Superhero Tools At Work
It’s the last week of month! You know what that means! Well, maybe not, since I still haven’t done the giveaway from last month. BUT if I had then you’d know that the last week of the month is the giveaway week! Because I’m good with the big picture and bad with the small details, the winner of the giveaway that should have happened last month will now be announced along with the winner of this weeks’ givewaway! Read through to the bottom for details!
This week we’re assembling our superhero tools. Don’t blow this week off…you are going to need every tool you have in the weeks to come. All the things that you value most to wear, eat, hear, read, craft, and help you through the day are to be included in your superhero arsenal.
Some of you overachievers already have your tools assembled. I don’t want you to get bored, so here’s a bonus part to this challenge:
DO SOMETHING WITH WHAT YOU’VE GOT!
FILM OR PHOTOGRAPH IT!
SHARE IT (either on the freeplaylife facebook page OR by using the hashtag #fplphoto on twitter or instagram)
I’ve gotten some comments about how you still remember old dance routines from high school to songs you still listen to. I’ve heard about silly songs you made up years ago that you still sing. I’ve caught wind of weird and wacky talents that you never show anyone. Rumor has it you might have a kickass Cher impersonation when you Karaoke “Do You Believe In Life After Love”.
I want to see that shit!
And in fact, I’d love for your friends to see that shit. Facebook is always a good forum for such nonsense. I’m really big on this sharing idea because when you allow yourself to shine and be who you are, you give permission for everyone else to do the same. I guarantee that when (or, if!) you assbooked, there were a handful of people who thought you were batshit crazy and then 490850394583 more who laughed and thought differently about their own asses after that. These challenges are designed to rid your life of the haterz and fill them full of the mobs of lovers. Not literally lovers, mind you, but more like the people that love you. Unless you’re single and then I wish for you mobs of lovers and people that love you. Not that I’m excluding you married people from good loving! So I guess I do wish lovers for you, only not so many. As in, just one. I wish for you a mob of lover.
Anyhoo, now I’m all hot and bothered and forgot about the point!
I’ll start fresh with a new point. I’ll share an example of what I mean about doing some performance art with your superhero tools. Last month Naturalist and I got dressed in some superhero garb and hooped around to my superhero song. I’ve got it all here…hoop, long socks, sunglasses, camera, and I’m shimmering with body glitter. What I lack in coordination and ability when I hoop I make up for with happiness and play! I’ve only been hooping for 3 months, so just about everyone is better than I am. That’s kind of the point. The goal is to be good with where you are in life, what you have, and what you can do. Love it in all it’s imperfection! If I can do it, so can you.
Any video or photo uploaded this week will be counted as double when I write your name down for the giveaway. Yes, I promise I will actually do the giveaway this month! Both giveaways, actually!
This month I have a $50 gift certificate to Lulu Bug Jewelry.
