This is (basically) the first post I ever wrote for this space. A year ago. One of two that made an appearance before I abandoned ship. Alas me mateys, the booty is back and ready to go so, here, once again, is the intro to FAIL.

Hello!  Welcome!  So… yes.  Nothing should be done half-ass’ed.  I believe this in my very core. If you’re gonna cry, weep. If you’re gonna scream, lose your voice. If you’re gonna love, lose your mind. If your head and heart (and ass!) aren’t fully there, why bother? I pondered the term “balls to the wall” but, seeing as I’m female and lacking balls…

But ass… I’ve got plenty of that 🙂

I am a fan of acronyms.  Full Ass Intentional Living. FAIL. Robert F. Kennedy once said, “Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.” So dare with your whole ass, fail with your whole ass, and learn from those failures with your whole ass and then whole-assedly achieve!

Best-selling author Denis Waitley said, “Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.”  I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of being nothing. I’m tired of being a half ass human.

This idea, name, everything, came to me in the shower this morning. (Isn’t that where all good ideas strike? Maybe that is why my water bill is so high. Maybe I should full ass commit to quickie showers?) I am keeping my fingers crossed that I will put that full ass intentional commitment into this project.

I want to incorporate challenges into this at some point. So I will always be open to ideas. What are things you’ve half-assedly attempted, only to fizzle out?  Or, flip side, what things have you put your whole ass into and achieved greatly?
