I dont’know about you but if you have followed my recent blog  entries you probably have walked away vowing never to return and if so not any time soon.  Ok I admit that I have run into a rocky road of my own, re-thinking a new marketing plan and it’s simply hot as ….here in Washington DC and quite frankly across the country.

I have decided while riding my bike in my living room to write something more stimulating and that hits home for all of us out here that faced with challenges and goals and plans (and what our next strategy should be) that seems as if they are at a standstill.

There are a couple of songs that I can think of right now that I can envision that I find will get me to begin lightening up!

“Indiana wants me ..Lord I can’t go back there. (that’s not true )  And there’s the great Frank Sinatra..a definite  song for moving forward and setting new plans and goals and visualizing . In the song , “That’s Life ” he mentions  when things are not shaking in July..I’m gonna get on a big bird and fly , my my!

Are u following me? Perhaps this is where you are?  I’m not one of those guys who can take off in August  but I guess I can  take a little trip inside my head and then, jot it down on paper.   You can also begin writing some action steps for yourself. I can only imagine what your list would consist of for lightening up.

1 Jet Blue is advertising flights at $44 dollars one way…maybe you’re thinking of leaving this town…if you need to return just do the math  $44 more for your way back

2 There are  museums up the yin yang in this town and well all sorts of  monuments…one day at a time,  however I would make sure that they’re open.. you know that budget thing?

3 Let the dogs out… no not like that!  don’t do that but  how about volunteering your time …perhaps an hour ..if I recall the animal shelter over on New York Ave (DC) will probably allow  you to take a dog for a walk! You may have to show your ID! You know times are tough out here for many of ya.. unemployment reported up 10 % IN THIS TOWN….notice I didn’t mention the nation’s capital

4 The Atlanta Braves are in town ..I think they’re playing the Washington Nationals ..a place to get away from it all ..that stress I mentioned at the beginning of this article. Get a cold beverage…Nattie Bo or a sot drink and hot dog and some Cracker Jacks and simply get lost in the fifth inning.

5 I’ m stopping here at five leaving you at 6-10 things  to do to lighten up …leave it alone for a while …get away…do something different that’s positive and legal and safe. I do not want you to harm yourself nor someone else out here  while living a little.

* I did want to mention that I did see in the news the other day that there were some collective dancing going on in the streets.I’m for that !

There are an assortment  of clubs and eateries in this place and  do stay healthy my friend…moderation on the spirits ..can’t imagine someone over doing it.

So , Life Coaching begins with me  lightening up and living a little!
