When people say “I don’t have time”

What “having no time” really means.

I was listening to a podcast from the GaryVee Audio Experience featuring Tony Robbins and he said something that really got me thinking.

“If you don’t have 10 minutes, you don’t have a life” -Tony Robbins

I had so many thoughts running through my head that I decided to just shoot a video while still in my car instead of writing out a blog post. Gary Vaynerchuk always says to document and speak your truth. It doesn’t have to be pretty, but what’s important is that you do it. So I did it.

Idea: If we really don’t have 10 minutes to stop and relax, or 10 minutes to connect with someone like, then what kind of life are we truly living? What are the values we’re cultivating in our own lives?

Let me know your thoughts! Do you agree? Disagree? I love healthy discussions 😊

Live “carefree”

Carefree – Daily writing prompt

Adj. free from anxiety or responsibility

So this past weekend, my family and I went to Miami and had a bunch of fun. We explored South Beach, ate a bunch of food, and went flyboarding!

I learned a funny thing while flyboarding with my sister and mom. Even though both my sister and I are “adults” (25 and 27), our mom still worries about us like we are 5 and 7.

You would think that as we get older and can prove to her we can survive on our own, she would worry less.

Nope. In fact, it almost seems like she worries more, haha.

If my sister was flyboarding and she would fall into the water from about 3 ft in the air, my mom would exclaim, “is your sister alright?”

“Yes mom, if she wasn’t, she would be screaming in pain or something.”

“Baby! (referring to my older sister) Are you alright?!”

“Yes mom, she’s alright…” (lol).

Although I’m not a parent yet, I imagine that you’ll always worry about your kids to some extent. But I thought that all that worrying isn’t healthy and probably causes a lot of unnecessary stress.

I have not read the book How to Stop Worrying and Start Living, but Dale Carnegie is phenomenal and I’ve gotten many recommendations to read it, so it’s on my to-read list. (This is probably one of the few books I’ll recommend here that I haven’t read myself, as I’ll almost always recommend books I’ve finished.)

I hope I won’t worry too much when I have kids. I know I will to some extent, but feel like there’s a line where it can get a bit excessive. Sometimes you just gotta let them fly and grow on their own. That’s the best way to make sure they’ll be okay and you’ll live carefree 🙂
