Morning Pep Talk
Do you ever have to give yourself a pep talk?
Sometimes I do it before going into a job interview. (When I was jobless right after graduation, this happened a lot). I'd bump Lupe Fiasco's "The Show Goes On" basically the whole drive there, remind myself that I'm awesome and that a job's a job, and life is for joy, not jobs. Joy, not jobs.
I like Mindy Kaling's version of a pep talk...
"Sometimes you just have to put on lip gloss and pretend to be psyched."
Sometimes that's all you need to get through a day.
Remember this girl? She might be the most positive person on the planet, and I appreciate that. I could definitely take a cue from her. My favorite lines from her morning pep talk:
"I like my Allisons!"
How many Allisons do you have, kid?
"I can do anything good!!!!"
Yeah, girl. Get it girl.
"Look, I can be a sark!!!!!!!!!!"
You mean shark? Awesome. Me, too.
