B Game is good... C Game is decent effort; D Game is nearly game-over for me. But A Game... oooh, A Game is the manifestation of our full attention, best efforts and full tilt boogie as regards personal style and finesse. A Game is what we do when we give a shit... it's what we do when we want it.
Crazy as it may sound, this photo depicts my A Game. It was late afternoon on Thanksgiving; I'd spent the entire day cooking and creating what I must say was a pretty stellar holiday meal and experience. The house looked and smelled good. The food was delicious, everyone was smiling. I'd given and done my best - and it showed, everywhere I looked. I can also see, in this pic, that I've been working my ASS OFF in terms of nutrition and fitness. Loved my outfit. Was wearing a glass cheetah "J" necklace I picked up over the summer on 42nd Street while in NYC for three back-to-back book signings. Had on a fabulous - no, fierce, pair of shoes. Had on my favorite (hard to find!) perfume, was sipping my favorite wine. Felt muy *•｡☂Sexxy•Licious☂｡•* .
I think I'll always refer to this pic when I want to remind myself how important it is to give mind, heart, body and soul to every single thing I do. I think I'll always look at this pic when I feel I'm swerving off my path or slipping just a little bit. I can't let myself down... or those I care about. And I'll be damned if I don't live up to my full potential or relentlessly pursue my desires. Because at the end of the day... how can we smile before nodding off to sleep or release a sigh of contentment at the end of our days, if we haven't done all that we can, every chance we have? To that end - understanding and mastering the art of the A Game is vital.
We can apply this to relationships, career, goals, passions, personal choices, parenting... Everything, really. What'cha think?
