Have you ever seen one of those boneless chickens? It really is a sad sight. And telling me they are free range boneless chicken just makes things worse. Bunch of chicken oozing around like a big feathery slug.
I was at dinner with my girlfriend at Texas Roadhouse. At this particular restaurant they love a few things: steak, buttery rolls, and mother fucking country music beeeotch!
I told her the following joke after about the third country song (and my third roll for what it’s worth):
*First a quick note: this joke isn’t going to seem that funny as you read it, but that isn’t my point… just hear me out.*
“the next country song will always be the worst song you will have ever heard”
She found this funny. Which was the point, but not what this was about. This is about the dude sitting with his pregger wife in the booth next to us. He looked miserable (and kind of creepy). But he laughed about it. And that made me smile as well.
This is why I like telling jokes. This guy looked like he was having a below average day in the joy department (maybe it had something to do with the fact that it was also Easter Sunday and he wasn’t going to be getting in creeper sex). But at least for a fleeting moment he heard something that made him smile and laugh.
This is part of what motivates me.
Perfectly stated. I can relate and am very grateful that I can.
Maybe I am just too much of a cynic… but I can’t help but feel that so many of the “likes” I get are just people looking for more views of their blogs.
Or link to blogs that have ways to make $$$ over the internet.
But, I am cynical… so if you will, leave me a comment.
Even if it is telling me to quit being such a cynical little bitch.
Love you 🙂
Over the past couple of years I have begun to explore what in my life makes me happy.
Comedy is one of those things.
Another is helping other people, in a variety of ways.
The former is something I have started doing, and is kind of a hobby, no real career aspirations.
The later is a different story. I currently work for the USAF. I have a pretty good job, when you consider pay, security, and benefits. I don’t have a good job when one considers I have absolutely no love there. I have no desire to work for the USAF every morning when I wake up. This is not new, and is an issue I have been dealing with since I began my job over six years ago.
With that being said. I am grateful for my job. It has providing me with many opportunities. I could finish my career there and have a nice life.
However, I am looking for more. Looking to reach my potential, to become and do what makes me happy; helping people get the most out of life.
I attempted this when I was younger when I got my BS in psychology. Due to life’s little obstacles, I was not able to pursue higher education in that field.
So now I am at a point in my life where I am ready to pursue a career where I can help people more. I am looking to become a certified life coach. This has been a tricky field and career option to research. The training and certification process can feel vague and “to good to be true.”
I see the value in a life/career coach. I think this is something I would be good at. I just don’t know where to get started. I feel like I have looked at dozens of training programs… each promising a fruitful career if you just spend a couple thousands dollars with their training.
I don’t know what to do. So here is my questions to the wonderful blog-o-sphere:
What do you think of life coaching?
What training programs have you life coaches out there found success with and are there ones you would avoid?
Sorry that this blog was long and humorless, but I hope to find some words of wisdom.
