Pursue REAL happiness!

It's important to achieve balance in lifeHave you ever realized that what you want is right in front of you and what you think you want is a load of crap? I have been pretty reflective lately and it’s led to some great conversations between my wife and I about where we are in life, careers, and whatnot and we have come to some realizations about some things we were chasing.  Maybe some of those things weren’t so important and that we wanted to focus energy on some new things going forward. I love my girls and I love my wife… but I have given a lot to my career and I sometimes wonder to what end? I make good money, we have a stable life, cool stuff, and I am upwardly mobile; but are we happier than we were 10 years ago? Have our problems and stresses been reduced? Not really. I make literally 3x what I made 10 years ago and none of those things are measurably better so whats it all for? Krisy and I have really been talking about this and it’s kind of awesome… I’m excited because we are trying to get the ball rolling on some BIG life changes that we feel would simplify things, reduce stress and bring us closer together as a family. I’m not ready to spill the beans yet, but it’s HUGE and exciting.

So what got me thinking about this? It’s another edition of Songs That Get Stuck In My Head! This is one I found on YouTube Thanksgiving day while playing with the girls… They loved the song and I have to admit it’s a catchy tune, but the story spoke to me as well… Give it a listen and let me know if it talks to you.

The Duck Song! 

PS: When we DO make those changes you will know because it’s HUGE! :)

If you are considering rethinking things in your life I highly recommend: ONO, Options Not Obligations: Enrich Your Personal Life by Rethinking Your Financial Life by Mark Warnke. This book has helped me reshape how I think about things and is a book for people who like the idea of family first entrepreneurship.

Songs that get stuck in my head: The Ultimate Showdown!

I’ve been pretty deep all week long so I thought I’d lighten things up a bit today and share yet another of the songs that get stuck in my head: The Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny!  This is an oldie but a goodie going all the way back to 2005! Here is the educational blurb from Wikipedia so you have a little background on the artist Lemon Demon:

The Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny, often shortened to The Ultimate Showdown, is a comical song and video released on December 7, 2005. The song was written and performed by Neil Cicierega under the pseudonym “Lemon Demon”, with art and Flash animation by Shawn Vulliez.

I love this song because it’s catchy, but it also manages to use nearly every pop culture icon of the time into one video and somehow pull it off spectacularly! That and the twist at the end.

If you Would like to know more about this little gem you can get the complete lyrics at Albion Black Sheep.

Enjoy!

Songs that get stuck in my head! Re: Your Brains!

I may have to start a new reoccurring category on my site called Songs That Get Stuck In My head! This song came up on my random play list on Spotify 4 or 5 times yesterday and the situation I was dealing with made it SO appropriate! I LOVE Jonathan Coulton’s music! If you get a chance to see him in concert DO IT!

Have you ever felt like you were in this situation?

 

The Whole Foods Parking lot

I went shopping at Whole Foods yesterday to pick up a few things I wanted that were hard to get at the regular grocery store and some how this got stuck in my head:

I hate it when this happens because 24 hours later it’s still there so I’m just going to leave it here so it can get stuck in yours too!
