Man oh man, the birthdays, the weddings, first, seconds and even thirds are coming nonstop now. Two babies are coming into my world very soon. My son is fifteen and the years are flying like the wind. I am only going to measure what matters. If you look on the website I made for Lopez & Partners, you will read that. Measure the good stuff, vomit the bad. Do yoga or something healthy.
Freddy Brandt died. So did Robin Williams and Phillip Seymour Hoffman by the way! Freddy was depressed. He was a brilliant doctor and a very kind man. I knew him. I was his patient too. Madonna and I shared the same doctor. It is said that he was very sad because of the constant mocking and jokes made about him. He was different. A visionary. Most recently, a skit on Saturday Night Live purported throwing his mental state into deep depression which prompted his suicide. The medical field lost a great spirit. Small minds can’t comprehend big spirits. What he should’ve remembered is he was great! And to be great, you have to be willing to be mocked, hated and misunderstood. He never spoke ill of anyone in my presence. He was rare.
My Frenemy podcast had the effect I thought it would. I love saying what others think and are too afraid to say themselves.
Two of my friends got engaged this week. One happens to be a sponsor on my podcast, the other is a bad ass! It seems love is in the air. The long term kind. I love that kind. Love isn’t practical. It isn’t meant to be easy. It doesn’t appear on command. It doesn’t let you fall for whom ever you’d like. It surfaces neither at the most opportune moment nor in the most convenient. It’ll pair you with someone you never expected. It’ll put you face to face with endless obstacles. But in the end, none of that will matter because it’s how you overcome its obstacles that will define your love. It may not be practical, but love is ultimately the best thing that will ever happen to you. Congratulations April, Gigi, Ray and Matt! I am so happy for you.
Lulu lemon is moving into my zip code on Tuesday. I can’t wait. Meet me at 7:30pm! I’m the chick in a downward dog with a gym culo!
Speaking of gym culo, I am meeting with a new sponsor. A fitness line. I am so in awe of every offer I get. I am so very grateful. Deets coming soon.
After I’m done blogging, I am putting the finishing touches on my Vancouver plan. I’m over the top excited about Vancouver. It’s just a lot of firsts! I am so lucky. Verda is so delish! I am lean and green.
One of my Life Coaching clients crushed a goal this week. I felt like it happened to me. I wish I could share her story with you. Goal smashing turns me on.
Um yeah, so for the rest of my life, I have promised myself to work hard, love harder and ignore all of the negative elements in the world. Progress isn’t only physical. Fitness changes the way you tolerate crap. I am a fit chick. Instead of crying, screaming, fighting it’s best to work it out with the weights, the cardio, therapy. If you need a Coach, I know the best.
