Hey, we're taking a short break. We will be back soon!

The Compton Co;

Jedis never sleep.

The famed headquarters base fortress.

What it's like writing a book while your five year old stares at you: 

Mom, is this the bad team? It has sirens on it. 
Context: he has now gotten Chris's phone from the bedroom and he's showing me a meme of OJ Simpson's Bronco being followed down the highway by 20 police cars with the words "Me trying to go fishing during quarantine" posted above it.

The last five months of getting 1% better each day has led me here, where I’ve designed my life in a way to allow me to tackle writing my first book (with a lot of help), I’ve officially lost 50 pounds now, I feel great and I know, without a doubt, that I don’t give up on myself anymore.

I cannot believe this is my life!

If you are waiting something out, afraid to ask for the help you know you need, concerned about what it will make you look like to take the meds...I want you to know it takes a lot of strength to ask for help, especially when shame has kept you paralyzed about it.

Go get the help. It makes you a badass, because badasses CHOOSE to do hard things.

Finding my Reason

Finding my Reason
I’m working through my internal angst that my Pam pointed out (she’s mine, but I will share her). Inside GRIT is where we do the hard work on ourselves, but I’m going to share it with you out here so you can travel this journey with me in real time. Just know, when I’m working through things, it seems like I’m all over the place, and that’s because I am.

But if you watch me write my way through something you’ll have a better understanding of what we do in GRIT besides just work out.

Unimportant conversation that isn’t going to let me learn about you seems like a waste of time. I understand that is how you “break the ice” with people but I just can not seem to people correctly.

Talk to me about small talk. Not if you like it, because I can’t imagine anyone likes it, talk to me about if you can do it. (Ok, if you like it, tell me that because I can’t fathom a world where someone likes small talk).

Who is your Pam?

Who is your Pam?
GRIT writing forces you to examine yourself and then handle your business. I know whatever decisions I make are going to be unpleasant in some way or another, so rather than attack that head on, I was pretending to myself I just needed a “break”. As Pam said, I wanted to be an ostrich, sticking my head in the sand and only coming up to see if everything was still the same. Then burying my head back down again upon the realization that it is, in fact, still the same.

She also hit me between the eyes with, “You know the answer. You just don’t want to do it.”

Kindhearted Badass

Kindhearted badasses know they hold the pen and they choose to write themselves an epic story because we are the authors of our lives. We wield our mighty pens like the powerful tools they are, constantly making edits and rewriting our scripts.
