This is not about you

You’re so vain you probably think this post is about you.

If the shoe fits, wear it!

If you think it’s about you, you’re probably right.

Why? What is it that you need to learn now?

Is it possible this post ISN’T about you at all, but for whatever reason, this message strikes a chord in your psyche?

We all have this thing in our brain called the reticular activator.

It’s that part of brain that filters all of the “noise” in our environment other than this ONE thing.

When you buy a new car, you start noticing other people driving that same model EVERYWHERE.

No! There are not more of them on the road, it’s your awareness of them that’s different.

When we have “sensitivity” in our heads, we are vulnerable to references that align with those sensitivities.

So . . . You have a “bad hair day”, and suddenly you start hearing people making off color comments about hairdos . . . and you notice people looking at you in strange ways – and they giggle.

Next thing ya know, you’re in full-on paranoia and fight or flight syndrome kicks in.

You’re CERTAIN the whole world is noticing your hair and YOU are today’s punching bag.


This blog post is NOT about YOU!

Your reticular activator is working over-time to optimize your Vulnerability.

DON’T let it derail you!

Other people don’t have enough time or energy to be gossiping about you . . . unless – well – unless they are “those busybody people”

Don’t let them define you!

Just smile and wave and flaunt your ridiculously beautiful hairdo.

Life’s too short . . .
