Kitty's Keys!

Sunday, April 28, 2013

I can't find my funny little quote for this. So here we go, all Kitty.

See, I've been asked more than once how I do what I do. How I accomplish what I do. Well, there are two thing that are important for me.

1) I'm stubborn as a bull headed mule. Actually, once I get my mind set on something I make a mule look rather compliant. I can be a real PIA and there is nothing that gets in my way. I fight, claw, cry, scream, and chew my way to where I want to be.

2) I have FUN!! I play and try never to take anything seriously. I get down and get angry but I try to deal with it with humor and sarcasm. The only way I get through life is by having fun with it.

Now I know this can sound like 2 mutually exclusive things but they are not. I get focused and start working - then I get silly. Look at my running outfits! I wear tutu's and Guinness jammies and anything else that tickles me. My goofiness is part of my motivation. Being a little twisted also helps. When I am having fun, I can accomplish anything and when I accomplish things I Snoopy Dance (and yes I do it in public).

That whole thing about dance like no one is watch is so very true. I don't care if people think I'm strange or whatever. I am strange, I don't believe in limitations, and I think "normal" is just people giving up on their personal "freak flag".

Heck as I sit here typing this, I'm realizing that 90% of my stress outs are when I worry about what someone who I wouldn't split a brownie with said or expects from me. Hey, I just learned something from myself. I get a Snoopy dance tonight!

So there you have it, Kitty's keys to success. Be focused, have fun, dance, laugh, and don't give a rat's arse what others think.

    My family takes pride in being "weird." It keeps us from being boring! If everyone was the same, imagine how boring the world would be. emoticon

    I love the idea of dancing like no one is watching. I used to be so self conscious and cared too much on what others thought about me. While I still care what other think, I do what makes me happy. And I dont care if people watch me working out or jogging like a turtle through peanut butter. I do it for me. Thanks for the post. I love Kitty's keys.

    When I was younger, I was a lot like that, but did calm down as I got older. Hubby worries more about what people think than I do.

We are far to stressed out, and should have more fun with life. That's what makes you a good leader.

Keep being YOU !! emoticon

    Happy dog with a wide open gate.

Some messages I need to take to heart as I start a new week. Now I just need to find a way to deal with when the people I would split a brownie with take issue with me.

    emoticon This was a "good one." I think part of not giving a rat's tail is part of life. I know I was that way when I was younger. Then, I had kids and "settled down" a bit maybe to set a good example when the kids were younger. Now, I'm back to that I really don't care what others think.

I agree that we get uptight when we worry about what others' think. We all are guilty of this, but as we get more comfortable in our own skin, those opinions mean less and less!

Way to go and I'm off and running like someone left the gate open!

    Let your freak flag fly high into the sky.
As long ago as I can remember I was tagged "weird but sweet" and have rocked it ever since.

    not giving a rats A$$ also comes with age!! LOL you get to a point in your life when you think what is the point of me being all "proper" no one cares unless you are a tight A$$ and I really don't care what they think!

So go have some fun, twisted or not, twisted is definitely more fun! emoticon
