Eines Tages stehst du da,
siehst dich um in deiner Wohnung,
siehst 'n Kabinett aus Sinnlosigkeiten, siehst das Ergebnis von Kaufen und Kaufen von Dingen,
von denen man denkt man würde sie irgendwann brauchen,
siehst so viel Klamotten die du
nie getragen hast und die du
nie tragen wirst und trotzdem
bleiben sie bei dir... Eines Tages merkst du,
wie viel Altlast auf deiner Seele wächst.
Immer mehr hängt immer öfter blutsaugend an deiner Kehle.
Wie geil die Vorstellung wär, das alles loszuwerden...
Doch zuerst musst du deine Zelte abbauen, bevor du ein neues aufbaust.
Du ziehst dieses alte, kaputte Zelt sonst überall hinter dir her.
Und eines Tages fällt dir auf,
dass du 99% davon nicht brauchst!
Du nimmst all den Ballast...
Und schmeißt ihn weg!
Denn es reist sich besser
mit leichtem Gepäck!
Die Entscheidung ist gefallen. ✔
Hawaii Tip - The turtles come up onto shore to rest so please respect them and give them their space. Locals request for tourists to stay 10 feet away as the turtles are very sensative and will sense danger and head back to the ocean exhausted without rest and become an easier target for accidents and predators if you stay too close.
“At 21, I started a business in the food industry with my three best friends. they relied on me for every single thing but I knew exactly what I was doing and had make clear and reliable financial projections.
Thing is, after a year, we still weren't making any money and my co-founders lost patience and refused to stick to the original plan, which was to wait another couple months and see the results come to life.
They did not understand the numbers, they did not get the point of investing in marketing and operations, and because my previous business had failed, they were scared to see the same thing happen before their eyes and their savings go up in smoke. On top of that, they were coming from a low-income neighborhood and this was basically their only chance to have a better future, so they decided to fire me. My own best friends.
I did not want to go through that hell and mediate with lawyers. I had to pay back my salary and worse, completely disassociate with the company.
My name was erased from every single piece of paperwork, my face was scratched off the pictures, etc, when I'm the one who made every single business decision. From the color of the sofa to the items on the menu, that are by the way still unchanged today.
Years later, after following my business plan and projections to the letter, the business turned to be a success and my old friends and partners admitted their fault. We reconciled and they sent me a check with the money I had to pay back. I really needed it at the time, but I ripped it apart.
They still call me every once in a while for business advice, and we hang out... When something really bad (major) happens to me, say I get dumped by a girlfriend or fired from a job for example, I use the first 24, next 24, next 24 rule:
During the first 24 hours, after my raw emotions come out, I reflect on my mistakes, my learnings, what I have to do to move on, my biggest takeaways, and then I don't think about it again for the next 24 days, then I do the same thing 24 months later!" • FULL STORY ON THE BLOG •
Hawaii Tip - I have 3 pool tips so wanted to say them all.. plus I like all three of these pics and couldn't pick just one.. 2- When you are done with your floatie, give it away! I can't tell you how many times I had the best time because someone gifted me their floatie! I had free flair for the trip! My favorite one was the lobster someone left me and my girls in Vegas! Now THAT was a good pool party! #tbt
Hawaii Tip - I have 3 pool tips so wanted to say them all.. plus I like all three of these pics and couldn't pick just one.. 1- Get a blow up anything before you go on vacation. They usually sell them for a minimum of a $1 in stores if you know the right local spot. On vacation, that same $1 float will cost you anywhere from $25 - $100 at a resort or in another store! And it's so easy to pack!
Hawaii Tip - Sounds gross... but an easy way to clean your shells so they don't smell is to leave them outside. Ants will come and eat/clean them and they won't smell. Then you just wash them and you are good to go.
