Mosey to LR


Alphabet – On your 6 – feet elevated like 6-inch hold – spell out the alphabet with your feet. All capital letters. In cadence. Slash almost forgot what came after J.


Is your life a mission or task, or something else entirely? Buying a home, selling a home right now, things getting busier at work, mine feels task-based. When I get too task based without a clear mission, I can fall into a Mindset of scarcity versus abundance. “I don’t have enough time, money, activities with friends…”. But abundance is all around us. Walk into a store to buy any food from around the world, walk in my front door and get the infinitely loving smile from my daughter. Easy to fall into the scarcity scarcity mindset trap but it’s limiting and closes me off.

Danish added a great point about mission giving purpose for the daily tasks. Giggles shared that he doesn’t know how he’s going to find time as he starts to think about having kids and find abundance in an already tight schedule. Free Lunch shared a story about when climbing a mountain, you can’t get distracted by looking at the peak – you need to keep your eyes on the next step.

Rock on, Slash out!
