Know Your ABC’s

Ah, the ABC’s. 

You know, it is said that we can begin to teach our children the alphabet when they are around 2 or 3 years of age. It is also noted that the longest word in the English language has 189,819 letters and would take you three and a half hours to pronounce correctly.  Seriously you can google it, but before you do, consider this:

We have some other notable mentions of our ABC’s. Just those three letters have such potential and for different people, professions and obsessions, they are an abbreviation for various matters.

For some folks, ABC stands for “Anything But Chardonnay,” while for those in the medical industry, ABC denotes “Airway Breathing and Circulation.” And for you deal makers out there, “Always Be Closing”– you know what I’m talking about. 

And shoppers the world over know that online or in the brick and mortar houses, in one form or another we’ve got to “Always Bring Cash.”

And I could never forget everybody’s favorite gum–you know the one that’s “Already Been Chewed.”

So here’s the deal.

The clock is one of the oldest human inventions and at midnight on December 31, 2019, this big beautiful thing chimed in a new decade. A DECADE!!! I think we all want to to jump into this new decade with the intention of making these years our roaring twenties. We’re pondering new horizons and expanding our territories–even if that just means learning how to self-love and create daily rituals that will make us feel better. My sister and co-blogger Dana shared a post yesterday about resolutions and promises we make and fail to keep. It is challenging indeed. 

I just want to tell you this: if you fall off the resolution wagon, don’t beat yourself up by trying to make up for it doing a 14 day cleanse in 4 hours and ten minutes. Whether you’ve made long term resolutions or have decided to take it all day by day, remember this: above all believe in yourself, have no doubt, have no fear and no matter what you do or where you go to do it, 

 Always Be Courageous. 

Don’t hold back! Make these your roaring twenties!

P.S.: What does the clock do when it’s hungry? It goes back four seconds.
