I think for each of us it means something different, but the general sense is Kickassery is something that feels awesome. In fact to be a little more formal, the Urban Dictionary defines Kickassery as, “how much ass something kicks”. And to me something kicking ass is similar to something that totally rocks!!
Anyway – over the past few weeks, I’ve been on a mission to rediscover what totally rocks or kicks ass in my life.
You see, over the past few years I’ve been so consumed with building a business and everyday life that I totally – and I mean totally – lost what kicks ass in my life. Seriously – LOST IT!
And the crazy thing is – I didn’t even realize it. What?!
I sat down the other day to take a minute to notice what brings me joy. The funny thing is, the list took forever, and I mean forever, to get started. I was getting nothing for the longest time.
And then …
Well this is what my list looked like:
- Being creative (I’m not an artist, but love to try)
- Collecting vintage items (love a good treasure hunt)
- Going to auctions (again – the treasure hunt)
- Spending time with my family (especially when we are all together)
- Reading a great book (the kind you can’t put down)
- Cooking (while drinking wine of course)
- Dancing with friends (while drinking wine of course ;))
- Singing at the top of my lungs (especially to Bon Jovi)
- Traveling (to new and old places )
These were the main points of my list. And you know what the funny thing is – no where on this list did it say building a successful business. What’s up with that?!
Seriously, I spent all this time focused on business and lost myself along the way. So what did I do about it? Well the first thing I did was order an adult coloring book – yeah I use to love to color and was looking at these books for awhile.
The next thing I did was open an Etsy shop to sell my vintage items. I have so much stuff that we bought over the years and it is time to start sharing the treasures with others!!
And what happened after I started adding Kickassery back into my life –
Well, the coloring book arrived and I totally fell in LOVE!! Just by working on this, I can feel my creative juices flowing. My Etsy shop is not even a week old and I already made two sales!! I am so excited for my treasures to end up with someone who loves them as much as I do.
A few other things that happened after I set the Kickassery intention – and these were totally by accident …
I spent time on Thanksgiving with my family laughing until I was crying and my mouth hurt (yeah that’s on my list now). We also had a dance party in the neighbor’s kitchen until 3am!! And of course there was singing to Bon Jovi. We even had a little polka going on!!
Seriously – the Etsy shop and the coloring book I planned, but the rest – well it just happened. Slowly, I’m watching the Kickassery come back – it is even feeling a little more natural now. And of course I’m carrying this intention with me into the New Year.
2016 – the year I create a Kickassery Biz & Life!! Who’s with me?
If you are looking to bring back the Kickassery in your life, let’s find a time to talk. I’d love to help you come up with a plan on how to make that happen!!
