The Modern Failure

You are my hero­ine! And by hero­ine I mean lady hero. I don’t want to inject you and lis­ten to jazz.”

—Liz Lemon, 30 Rock

Right now my lady hero is my friend Chanelle, who is writ­ing an awe­some blog called The Mod­ern Fail­ure. In it she explores “the areas in which the mod­ern woman may feel like a fail­ure (the work­place, the work­out, the home, preg­nancy, being ‘green’, etc), the ori­gins of the mod­ern woman’s expec­ta­tions of her­self, and why we wake up every day feel­ing like we are already behind.”

I pretty much think that if you have ever been, cared about, or even met a mod­ern woman human being on this planet, you should prob­a­bly read it. Right now.

Today because it was my birth­day I had a cup of Turk­ish cof­fee and when I was done I read my for­tune in the bot­tom of the cup. Here is what I saw:

An owl, two kit­ties, a pony, a hawk, a genie, and an alli­ga­tor on the beach. Quite aus­pi­cious indeed.

Best of 2009 #31: Resolution[less]

I’m not much for res­o­lu­tions, which always seem to have have a funny way of turn­ing into let­downs when cir­cum­stances (or more often inter­ests) change your abil­ity (or desire) to meet them.

In 2009 I turned 30, and I for­mally set goals for the first time in many years. Right now they are taped up in a note­book for me to read some­day in the future. I will prob­a­bly have met some of them, be work­ing on oth­ers, and some of them won’t res­onate the same way they did when I wrote them down so I’ll leave those behind. I have started ver­bal­iz­ing some of my dreams and have left oth­ers unspo­ken. The impor­tant thing is to sim­ply have them.

Now, bring on 2010!!

Best of 2009 #21: Project.

Best of 2009 #20: New Person

I have a seri­ous prob­lem with the idea that any of my friends are more “bester” than the oth­ers, because it reminds me of 3rd grade when I got tem­porar­ily kicked out of the best friends club because I couldn’t make it across the mon­key bars. How­ever, the oper­a­tive word in this Best of 2009 prompt is “new”. This year I grew a new friend­ship with a really amaz­ing per­son who inspired me in ways that I am not sure she real­izes. This per­son is tak­ing risks and dar­ing to dream in her own life — start­ing a busi­ness, liv­ing cre­atively, seek­ing health­ful­ness, and find­ing her own path. If you are read­ing this, I hope you know who you are. Thank you for being you!

Best of 2009 #6: Workshop

Best of 2009 #4: book

Me: OK, we’re going to med­i­tate now. Let’s draw our atten­tion to the breath and focus on the mantra. Om Namah Shiv­aya. Om Namah Shiv

Mind: “I can help you out with this, you know!

Me: OK, good, because I need your help. Let’s go. Om Namah Shiv­aya. Om Namah Shiv

Mind: I can help you think of nice med­i­ta­tive images. Like — hey, here’s a good one. Imag­ine you are a tem­ple. A tem­ple on an island. And the island is in the ocean!

Me: Oh, that is a nice image.

Mind: Thanks, I thought of it myself…
