Day 3441 – Most Ideas Sound Dumb At First

I was thinking the other day that most ideas sound dumb at first.

“Hey, what if we put this unknown host in a car with famous singers and, well, they just sing their songs?” Was likely met with “no one will ever do that” or “that’s a terrible idea.” If that idea person didn’t speak up, we wouldn’t have carpool karaoke with James Cordon.

“Hey, what if we had regular people drive their own cars like a taxi?” Was likely met with “no one will ever do that” or “that’s a terrible idea.” If that idea person didn’t speak up, we wouldn’t have Uber, Lyft, etc.

I’m sure you have an idea brewing that you think is dumb. “There’s no way I can make money doing that…..no one will care about this….it won’t make a difference in the world.”

I’ve found that sometimes you can put a ton of stuff out there and it only makes a difference to a few people. The people who have reached out about their drinking have been few, compared to my subscriber list and friends list, but that’s ok with me. So don’t throw out your “dumb idea” follow through with it and who knows where you’ll end up.

Day 3440 – International Mountain Day

One place my soul is always at home is in the mountains. There is nothing like breathing the mountain air and hiking to the summit. I love that there are days to celebrate mountains.

Here’s some of my fav mountains.

Day 3439 – How To Have A Good Marriage

The other day, Bret asked “what’s our secret?” i.e. how do we have such a great marriage? Here’s a few things we realized.

The biggest thing is communication. From sharing when something is bothering you, to not letting anything be off the table, to sharing even when it won’t be fun in the moment. We’ve learned a lot about each other’s communication style too – it’s SO important to know when the other isn’t actually listening. Sometimes I just want to share an idea without input. lol, like, this may not be a great idea, but I wanted to share it. Then later asking for practical input.

Another big secret is actually talking about the end. I think keeping in mind that you will go at some point helps you embrace the now. Almost every goodbye is laced with a “incase I don’t see you again, it’s been a great life.”

What are your marriage secrets?

Day 3437 – Pretend To Be A Time Traveler Day – What Would I Change?

So what would I change if I could go back in time? Honestly, probably nothing. I realize that the things that I’ve gone through in life have made me the person that I am today, and I really like that person. The battles we fight, the horrible (and wonderful) things we experience are what make us who we are.

If I could go back in time, I think I’d want to just observe, really see things that I did….especially the things I can’t remember from drinking. It would be interesting to see how I carried myself, the things I talked about, and how utterly different I was. Even though I’m not entirely proud of that drunk girl, she remains a reminder of who I once was and how much I’ve changed for the better.

One point in time that I’ve always wanted to be able to experience is that walk to Emmaus in Luke 24:13-53, where Jesus shares all the mysteries of himself from the old testament.

Ok and let’s be real, I wanna see some dinosaurs…hahah, albeit from a distance.

But at the end of the day, if movies have taught us anything, you wouldn’t really change anything, it would be something that would always be meant to happen, a loop as it were.

Where would you want to travel to if you could time travel? Would you change anything?
