fool’s gold

A positive lyric as opposed to the Fitz and the Tantrums version, Happy St. Patrick’s Day and please wear green for Cerebral Palsy.

How can one lower blood pressure, reduce stress and keep cortisol levels under control? Just touch someone! A yummy hug even twenty seconds long releases oxytocin to the brain. Over time, time heals all wounds, the act of hugging can reduce the risk of heart disease. There is that hormone again, persistent lil guy, oxytocin. It is a fact that human touch is understood by the central nervous system as a reward and therefore translated to the psyche as happy. Pharrell nailed it! Skateboard P had vision. Happy makes for a fulfilled life. Happy makes money. Happy is health. I know a Coach, a trainer, a celebrity that claims health is wealth. The only difficult part in this touch thing is finding the perf partner to touch all day long! I think I’m going to ask my boyfriend to give me a massage or something, for the benefit of his happiness of course.

I plan on touching many a person tomorrow at my first live Master Coaching appearance. I’ll be passing out gold. My word. It’s gold. If I say I’m going to do it, I do. I keep my promises. It’s a matter of loyalty. I can’t wait to report how this session goes. It’s a large group of professionals that are looking for some empathy and leadership! It isn’t my first rodeo! I’m truly excited. Managing people makes for great profit. Right?

Why do people run marathons? I thought about this throughout the run in DC this weekend. I saw a man run for his “never forgotten Viejita”. I met a man running to propose to his future wife. The sign read, “I’m in love with a fast woman”. The groups of people that run for clubs, gyms, costumes and just plain unifying fun are endless. I ran in Washington for many reasons, mainly for my boo tho. I think because I was running towards the White House for most of the marathon and because I was recently stripped of my freedom, I ran for liberty. I also thought about the final days of my son being thirteen. I ran for him. I ran for future. I found an American looney. The only reason I knew it was a looney was because I lived in Canada. Darren gets paid to run and now, I did too. I made a dollar. I value each dollar I make. I spent the last twenty two years working hard.

It paid off!

Kimberely Whitley told us “we better make it” on the way to Miami from Atlanta! She had no idea that she was talking to two Super Spartans and we had no idea we were speaking to one of the funniest women in comedy! You see, things happen to you when you least expect them to.

My father always told me to beware of the man behind a microphone. In my life experience, I fear more an unsuspecting professional with a pen. My beliefs are simple really- just follow the Golden Rule. Do onto others as you would have them do onto you. I am famous for being fooled.

and if you don’t know, I’m glad you happened to me,
