What Does Kickassery Mean Anyway?

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!!

Me and My Oldest Home from College 🙂

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 –

A Few of My Etsy Treasures

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!!
