You’re out to dinner with a few friends and acquaintances. They’re oooohhhhing and ahhhing congratulating you on a recent accomplishment. How all that hard work and just plain smarts has paid off, and you graciously accept the compliment, but you find yourself thinking “If only they knew the real story.” You work on yourself pretty relentlessly, so while you do all the “right things” the gratitude lists, the “look on the bright side,” blah, blah blah, even eat quinoa more than once a week, you know something is off. You can, and you can’t really put your finger on it.
The weird thing is the “big” stuff in your life is pretty good, in fact, there're a lot of folks who would love to have your life, but it’s the “little things” that are nagging at you.
Your passion for excellence is quickly spiraling down to a relentless perfectionism, and nothing is ever good enough. You’re busy from morning to night, but not sure how much you really “accomplished.” You’re constantly comparing yourself to others, and you know how that ends up. Your level of stress makes your great “on paper” life feel almost like a chore. Maybe you’re hiding your "real self," afraid that if you start telling the truth, first to yourself, and then to others, that your friends and family members won't "like" you anymore. Or maybe you're at a crossroad, and you know you just can't keep doing the same ol' thing over and over.
In a way, it doesn't really matter why you're here, but rather THAT you're here.
I have one word. Welcome!
Smart Sexy TV is committed to YOU! To exploring the "little things" in life, like how to actually start thinking and feeling about ourselves, and our lives, how our BFF's and fans think about us. To stop putting "more" on our plate, but making choices on a daily basis that truly nourish us and enrich our lives.
And yes telling the truth more, first to ourselves about what does and doesn’t work in our lives, not beating ourselves up about it, but approach our lives with compassion and curiosity. BEST OF ALL, do something about it.
Having relationships that reflect the YOU that SPARKLES, not the “let me make sure they like me” you, which can put you on dimmers at best, and is soul-crushing at worst!
The great news… we don't have to get "all serious" about "working on ourselves." SMART SEXY TV is about turning our Ahas! into Hahas! where we can laugh and learn at the same time. After all, we're people not projects and we're up to fulfillment not fixing!
Even better news! - Since we're immersed in a "that was so 38 seconds ago" culture, the videos are brief (under 5 minutes), so you can jump in for a dose of drive by empowerment, or hang out and watch some past episodes.
I created Smart Sexy TV as a dialogue, not a monologue. I want to hear from you. Let me know something you need some support on or would like SSTV to address? How is SSTV useful for you? Please be part of the conversation, your input, thoughts, feelings and ideas matter to me.
