I Am My Own Biggest Fan

OK, it's confession time. I am a HUGE narcissist. I mean, obviously I think I'm the greatest, better than your boyfriend, etc. But at least that is all true beyond any doubt.

What I'm talking about today is different. I am my biggest fan. If I make a new song, I will listen to it for at least 24 hours on repeat. Often times I listen on my computer, then play it in the bathroom while I take a shower. When I'm in front of the mirror I lip sync and dance to my own music, imagining that I am performing it. Then after my shower I listen to it in the car while I drive.

Is this normal? Or at least healthy?

The Empowering Feeling of Taking Immediate Action

On The Barely Shaky Baboon

Many times I'll get a great idea, and just think to myself "that's a good idea, I should do that". Then it's set to the side, put on a list, or just forgotten.

One day I had an idea for a video I wanted to create, it was going to be a video about my life to show to friends and family before I left for 2 years. I had the thought " that's a good idea, but I know myself, if I don't do this right now the likelihood of actually doing it will be less than 50%". I had time available so I just started working on it, and it came out great.

This experience taught me that there's no sense in waiting to act. There's no better time than the present. And it felt amazing because I actually did it. Which is very empowering.

Many times i don't think of the ramifications of planning to do something or even just saying I'm going to do it. It's kind of like a little promise to myself, and then when I don't do it I lose some self respect because the next time I think about doing something I'll remember that I didn't do the last thing I was going to do.

It's as if a friend tells you he's going to do something for you and then doesn't do it, but worse because I have no one to blame or scapegoat, it's all on me.
