Stuff To Read While You’re Pretending To Work: 6/3/16
Do you ever get caught in the trap of reminiscing? I’m not referring to the Pete Rock and CL Smooth 1992 hip-hop classic “They Reminisce Over You.”
Probably one of my top-10 all-time favorite hip-hop songs.
No, I mean “reminisce” in the sense of remembering where you were or what you were doing 24 hours ago, a day ago, a week ago, even a year or more ago.
Do you ever do that?
A week ago today, my wife and I were walking and biking through the streets of Copenhagen. We had an amazing day that day.
A year ago today, we were in the Bahamas celebrating our honeymoon. Facebook reminded me by reposting the following picture on my Wall via my Facebook Memories this morning.
And who knows: I’m sure if I were to dig a little deeper into my subconscious I could come up with some other examples.
Five years ago today my wife and I were preparing to move in with one another.
Five years ago tomorrow we were ready to strangle each other and second guessing that decision.
It’s surreal to think back at all the cool places I’ve been and experiences I’ve experienced. Part of reminiscing is to think back on things fondly. But too, understandably, reminiscing can be about perseverance, heart ache, tragedy, and death.
I don’t know what my point is. Honestly, I started typing and these thoughts were the first thing that entered my head; so I apologize for the discombobulated intro to today’s stuff to read.
Maybe the idea is to encourage people to reminisce over a positive thought or memory. In light of today’s political/religious/racial/financial/world climate – where everything is doom and gloom (and abhorrent rhetoric) – try to think of one positive thing (past/present) that puts a smile on your face.
If nothing else, go listen and bob your head to Pete Rock and CL Smooth’s jam.
REMINDER: Strong Body-Strong Mind Workshop – Austin, TX
Speaking of my wife and I, we’ll both be in Austin, TX on Saturday June 18th for our inaugural Strong Body-Strong Mind Workshop.
There are plenty of workshops, seminars, and conferences that speak to how to make the body strong, but not many that incorporate mindset and behavior change. This is something we both feel is an underserved “niche” within the fitness industry.
I can speak to turning people into deadlifting terminators.
Lisa – who has a doctorate in Sports Psychology and specializes in Exercise/Behavioral Psychology – can speak to what goes on in people’s noggins.
