Haters Gonna Hate. Potatoes Gonna Potate.

The other day I was on the phone with a client who heard the protests outside my window and asked where I was. When I told her, she yelled, “OHMYGOD you’re INSANE!” In a very disapproving tone, she said, “Why are you in a different country every time I talk to you?!?”

For a second my mind went into a terrible spiral of negativity. Is she right? Am I insane? What is this crazy life I’m living? Who the hell do I think I am?

Then in the next breath she was telling me about how she still has to commute in the “wintry mix” because of, I gathered, office politics. And I thought, who’s the insane one now? Then I told her to go play in traffic. And now she’s not my client any more.

Kidding about the last part. But seriously. Enough with the lifestyle hate, ok?

  1. Hmmm… perhaps your own questioning of your lifestyle made you hear a disapproving tone? Perhaps the tone was really jealousy?! Awe?! Total incomprehension at the cool, boldness of it all? That’s what I think the tone really was … that’s what mine will be on our next client call. xo
