Friday is often greeted with relief as the “end” of the week; that somehow we “made it through” and can now enjoy the weekend. Except for appointments, I rarely look at my calendar for the simple reason that living my life with passion makes every day of the week special. So, it doesn’t matter what letters precede ‘day.’ The same with watches. Peter Fonda told the bikers in Wild Hogs to ‘lose the watches’ and there’s a lot to be said about that. Now, don’t get me wrong. I’ve never missed a meeting. In fact, I’m characteristically early. Probably because any meeting important enough for me to attend has got to have value. But, the only time that matters to me is the moment I’m in and what am I doing in that moment to take me further on my journey. If Monday isn’t as exciting as Saturday and Wednesday is nothing more that the hump to get past than check your passion gauge. Fuel up your life on hi-test and lose the ’87.’ Life is a ride and we should all be heading for an outrageously wonderful destination.

Do you want to suggest a guest for Garrison to interview on DESIGN YOU radio?
We’d like to hear from you:
American singer and multi-instrumentalist Stephen Stills, best known for his work with Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, released the lead single from his debut self-titled studio album in 1970. The song, inspired by a remark Stills heard from musician Billy Preston became his biggest hit single peaking at No. 14 on the Billboard Hot 100 in early 1971.
The title of the song is a mantra for everyone reinventing themselves to live their destiny: Love The One You’re With. And, no one is more important in this life than YOU. As Stephen himself said, “Once you decide that it is the art that is important and not how popular and well received you are, you no longer have an albatross. “ Make your life your work of art.
“You have to be yourself. Be very honest about who and what you are. And if people still like or love you, that’s great. If they don’t, that’s their problem. Be yourself, no matter what they say. ” Sting
All the well-intentioned voices in your head-parents, teachers, coaches, employers, colleagues, friends, significant others-should not be louder than your own voice. Listen to your heart for that’s where you’ll hear the most important message about where your life should be headed.
The next Farmington DESIGN YOU Meetup will be Thursday, April 13th at 7pm at The Universalist Church, 433 Fern Street, 2nd floor lounge, West Hartford, CT. This is a one-time meeting location change after which we will return to the Farmington Library every other week. BE SURE TO RSVP
