Bah Humbug

No Christmas tree, no Christmas tree, how I enjoooyeeed life without you.

No cleanup, no time spent decorating, and no nativity sets! No to Christmas!!!

Whaaaaat? No fun.

The correct term is “No commitment.” Or as my friend says, "Life before diapers." 

After 37 years of party on, my run ended. I lost money in a Bitcoin mine, Bah humbug. I found a job training public speakers, bah humbug. But, if you know any youth who want to win the international youth speaking competition-- classes start in January (contact me below). We have a baby on the way (that’s not such a bad thing).

Dads Have To Get er Done

I will have to celebrate Christmas, Halloween, mothers day, fathers day, and all the other Canadian holidays. Bah humbug!

Life before diapers was good, BUT we would have been the old couple saying, “I kind of regret not having children.”

I find that a baby is breathing new wind in the sails, not to mention good behaviour.

Jody and I went to Midnight mass (for the baby), we went to family events (for the baby), and I watched every Hallmark Christmas movie (not for the baby). On Christmas day we watched Elf (for the baby), and it had Jody and I feeling good until boxing day, the start of a regular work week. Bah Humbug!

I know... 

Hopefully, our baby comes out sleeping through the night, and wiping its own butt. I’m sure it will, I know everything about rapid learning. I forgive everyone. You forgive everyone. I forgive myself. You forgive yourself. I forgive the past. You forgive the past. I am free. You are free. I love Louise Hay. You should love Louise Hay. I joyfully look forward to the future. You see only good ahead of you. I trust the universe. You trust the universe.

You wouldn't believe how much I once hated affirmations and quotes. My ex, ex girlfriend used to post quotes on Facebook before there was Instagram, and I was like, “What a load of crap! People go around quoting people, ideas, and ways of life totally opposite to their reality.”

I am willing to love my body. You are willing to love your body. I love my body more every day. You love your body more every day. I'm listening to Louise Hay right now. My body is beautiful. Your body is beautiful.

I love the way I look.

You love the way you look.

I am a magnet for joy,

You are a magnet for joy.

I can't stop. There is too much happiness in these lies. Bah humbug.

New year's is coming. That means gym memberships will be up, health food a priority, and what is the one thing people will forget to do?

Brain work.

You’re working out at the gym listening to Cardi B, I’m working out at the gym listening to calming music and a Spanish guy with kind of bad English saying, I am my own best doctor. I deserve to be happy. My body heals rapidly. I choose to live in perfect health. I nourish my body with healthy food. Each day my health improves greatly. Every cell in my body is healthy. Every action I take moves me closer to my perfect life.

Does it work?

I don't know. I do know that it gets a little weird at the gym when I start shouting out affirmations. “My well-being is my highest priority in life! I manifest perfect health right now!”

I don’t know if you know this or not, and I’m not going to look up the actual study- it’s Christmas, just believe.

Reading out loud is a good way to learn.

You can learn anything, a new recipe--- read it out loud. Do that once or twice and bam, it’s in there. Now, you have to learn how to find it. When you read out loud every word is important, that's why childrens books are so short. They get the picture. 

Why am I so goddamn positive?!? Here is the answer, read it out loud.

I breathe in the fullness and richness of life. I observe with joy as life abundantly supports me, and supplies me with more good than I can imagine. My life is a mirror. Every person in my life is a reflection of some part of me. The people I love, reflect the loving aspect of myself. Those people I dislike, reflect those parts of myself that need healing. Every experience in life is an opportunity for growth, and healing. The people in my life are mirrors of me, and this affords me the opportunity to grow and change.

Bah Humbug.

How can I not make you feel good?

Seriously, Happy holidays.

You are a great and wonderful person.
