“You know I’m not about that life.”
I heard this apparently “hip” phrase from one of my clients. Her teenage kids tell her that it’s the “word on the street.” I think I’m out of the loop.
Groovy. (sorry, couldn’t resist).
Perhaps the kids these days are on to something. It happens.
Often we say, do or choose something that is not reflective of our best self
We’re discouraged about our weight, yet grab that bag of chips. We’re over scheduled and stressed, but skip our workout and opt to surf Facebook instead. We complain about our dead end job, but are too scared to register for that course at the Community College which could be the first step toward a new career.
What life ARE you about?
At first I laughed when this client shared the phrase, but it continues to pop into my head even at the most mundane moments.
For example (TMI alert), getting dressed the other morning I pulled out a very old ratty pair of panties (come on, you know you have a pair!).
“You KNOW you’re not about that life, ” I thought, “I’m too good for these.” And I promptly threw them in the trash.
Whether it’s the little choices, or the BIG ones. YOU decide.
What life ARE YOU about?
