Have you ever agreed to do something and then thought, “Why did I say yes and what the hell was I thinking?” Well, I have decided to do a TED Talk. Gulp. And it is this month on March 20. Eek!
Ok, now I had my moment where the self-doubt dances around in my head, then my real warrior self says, “Nope you got this. It is essential; you are going to rock it and do some good in the world. Get over yourself; this is not about you. You are a vessel to speak the word of happiness.”
I have decided that my talk is going to be a video version of a love letter to my great, great grandchildren and future generations. How cool would it be to have a family member on video three generations removed, talking directly to you about what they thought made for a great life? I would love to hear what wisdom my Scottish, Irish, English Great Grandmother had to share with me. That would be precious. These thoughts push me further into sharing in my upcoming TED Talk, what I’ve learned to for a happy ever after life.
Through the lumps and bumps of my life, I have learned a lot of what and what not to do along the way. I have made some big mistakes and some smart moves. My thinking is to give them a fast track journey on a smoother road with Granny Rhonda GPS vs. driving with eyes closed on a dirt road with hidden potholes.
I want them to show them that on the other side of fear there is usually something fabulous. By doing the TED Talk, I am challenging one of the most feared phobias! But being afraid of something is not a reason not to do it. Feel the fear and do it anyway, embrace it.
This process has made me stop and take stock of things that are important to me, am I doing the things I am telling them to do? How can I preach it, if I am not practicing it?
Being plugged into your life, making a plan, then working that plan creates massive shifts in your future. Some things I am monitoring are my daily water intake, journaling, getting outside and enjoying nature.
What are you doing with action movements to make your heart happy? I invite you to leave your family a video or letter sharing with them what you believe it takes to create a magical life. What would you tell them?
I dare you to get that pen out and do it right now. I bet you have some unique tips that could change lives and the gesture of you caring enough to do it is worth its weight in gold. Do it, make a difference, your life has been a valuable gift to this world. Share it! You’re amazing!
If you want to come cheer me on, my Ted Talk will be March 20, 10:00 am upstairs at the Boutique Theater at Nacho Daddy. It will be a gathering of the happy hearts; come share and meet a friend.
Homework: Write your letter, shoot a video or even make a call, your peeps with be delighted! Your life is meaningful; give the gift of your experiences. Your life is meaningful give the gift of your experiences.
