I’m Just Serious

Take ownership.

I heard someone use that phrase the other day, and I instantly thought that I need to add that to my personal lexicon. Too many people say, “I’m just kidding” as a sort of get out of jail free card. It’s a way of saying, “Yes, I said that shocking thing, but I didn’t really mean it, and should in no way be held responsible for it.”

That’s a wimpy way to talk your way through life. Grow up. Take ownership. Curate your words carefully and then stand by them. Lean into your thoughts and opinions. Embrace them. Be authentic. Let people know who you are.

I’m just serious.

Why is this cute dog here? Because his was the most serious face I could find. Sorry Dude. You’re being used.

  1. I try to. But I am so bloody tired of this @#$%^&* heat and this @#$%^&* smoke and not being able to open the @#$%^&* window and the air outside doesn’t even @#$%^&* taste right and it’s over 80 @#$%^&* degrees *inside* and being caught between the @#$%^&* who don’t believe in climate change and the @#$%^&* who just say we are all doomed as if there’s nothing anyone can do, and I have to keep telling them “the resourceful ones will be all right, and and we can make @#$%^&* sure we are in that category.” I’m just @#$%^&* serious.
