it then.” “Yeah, I guess it is.” I don’t know if it was the laissez-faire mention of our sex life.  Maybe it was the graphic explanation of the period from hell.  Either way, I think my husband is getting used to me talking about stuff that makes most people uncomfortable. If I’m being honest, a lot of it makes me twitchy too.  That’s why I don’t share a lot of deep level ideas in everyday conversation.   Who does, though? Most people...

Do You Want to Succeed at Your Goals?  Or Do You Want to Be Excellent?

This time last year I publicly laid out my 3 biggest goals for 2013.  I was terrified that I would fail and look like a fool. Well, guess what? I failed big time.  And even though I didn’t get the results I wanted, “feeling like a fool” is the furthest thing from my mind.  This post goes in depth into where I messed up, what I learned, and how you can avoid the same mistakes I’ve made. Warning: This is a long post and it gets down and dirty with some stuff you might not be prepared to read.  It will force you to look...

Don’t Be A Perfectionist Everything Will Be Fine

Don’t Be A Perfectionist Everything Will Be Fine

Perfectionism or a Desire to Not Suck? The other day I was working on a project and it wasn’t turning out the way I thought it should.  My friend looked over and flippantly said “It’ll be fine.” My response? “I don’t really do fine.” Another friend chimed in with “Don’t let perfectionism stop you from delivering…” Ahh, wiser words have never been spoken. Or have they? Am I the only one who is tired of hearing the “don’t be a perfectionist” speech? First of...

How to Make a Hard Decision

Happy Thanksgiving! To thank you for being a 631 fan, I have a new free resource for you.  So make sure you read to the end. Thanksgiving, Reflection, and Hard Decisions I love Thanksgiving.  I think it’s because there is no agenda.  The day can be whatever you decide.  Everyone just gets together to enjoy each other’s company and to remember all of the reasons we have to be thankful.  It’s a nice time for reflection right before the rush of the holidays. But sometimes that reflection brings the self-realization that another...
