EPIC

EPIC.

It seems like everything happening around me lately is EPIC. Dynamic, momentous, soul-moving, life changing, magical, dazzling, sparkling, really freaking awesome.

We’re all surrounded by events + ideas + actions of EPIC proportions. We just need to look + listen for them. And then appreciate them. Every single second of them.

Tunnel vision, getting stuck in a sticky rut, + self doubt are EPIC killers + totally a waste of precious (epic) energy. We’re not naive. We know that not everything is as good as it seems, but we listen to our intuition + assume best intentions. We follow our hearts + guts. And then we just GO. We follow epic paths to epic places, people, ideas, + events.

Perfect example of an EPIC event: BOSTON BITES BACK. 100 chefs + 5,000 changemakers @ Fenway raising $1 million for The One Fund. What makes it epic? Well, it was planned in 2 weeks + 100% of the proceeds are going to The One Fund. 100%. As in, every single dollar raised.

(What else is epic? Celebrating 3 graduations in 3 days, my sister getting published in Feminist Wire, my other sister getting a 100 on her stats final exam (HOW?!), one of my fav startups landing an incredible deal (!!!), WINE Club Boston’s Great Gatsby Premiere Party (+ all of the companies/people who came together to make it happen), kettlebell workouts (always), watching Les Miserables in NY w my bff + her beautiful family, making a new friend via a random “I think your blog rocks” email, + meeting a happy team of entrepreneurs focused on philanthropic travel).

Reflect about all of the EPIC pieces of your life! I bet they rock.

LOVE!
