Surviving the urge to kick someone’s ass is not the title I wanted for this article. I actually wanted to use “Surviving the Urge to Kill Someone”, then I realized that might a little too over-the-top as a title. I started over. I used “Surviving the Urge to Beat the Shit Out of Someone” and even though I really wanted to use it, I thought about it and came up with “Surviving the Urge to Kick Someone’s Ass”. It’s a little kinder and gentler I suppose.
After all I do have an image to uphold and the urge to kill or beat someone is probable not the image I want people to have of me when this article gets indexed by Google.
Let’s get real though, we have all been angry enough to think those words at some time in our lives. We may have even said them out loud. Thankfully though most of us are reasonable people who don’t act on our thoughts and we rationally understand that thinking or even saying things like that are an outward or inward explosion of feelings that make us feel better after we say or think them.
Having the urge to kick someone’s ass is different. I don’t actually want to walk up to them and kick them into the next county for example. I just want to do something that makes them say “Crap I did not see that one coming!” I want to catch them off guard, by surprise and yes blindside them with an action/idea/happening that kicks them square in the ass. Some might see this as a friendly competition when they think this, but I am here to clearly say for me this is NOT a friendly competition. This is not just about kicking someone’s ass for me, it is about kicking it hard enough to make it difficult for them to get back up completely. It is about me winning and doing the dance in the end zone of life. I promise no one will actually be physically hurt . I am past that feeling (she says with a wink). No really I am. I even re-worded a certain board in my Pinterest account because I no longer want to bitch slap this person (she says with another wink).
So today, as I was in the shower, my plan came together. Showers are more than cleansing the body, showers can cleanse the mind too. I believe that this all worked out for me because timing is everything and I seriously believe there are no accidents.
I recently attended a big social media event that was running over with the biggest thought leaders in social media. I absorbed so much but put a lot of it on the back burner to simmer. This morning the pot boiled over and the answer to a question that had been bugging me for 9 months was born. I finally know how to get past the urge to kick someone’s ass and actually do it.
I seriously promise this will all be done fairly and no blood will be shed (she says with a wink). No really I promise.
Have to run now and start working on this project – it’s so exciting!
