I found an incredible site the today through one of the *many* newsletters that I subscribe to.
Newsletters that I scan quickly each morning looking for something that inspires me, gives me something I can use, or will possibly make me “appear” intelligent and unique to others. I say “appear”, because if you get all my newsletters, then you’ve already read about my “new thought/idea/shiny thing” from my secret sources.
Right about now you might be saying to yourself, “That’s a lot of pressure to put on someone’s newsletter!”. But really, if it doesn’t inspire me, give me something I can use, or make me feel smarter/more unique, why would I take my precious time to read it?
This site made me stop. Laugh. Think. Laugh again. And imagine the possibilities…
Jane designs MERIT BADGES for Excellence In Life. The tagline: Life Is Hard. You Deserve A Merit Badge.
And you know what? Life *is* hard sometimes! Things don’t always go the way you planned them, and sometimes you have to punt or go with Plan B. Or C.
That being said, I want to take this time on the final day of February in the year 2013 to virtually award YOU with your first Merit Badge for Excellence in Life.
Badge No. 8 THE HEART – for giving a shit.
Just in case no one has thanked you today for just being you, please accept this Merit Badge as a small token of our collective esteem.
ps. It makes you want to drag out your old Girl Scout sash now, doesn’t it? (or as my Nana used to say, my *sashay*)
