Most days start off with a cup of coffee and an endless todo list for the Buzzed Badger + my personal life. So much has happened since my last post early January… Bought a house, selling a house, planning a non-profit, figuring out how to roast coffee, learning how to ride a bike trainer without spotters, attending my sister-in-law’s beautiful wedding, my parents are visiting (the living room is half painted w/ no furniture in the house),…..oh the list goes on and on.
So, in saying that, the body transformation in November I was quite excited to start was not followed through – only completed 4 weeks. I will use my own saying… You will do what is most important to you. Having a “10” body is definitely low on my priority list. This year has been exciting already and so full of fun, 3 hour workouts have been squeezed out. Started saying “yes” only to things I am 100% excited for. “Doin’ what you wanna” takes courage. Someone asked me why did we choose the name”Buzzed Badger” for our coffee shop. It is simple, Courage. The old “Crazy Nastyass Honey Badger” video from 2011 has always made me laugh. But more than anything it made me question…Why aren’t I a lot more like that? He is resilient, ambitious, and fearless. I am already the first 2 things by nature, but I lived in fear. Fear of disapproval. Fear of failure. Fear of sounding too black. Fear of not being black enough. Fear of being too aggressive. Fear of being too submissive…Everyone has their own list of fears. But establishing the coffee shop was one of the first big statements to myself to prove I can be the Honey Badger. And why not go through life “buzzed” off my first vice, caffeine?
It’s never too late to start a new outlook on life. Take a little time out of your day to think about your outlook. Do you like it?
If you do, embrace it!
If you don’t, change it!
