This was one of those weekends I’m glad to have behind me. Too many calories, too little exercise, not enough sleep, and nothing significant accomplished on the to-do list. Basically, I was 0-for-4.
I have those weekends from time to time, and generally, I’m okay with it. As long as it doesn’t become a pattern, that is, and I really don’t see that happening here. This past weekend was a collision of the sort of last-minute pet-sitting gig, the all day BarCamp meeting on Saturday, and too-tired-to-do-much-of-anything on Sunday. Added to the crazy schedule I had last week with contract jobs, it left me feeling off-kilter, and not in an entirely good way.
So this week is all about the return of Street-Fighter Cammy!
Not everyone is as fortunate as I am to have an actual action figure (available on eBay for $38.88) to call upon for inspiration, but people named ‘Cammy’ do. I’m not wild about the thong or the overly idealized, sexist physical image, but what can you expect from a character in a video game targeted to men?
According to the CammyFan page, Street-Fighter Cammy has many personality characteristics:
“moodiness, strength, bravery, sadness, stubbornness, rebelliousness, humor, intelligence, sense of duty, toughness, love of cats, and most importantly… her desire to be the best, and to fight on no matter what the odds.”
Hmmm, remarkably like me. I don’t really desire to be THE best, but I do want to be MY best. That requires a little more planning and a lot more toughness than I showed this past weekend. And, of course, a sense of humor never hurts.
I believe we all have an inner warrior (although perhaps not listed on eBay) that we can use to work through adversity. If you had one of those weekends, I hope you’re able to dig deep today and fight on. Being OUR best is a debt of honor we owe ourselves. We deserve it!
What aspect of your personality can you use to summon your inner street-fighter?
Me? I’m getting stubborn.
