Thoughts From My Bathtub (resolutions?)

If I'm sure about anything about myself, its that I am a wet thinker. A water thinker. Okay. Hold on. Let me explain. I've always been a creative person whether I'm writing, drawing, painting...I'm always making a mess. I've found throughout the years that my best ideas come to me in the shower or bathtub. It's kinda strange to be honest with you. I'm in the shower all alone, reading the shampoo bottle for the hundredth time, minding my own business and BAM! It hits me. An idea for a drawing, that awesome line for that story I've been working on...whatever. I've even had to get out of the shower before to write down ideas, they've been so fabulous.  Like I said, I'm a water thinker.

So today I was chillin' in the tub, idly wondering what sets bubble bath bubbles apart from normal bubbles when it hit me.   You see, lately I've been focusing a lot on where I am, where I want to be by the end of the year... Goals, basically. I believe this was initially influenced by all the "new year, new me" nonsense everyone was posting a month ago. I've always been a goal setter, a list maker, a planner. It's keeps me sane.

But my question is why? Why do we wait for January to make "resolutions"? Now I'm gonna let you in on a little secret, folks. Resolution is basically a fancy way of saying you are setting goals for yourself to meet throughout the coming year. And guess what? You can do that all. Year. Long.

Yeah, you heard (read?) me right. You don't have to wait for January. You can set a goal for yourself right now! Yes! I know its exciting. Calm down so I can finish. 

The beginning of the year is no better than July. Monday is no better than Wednesday. So decide what you want to do, or change, and commit to it. Do it today! Focus on being the best version of yourself. I know that sounds like some cheesy self help stuff, but its true, man.

For example, one of my goals is to post here on this little baby twice a week. So far I'm crushing it. This may be the first week, but I'm also a firm believer in rewarding hard work and effort.  At least, that's how I'm justifying the ice cream I'm eating as I type this.

The moral of this ramble? Think outside the box (or bathtub), set attainable goals throughout the year, and dont forget to reward yourself.

You go, Glen Coco.
