That’s right folks. Today’s post is all about CHARISMA. What is CHARISMA you ask?
noun: charisma; plural noun:charismata
compelling attractiveness or charm that can inspire devotion in others.
“she enchanted guests with her charisma”
“he lacks the charisma we look for in our salespeople”
a divinely conferred power or talent.
but THAT’S not the one I’m talking about. The CHARISMA I speak of is a funny, honest gent…and you really need to check out his blog DonCharisma.org. It’s worth it.
Ok, so why about CHARISMA? He wrote a post the other day that hit home with me…it’s about why I’m doing what I’m doing on here…..not for fame, fortune or what have you…but for pure fun, to make someone smile, or laugh! If I can do that in one day then my day is set.
Why can’t we just make that our daily mindset? Why do we have to conform? Or do “whatever it takes to fit in?” Which brings me to another lemming…
I have a friend…we will call him Steve (of course that’s not his real name duh duh) He’s been having troubles in finding a woman that would want to stay around for more than 3 months. He say’s “well I have to change because obviously what I’m doing is not working ” I simply asked him..”What do you mean? You just haven’t found the right girl yet?” He later admitted to be that he started drinking just because “its not accepted that I don’t drink” and now he’s losing weight and running “because maybe if I’m thinner I’ll be accepted and find a girl that will want to stick around” This about threw me through the goddamn roof! Are you kidding me????? I yelled at him and said, “If someone can’t accept you at what you think is your worst then they don’t deserve you at your best!” Period, point blank, end of story!
Yeah…He still didn’t see it…and doesn’t agree with my ‘don’t change for someone else change for you theory” Eh…to each his own…I’m tiring of hearing the bastard whine and cry all the time because he’s not getting laid. Maybe this IS what he needs. I just can’t understand trying alcohol and losing the weight and running just because he want’s to be cool…he’s not 17…he’s 3-fucking-4!!!
Grr…I will stop. I told him…you need to acquire and work on your charisma…but yeah…he’s still not listening…I tried, world, good lawd knows I freaking tried.
I swear he might still be 17 mentally though…because right after that he’s trying to convince me to take my pants off for him…ugh…MEN!!!!!
And lastly, my Ode to CHARISMA! A picture entitled “Nessie”
I’m sorry for my randomness ya’ll…but that’s what it’s like living in my world…now picture all that going on at once while thinking about what’s for dinner and what I’m going to wear to an even 3 weeks from now for Damsel In Defense 😉 Yup…I’m special….
ok…in all seriousness now. Charisma is what it takes to make it in this world anymore. Without charisma and maybe the dare to be an individual we are all just lemmings…I don’t want to be a lemming…they die by jumping off cliffs.
Love you all!
