Something New – We Got A Little Behind

April 17, 2011 by Darlene McC

TWO WEEKS BEHIND!  Shame on me…  How did I get two weeks behind!?

Oh, right.  I was out living my life and doing new things and got a bit… distracted from blogging.  I’m going to do a few batches to get caught up:

Something New #43 – Make 3 miles!

As I mentioned in Something New #22, I’m training for a 5k.  Last Saturday, for the first time in as long as I can ever remember/ever in my adult life I ran 3 miles without stopping.  At the time I was 3 weeks from my first 5k, and as of yesterday there were 2 weeks to go.  Totally going to make it!

Something New #44 – First Rehearsal for A New Play!

I’m excited to say that I’ve been cast in my first Off Broadway play!  Last Sunday was our first rehearsal and my first time at The Network Studios for rehearsal.  The Play?

There’s been a bit of confusion about the name, but my script calls it Carbon Based Life Form Seeks Similar.  We’re performing as part of the Notes From the Underground Festival produced by Curan Repertory Theatre the last week of April, and I can’t wait.

The Notes From the Underground Festival is a festival of original short plays; ours a new work by Andrew Biss, and it’s excellent.  It has a lot of depth that isn’t immediate at first blush and I’m loving rehearsing it.  I really hope Andrew makes it up to our show.

Something New #45 – Had Someone Else Do My Taxes

I’m a pretty self sufficient woman; but this year our taxes were beyond my ability to deal… so I let someone else deal with them.  I was really anxious about it, party because it’s my money and partly because I consider myself pretty good at dealing with these types of things and I was worried I’d be proven wrong.  The woman I went to was really kind and helpful and I left feeling like I do, in fact, still know what I’m doing.

Something New #46 – Roller Bladed Through Midtown

Umm, and I did it during rush hour.  It was awesome.  Don’t tell my mom.

There will be a picture to follow, promise.

Current mood: 🦄 No makeup 🐉 No hair color 🦅 No negative self-talk 🛌 Just a girl on her bed, feeling her own vibes. .. .. Magical creatures don't have to change themselves to work magic, they just 💫ARE💫 magic. Know who else is magic? 👏every 👏one 👏of 👏us. . . We are each a unique combination of skills, experiences, and interests that has never happened before. and will never happen again. That means whatever you have to contribute to the world can only come from you... and hiding means you're depriving the world of your contributions...and isn't that just selfish?🤔😉 . . So step up! Step out! How are you going to pull your weight this week? . #selfie #sundaymorning #deepthoughtswithcoachdar #curlygirl #curlyhair #bighair #backtobed #dreamcatcher
The axiom "don't meet your heroes" does not apply to @angeladuckw - what a delight it was to get to be her student! . . We use our heroes to bring out better versions of ourselves. To model the things we don't know if we're capable of. Angela modeled the kind of instructor I want to be: comfortable, funny, humble, curious, and geez is she smart! . . When have you met someone you admire who exceeded your expectations and what did you learn from them? . . #characterlab #grit #gritparagon #angeladuckworth #hero #meetyourhero #tt #throwbackthursday
How are you keeping yourself in balance? (and helping those you love to do the same?) ... So often now we hear about work/life balance - I think there's more to it than that. What about the balance of screen to sleep? Group and solo time? A balanced diet? Each of us has different needs to consider; but we're presented with information as if there's a "right" way. ... ⚖ How do you keep yourself in balance? ⚖ Where do you struggle to? ⚖ What questions come to mind when you like about juggling all the elements in your life? ... #worklifebalance #deepquestions #findbetterquestions #balance #lunaalignmentyoga #acroyoga #balance #yoga #beach #beachlife #legsfordays ... 🧘‍♀️ with me is @alliolson23 | we were studying at @luna_alignment_yoga with @talswissa |
Going into Monday like 🥊🦁 . . We've all got beasts to wrestle. Things we want to accomplish that seem to big; or inner struggles that are overwhelming. You have to believe you can do it before it becomes possible; and likely struggle before it's done. . . Step up and get after it. What beast will you tackle today? Hit up some comments... mine is below 👇 . . #eatthefrog #getafterit #lion #wrestleyourdemons #roar

2019 you threw me for a few loops ➰➰ . I broke 2 teeth and some of my self limiting beliefs. 🤓 . I got a new car 🚗, (only) 1 black eye #bjj , and into the grad program of my dreams: Penn's Master's in Applied Positive Psychology 📚 . Some of my projects flew, and some of them failed; all of them taught me important lessons. 🤔 . I helped clients grow, change, get lean, gain self awareness and confidence. And they grew me as a coach and human being. . Coach @meganhellerer suggests in her end of year post that we name the year. 2018 was all about breaking down... 2019 is The Year That Built Me Up. 🥳 . Take a page from Megan's book: what would you name your year? Share in the comments 👇 (and follow Megan. She's a boss.) . . #2019lessons #lookingback #building #penn @uofpenn @pennsas #pennmapp #mapp15 #reflection #buildingup #nameyouryear #legsfordays #curlyhairdontcare #curlygirl
