images (4)

The 17th task of 50 Weeks to a Lighter More Loving You is to GO WITH THE COWLICK!!!

cow·lick:   a lock of hair that grows in a direction different from the rest and that resists being combed flat.


I have a cowlick!  To be accurate, I have three!

I’m sure if I had grown out my bangs, which I never have, I wouldn’t have spent as much time and energy trying to get them to lie flat or make my bangs stay together! On rare occasions, with much hairspray, I can get my bangs to look like straight, full bangs for about 30 minutes!

The thing is…I will ALWAYS have the cowlicks!

Eventually, after many a year, I gave up and just WENT WITH THE COWLICKS!!

What in your life goes in a different direction than what you’d like?

What will you ALWAYS have, but are trying to FIX?

Is it something with your…

  • Body?
  • Work or Career?
  • Child?
  • Spouse?
  • Home?
  • Life?

Where are you spending a lot of time with very little or no change?

This week GO WITH THE COWLICK…the thing you can not change or is resisting change. The thing that JUST IS!

Let yourself off the hook of straightening it out, of battling it, of fighting for it to be exactly the way you want.

Does that mean you totally give up?  Maybe!!!

  • Maybe it’s time to regroup and gain some knowledge.
  • Maybe it’s time to try something else or go in a different direction.
  • Maybe it’s time to seek some help.
  • Maybe it’s time to give something the heavy-ho.
  • Maybe it’s time to quit!

MAYBE IT’S TIME TO ACCEPT IT THE WAY IT IS!

Cheering Yon On to a Whole GO WITH THE COWLICK Heart,

CHECK IN for Week 16: SUPER-CALI-FRAGI-LISTIC-EXPI-ALI-Day

Checking in on Week 16‘s task of 50 Weeks to a Lighter More Loving You.

Your task was to WRITE OUT your SUPERCALIFRAGILISTICEXPIALIDIOUS (extraordinarily good and wonderful) DAY. It can be a past day or your dream day…or both!


Currently, signs that say,

“Today is a perfect day to have a perfect day!”

seem to be quite popular.   I see them everywhere!

Wondering if PERFECT DAY is the same as a SUPERCALI…etc. Day?  I think so!


One of the words in a thesaurus for PERFECT is AUTHENTIC!

What do you think of when you think of this word AUTHENTIC?

  • real
  • whole
  • true
  • trustworthy
  • pure
  • ?

In Week 16’s blog I said that writing out your SUPERCALI…etc. days will help find keys to a lighter, more loving you.

What may be discovered is that those best, perfect, awesome, wonderful days are when you are truly yourself, when you are AUTHENTIC, REAL, TRUE TO YOU.

This is living…

  • from what you value,
  • from what you are about,
  • from what you truly believe,
  • when you do what you say you will do,
  • when you trust yourself,
  • when you choose love over fear,
  • when your best self comes through.

This can be done while relaxing on the beach with your pina colada or when attending your best friend’s funeral.    SUPERCALI…ect. days aren’t always “happy”.  They can still be AUTHENTIC, PERFECT, EXTRAORDINARILY GOOD and WONDERFUL.

Review what you wrote in regards to your SUPERCALI…etc. day(s).  Can you see some of your values?  What is authentic, true and your “best self” coming through in that day(s)? Feel free to share in the comments!

Cheering You on to a WHOLE SUPERCALI…etc. AUTHENTIC HEART,

su·per·ca·li·fra·gil·is·tic·ex·pi·a·li·do·ciouS:

What would your SUPERCALIFRAGILISTICEXPIALIDOCIOUS DAY look like?

Have you had a SUPERCALI…etc Day? What made it so extraordinary to you?

Take time this week and write out your extraordinarily good and wonderful day. It can be a past day or your dream day…or both!

  • When would you wake?
  • What would you eat?
  • What would you do?
  • Who would you be with?
  • How would you feel?
  • How would you be BEING?

Write out as much detail as possible.


I’ve had many SUPERCALI…etc Days.   All have been so different, but there have been certain elements that have been the same.

Writing out your past or dream extraordinarily wonderful days will help you find YOUR KEYS to a lighter more loving you.

Would love to hear what your SUPERCALI…etc. Day looks like.  Feel free to share!

Cheering You on to a Whole Extraordinarily Wonderful Heart,
