After spending my second month being functionally homeless, living somewhere between a series of guest rooms and my car, I splurged on a last minute trip back home to smoosh my neice's face. I was casually sipping my airport margarita and passing through the bookstore, when I made eye contact with "Get Your Sh*t Together" for the first time.
My first reaction was to yell "don't tell me what to do!" and clutch my boozy sippy cup to my chest. But the subtitle won me over. I *do* kinda wanna do stuff...
I read the first 100 pages before I got to my parents' house. That sh*t sounded easy. I have that sh*t together. I love my job, my emails are brief, I know how long it takes me to shower and shave (8-12 minutes, depending on my vertical cut-off point).
That night, I tore into the tough sh*t. And let me tell you, it is some tough sh*t. Money? Relationships? Achk. DONT MAKE ME DO THIS, SARAH. But I kept reading. Because, c'mon. You spent $20 dollars on this thing. It's just a book. Who raised you?
So I stayed up until about 3:00 am. Most of that spent reading, but at least an hour spent staring at the ceiling fan and thinking about page 160.
I finished the book on my flight back to my current "home" this morning. Between the time spent with my family and reading this book, this weekend has been life changing. I am going into the next few weeks knowing that I can get sh*t done, as long as I break it down into manageable pieces. Step, by step. Moving toward what's best for me, so I can finally get my sh*t together.
