The 90s is my favorite decade of all-time.
Of course, I’ve only experienced two complete decades since I’m in my 20’s but that’s beside the point. Even when I’m old and grey, I know I’ll still look fondly on that golden decade.
Firstly, my childhood idol, Aaliyah, was ultra hot in the 90s. I still vividly remember swooping my straightened bangs to one side, putting on sunglasses, and singing in the mirror FOR hours, pretending I was her. (“Let me see you goooo back, back, forth and forth! Oooooo, alright! Let me see you go…”)
Secondly, that fashion was CRAZY (in a good way!) in the 90s. Women got to wear everything from boxy-shouldered power suits to huge door-knocker earrings to Tommy Hilfiger boxers…all while sporting Timberland boots and a half-shirt.
Thirdly, the 90s was home to the most hilarious slang and phrases. From “she’s all that and a bag of chips” to “talk to the hand!” (that was a favorite of mine to use on my little sister), people in the 90s said everything better.
One 90s phrase I’m on a crusade to bring back is “Don’t talk about it, be about it!”
I love that phrase not just because it’s ridiculously fun to say (try it!) but because it speaks to a personal movement going on in my own life.
As I work harder and harder on my goals, I’m constantly having to remind myself to stop talking about all the things I want to do “someday” and to just go out there and do!
One goal in particular that I finally stopped talkin’ ’bout so I could be about it is my first ever Think & Grow Chick event. For MONTHS I told anyone who would listen how I really wanted to launch my first event, but I couldn’t bring myself to DO it! I didn’t want to admit it, but deep down I was still making excuses simply because I was scared!
A few weeks ago, I bit the bullet and took the steps necessary to make my dream of launching my first event a reality. In short, I stopped talking ’bout it so I could be about!
Since we are now 3 days away from my big event (details at the end of this post), I thought it be fun to record a little “not podcast” sharing how I overcame my fear + my 5 best tips on how you can stop talkin’ ’bout it so you can be about it! Listen below: [Read more...]
