becoming the magician

Things are gearing up for the Piscean Princess Extravaganza — aka…my birthday. Pretty much my favorite day week month of the year — because I’m sort of in to me.

My tarot card for this year (covers the year from birthday to birthday) is The Magician — which is all about the ability to make. shit. happen. Although there is a ton (a tonne!) of work and growth happening behind the scenes here— I’ve been a little disappointed in the tangible growth for myself and my business in 2014 thus far. But as the 28th approaches — I can literally feel the momentum building. It’s a little scary, in the good way.

So understandably, the dominant emotion at the moment is complete overwhelm. Last week I described my brain as a ninja maniac (that likes to chase Squirrel!). My head is so filled with ideas and projects and things I want to accomplish — that it’s been almost impossible to capture them in any retrievable format and create a plan to follow through consistently. I’ve downloaded planners and workbooks and project management apps — but so far nothing fits. So I continue to live in the land of Post-It Notes. (Buuut, I think I may have found a ridiculously fun + magical solution to tame the overwhelm that will be completely customizable…hoping to be able to share that with you next week.)

Anyways…back to the Piscean Princess Extravaganza, shall we.

The personal work I’m doing for myself right now is requiring me to constantly step out of my comfort zone — basically to blow up the damn thing. Living outside my comfort zone basically means being a little scared and a little uncomfortable all the time — which is nothing like lying on the beach in Cabo drinking Mexican Monkeys. Nothing.

But some pretty amazing stuff happens when you let yourself be uncomfortable — and before you know it…that’s your new comfortable.

My birthday is usually quite fancy — but this year it’s completely outside the comfort zone and involves checking off several bucket list items. (I’m the Magician. I get shit done. My new creed.)

Piscean Princess Extravaganza

 Here’s the PPE Plan so far:

1) Major hair make-over later this week — there will be pink involved

2) Solo road trip to a new city with very little agenda

3) Watching the sunrise on Santa Monica Beach (and then diving straight in to the ocean — no tippy toe-ing)

4) Having a cocktail at SUR lounge (of Real Housewives/ Vanderpump Rules fame — Hi, I’m Lisa and I’m addicted to the Real Housewives of Anywhere.)

(That’s my hipster beach-front pad…complete with silver hipster cruiser bike above. Renting a room in a lovely Aussie chap’s condo — if you know me, you know I’m pretty attached to my space…so this is a complete 180 from my usual travel MO)

Every item on this list scares the shit out of me.

That must mean I’m on the right track.

    This sounds positively dreamy. You’re gonna love it, Shit-Gets-Done Magician! Can’t wait to hear how it works out and, more important, what shenanigans occur.

  4. Sounds positively, explosively fab-u-lous! (Starting most especially with the pink hair. If only I were brave enough. But then, back in the 80’s when I was respectably aged for that sort of thing I did a different cellophane tint each month and taught school that way.) We are blowing our noisemakers and shaking our pompoms for this party to commence!
