Up until recently, I spelt the word “business” wrong 99% of the time and still, to this day, I have to take a pause when I go to write it and think really hard if that “i” comes before or after that first “s”.
So, if nothing else comes of this blog and it gets zero readers, at the very least I’ll have learned how to confidently type the word “business”.
(Pronounced “numb”). If you haven’t noticed by now, it’s an acronym for: None of my business.
I especially like the acronym because I’m pretty numb to a lot of things that aren’t my business anymore.
Let me explain.
If it doesn’t inspire me, make me happy or make me money, it’s NONE OF MY BUSINESS. Spending my time and energy on things that aren’t my business benefits me and the people who rely on me, ZERO percent.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve replayed arguments in my head all day long, looked and compared my follower counts on Instagram to someone else or even spent money I didn’t have going on a trip because everyone else was.
Those one sided conversations, invisible competition and trips I couldn’t afford were all fueled by negativity and really don’t do anything for me.
It might cost you your pride at first but that’s a great trade for the peace of mind you’ll soon discover from just staying in your own lane. You only get one life so live it for you, free of distractions. Your thoughts and feelings can be changed and you, first and foremost, have the power to do that.
That took YEARS for me to accomplish and I’m actually highly proud of this and that’s why I’ve decided to name my blog after said accomplishment.
I’ve been wanting to write a blog for years actually. On two separate occasions I actually bought domains and built websites and then never did anything with them and I honestly couldn’t tell you why that is.
This blog entry and many in the future will be written late at night while I’m in bed and Cody’s sound asleep. I’m the perfect definition of a night owl. I do all my best work and have all my best ideas late at night when I should be sleeping. I’ve written countless blog posts that were pure poetic genius in my head late at night just to have them flee at the first sight of sunlight.
No more I say!
From now on I’ll be sleeping with my iPad right on my nightstand so that when a stroke of genius hits, it’ll be right there so I can share my brilliance with the world.
Some people are the best versions of themselves in the morning. Not me. I’m a wet noodle when I have to peel the crusty eye boogers off my face and roll my tush downstairs.
Some people have their best ideas in the shower or even while taking a dump and you know what? I sympathize with the latter because people are never around when night owls and leisurely poopers create masterpieces. Everyone else is either sleeping or won’t come in the bathroom with you because it smells bad.
Such a shame.
But this blog is my Louvre. My Guggenheim. Home to all of my works of art (with the exceptions of my babies). It’s where I’ll be minding my own business so on the off chance you want to listen to the inner workings of my brain, it’ll all be in one convenient location.
Thanks for stopping by!
