Nutritional Wisdom with Carly Pollack

FEEL FRIGGIN’ FANTASTIC

I sent my parents a porn # by accident

I wish this weren't true. How, do you ask, did I wind up sending out a wedding invitation with a phone number that connected my guests to a live pornographic sex chat instead of the hotel reservations line? I swapped the last two numbers by mistake.

I. Am. Not. Kidding. A friend of mine was the first to tell me. I thought he was joking so I completely dismissed it. Then my cousin emailed me and said "you MUST call that number." As soon as she mentioned it, a sinking feeling set in that my friend's dumb joke may have not been a joke at all. I held my breath, called the number, and hear a woman on the other side talking nonsense about a "hot steamy bulge." Mortification sets in about a half a second later and I am frozen, holding my phone to my ear, with absolutely no clue how to fix this.

Immediately I go through the inventory of all my parent's well respected friends whom I invited to the most special event in my life. Oh shit: my poor Aunt Hinda. I soon realized that the damage was out there. I could crawl into a hole and die but I couldn't change the number or take back the invitation. So... there was nothing to do but laugh (since I would never dirty my outfit crawling into a hole). 

You are probably wondering why I wouldn't want to cut my losses and bury this mishap in the world of most embarrassing mistakes. Instead, I'm outting myself to thousands of my Wisdom Seekers. I have valid reasons to do so:

1. It is my job to spread laughter and if you are having a rough day, I would like you to picture my 73 year old aunt calling to reserve her lagoon suite and being unpleasantly surprised... you're welcome.

2. NO ONE IS PERFECT. That's right, we areall imperfect works in progress.                                                                                                                                                                                              

I once learned the difference between healthy striving and perfectionism and it changed the way I view myself and the world. Healthystriving is when you wake up everyday and ask yourself:"how can I improve?" On the other hand, perfectionism asks the question: "what will others think?" 

Perfectionism turns us into rigid beings, our lives dictated by the outside world view and our happiness dependent on external circumstances. It creates a black and white behavior pattern - you may know it as the "tap out" button. If you can't be perfect, screw it. Right? Might as well eat 10 brownies if you are going to eat them at all.

Striving allows you to make mistakes, learn from them, and grow into the enlightened human beings we all want to be. I will learn to double check the phone numbers, and perhaps you can try being a little easier on yourself today

So hot stuff, if you are looking for a good time... call Jackie, and she will book you an appointment. ;) Or you can call this number: 1-888-767-3699
