Are you ready to dress up?

There is a moment in-between wearing your new clothes, and leaving your old clothes on the floor, where you are naked. It is a good thing because you don’t want to ruin the celebration that’s coming!

Recently I’ve had the 99 block of ‘Snakes and Ladders’ in my head: you know the one with the snake that strips you of your height and brings you back to block 2.

Now I have tried to figure out how #2 is a good thing/situation to be in… I think it’s because you get rid of all the excess and don’t collect as much stuff around you that you don’t need on your second rise to the top. To be mindful, smell the roses, appreciate people, stop and listen to the “I’m well, thank you”-answer…

I think that #99/#2 block combination gives you a second chance to do it all over again but more mindful, in the moment and balanced. What’s the rush for 100 anyway because then it’s game over while all the good people are still playing the game?

It is a second breath to check if ‘I’m okay’ for the race and doing what I’m supposed to be doing and not just carrying the load to 99…

So I think stripped is ok if you don’t buy real estate there and keep rolling for the future you are ready to dress for.

The Secret of my Success
lyrics @coolparadiso

V I might not be the best there is
Nor every skill possess
But I’m sure don’t lack the confidence
Thats the secret of my success

V They tell me what i cant do
I leave them all to guess
Ill do it my way anyway
Thats the secret of my success

C I wont ever let them get me down
I’ll continue to progress
Im bold and strong and confident
Thats the secret of my success

V if i believed all that i read
Or even acquiesce
But i believe in my own strength
Thats the secret of my success


V Im self contained and confident
All issues i’ll address
I take all problems head on
Thats the secret of my success

C I wont ever let them get me down
I’ll continue to progress
Im bold and strong and confident
Thats the secret of my success

V I don’t keep things inside of me
My feeling i Express
I tell people how i feel
Thats the secret of my success

V Im happy being who i am
I better not digress
Im i want to fight the good fight
Thats the secret of my success
