I’ve been going along with this mantra for ages. And the continuation of it being “… and it’s all small stuff.” has been a staple as well. It is all small stuff, I’m pretty sure of that now after 41 years on this earth. The problem I have, is I sweat all the time. Physically sweat, so, internally I always feel like I’m sweating all the stuff, big and small.
I don’t let that get me down these days though. I understand that the idea behind the insignificance of the annoyances of day to day life are just that. They are insignificant and annoying. Instead of piling on how frustrating it was to deal with soandso or how incredibly horrible (insert city here)’s drivers are, I just take a deep breath and let it all out.
While I might not be on a Peloton bike 24/7 like my wife is (exaggeration… kind of, but it’s her jam, I love her for it), I do pop on for classes in strength training from time to time. Doing so, I have become fond of something that Matty Maggiacomo says at the end of most workouts he hosts. While stretching and winding down, there is a better mantra than don’t sweat the small stuff to be had.
Inhale the Good Shit, Exhale the BullshitMatty Maggiacomo
Which is just a better Mantra. Combine it with Joey “Coco” Diaz, repeat after me.
Namaste Motherfuckers, Inhale the Good shit, Exhale the BullshitMe, I said that, by taking two different people’s things
I think this plays much better to me and my crowd. Who are fully aware of the world we live in, fully open to being completely themselves and authentic. Who truly want to better themselves and those they come in contact with.
So, I think, on this wonderful Monday, sweat or don’t sweat, up to you. (I’m sweating because that’s what I do). And remember that mantra and greeting.
In other news, holy shit is there some news coming up. I will do a quick little run down here and go a little deeper in a future post.
