5 things to include in your morning routine

5 things to include in your morning routine

I am all about FLOURISHING and being the best we can possibly be and a great way to set yourself on the path to flourishing is to start your day right!

Mornings are often a rush to beat the clock and get out the door but I’ve found that if I make the time and effort to start my day with intention, the rest of my day flows so much more smoothly than it would if I woke up and went through the motions, reacting to everything that happens around me!  Jim Rohn said it perfectly:

“Either you run the day, or the day runs you.”

Personally, I prefer to be in charge!

So, whether you’re lucky enough to be able to spare an hour for a daily morning routine or just 5 or 10 minutes, it’s well worth doing!

What can you include in your morning routine? Well, it really is down to you and your unique life. If you use my Born to Flourish planner-journal, you’ll have a page dedicated to crafting your very own morning routine, where you can list down the things you will do to start your day right 😊

If you’re stuck for ideas, here’s 5 things I always include in my own morning routine. Depending on how much time you have available and what’s important to you, you can pick and mix from these or make up your own!

1 | Meditation / Reflection / Gratitude

Whether its meditation, prayer or reflection, starting your day with this practice will help ground you and enable you to be more intentional and mindful. Even if it’s just for a minute or two, close your eyes and connect with your higher self. Be grateful for another day on earth, for all the things you have, no matter how small. Focus on all the positive things you have in your life – people, experiences, things. Remember that what you focus on expands, so choose to focus on the good, positive things in your life to attract more good, positive things in your life! This is a great time to visualise too. Visualise your day ahead, see yourself confidently achieving your goals, having a great day. I once read a book that recommended starting your day by thinking of ten things you’re grateful for and then seeking guidance for the day ahead. If this is the only thing you can manage as part of your morning routine, it will still make a huge difference to your day and your life!

2 | Journal

There’s something therapeutic and also powerful about putting your thoughts onto paper – whether it’s to clarify your thoughts, set your intentions for the day or simply offload all the clutter lurking in your mind to free up some space! Even if it’s just a sentence or two, depending on whether you’re much of a writer of not, write something down. Personally I prefer ‘proper’ writing over typing on a laptop or computer, simply because it feels more ‘real’ and it’s so much more effective actually writing your thoughts than bashing them out on a keyboard. Not to mention I lost a couple years’ worth of journalling when my laptop crashed a few years ago!

As you might know, through my love of journalling and planning, I created my own hybrid planner-journal, the Born to Flourish planner-journal, which has a page dedicated to each day and which contains prompts to help me set my intentions for my day ahead, tie those intentions to my bigger goals, explore my underlying thoughts and feelings and then, later in the day, reflect on whether I followed through with those intentions, any lessons I learned and how I might improve tomorrow. I have been using this planner-journal for years now and couldn’t live without it because it combines the practical planning and doing stuff along with the all important, but often overlooked, internal mindset stuff.

3 | Exercise

Probably not what everyone wants to be doing as soon as they get out of bed! But this is a great way to kick start your metabolism and your energy levels for the day ahead. I was never an exercise in the morning type of gal, and would do so in the evenings – usually when I was frazzled from my day – and to be fair it did still help me, but now that I exercise in the mornings, I feel so much better and it makes me feel really energised for the rest of my day (and also helps me get a good night’s sleep). It’s easy to think the other way round – I’m going to use up my energy exercising and be too tired to face my day! But no, quite the opposite 😊 Exercise energises you, gets the blood pumping, your mind mentally alert, which is a great start to your day!

Personally I like to go for a run, or at least a brisk power walk. And while many times I have had to really convince myself to head out the door, not once have I ever returned and thought ‘oh, I should never have done that.’ Instead, a few minutes into my run or walk, I’m thinking ‘I am so glad I did this!’ Sometimes my run or walk is an hour, sometimes it’s half an hour, and sometimes it’s just a brisk walk around the block. But this practice also has a knock on effect in terms of wanting to eat something healthy for breakfast rather than comfort food (yes I tend to gravitate towards muffins, croissants etc otherwise!). Running or walking may not be your thing. How about some cardio? If the weather’s bad or I simply don’t want to go outdoors, sometimes I’ll do a cardio workout at home for 10 or 15 minutes. Or you could do something gentler like yoga? Whatever it is for you, choose something to help your body and mind – MOVE into action!

4 | Have a healthy breakfast

Not exactly rocket science and you already know that you are what you eat and that you should eat a healthy breakfast to start your day right! Yet so many of us either eat a far from healthy, rushed breakfast on the move, or have no breakfast at all. What’s a healthy breakfast? I try to have a healthy smoothie every morning and because mine tend to be quite filling, with things like avocado and walnuts in it, it tends to keep me full all morning (which is a good thing for me, keeps me away from those muffins!)! Having a smoothie also helps me to put a wide variety of ingredients in my breakfast than I normally would have e.g. toast. Other times I’ll have granola with live yoghurt and berries, or I’ll have toast with avocado and egg, one of my faves, or something like oats with a bit of almond butter and chia seeds in it. I am always on a quest to eat healthier and don’t always do this, but I do tell myself that I will begin my day eating something healthy at the very least! This will usually set me up to make healthy eating choices as I go through my day, even if I do fall off the bandwagon some of the time! I tend to use the 80/20 rule of thumb and aim to be as healthy as possible at least 80% of the time!

5 | Do something different

I’ve read in a few different places that it’s a good idea to change up something you do habitually every day to sharpen your mind. A while back, I did a really good course provided by Jim Kwik (author of the book, ‘Limitless’) called Superbrain and he suggested doing things like brushing your teeth with the opposite hand you normally brush with – so if you normally hold your toothbrush and brush your teeth with your right hand, try doing this with your left hand! It means you’ll have to focus a lot more (which is what you want – a good brain workout!) to make sure you don’t get toothpaste all over your face! Or, if you always put on your right sock or shoe first, make a conscious effort to put on the left one first. This doesn’t take long at all, seconds of your time, and involves an activity you have to do anyway (so shouldn’t really take up any additional time) but is a great brain training exercise to start your day!

My morning routine is habitual now and making your morning routine a habit is exactly what you want to do. Yes, there are days that things don’t go according to plan, or I’m travelling and things are different, but for the most part, I will do the above things without even thinking about it. I do other things too, like reading, I’ll read at least a chapter or a few pages of a book with my breakfast if I’m alone or I’ll do some personal development like listen to a podcast or audiobook.

The key is to find things that will work for you personally and set you up for your day ahead.

Do you have a morning routine? What does it consist of?

What season of life are you in?

What season of life are you in?

As I write this blog post, spring is starting to awaken here in England. Spring is like a new year to me – a fresh start, a new beginning, time to step out of hibernation and get out there!

But even though it’s officially spring over here and I can see all the signs of spring coming to life around me, as we change seasons, I can’t help but think about the seasons we all experience in our own lives, in our own journeys. While it may look like spring ‘out there’, we may not be experiencing a spring ourselves right now.

In my Born to Flourish planner-journal the first section is titled ‘Learn’ – in here I go through a number of lessons and reflections we can all learn from the last leg of our journeys to help us be better prepared for the next leg. There is nothing like hindsight to learn some valuable lessons! On the very last page of this ‘Learn’ section, before the next section turns to defining your ‘Dream’, I talk about the seasons of life. The purpose of this is for you to reflect on the season of life you’re currently experiencing or coming out of, or maybe even heading into.

This is because just like our planet experiences different seasons, or goes through a cycle, so do we. It’s so easy to feel like giving up when you’re going through the winters of life, or to feel over confident when you’re experiencing a summer. It’s great to stop and look at the bigger picture – to realise that as we go on our individual journeys through life, we are going to experience all these seasons at one point or another. We just need to realise that seasons come and go, we simply need to let the seasons run their course and adapt ourselves to these seasons as best we can.

So let’s talk about each of these seasons of life, which I describe in my planner-journal too. As you read through these, do you relate to any of these in your life right now?

Spring

Definitely my favourite season of all! This is a time of rebirth, a time of opportunity and hope, of dreams of things to come. It’s a time to roll up your sleeves, get rid of all the cobwebs, dust and overgrowth from winter and make space for new growth. It’s a time to sow the seeds you want to reap as your harvest further down the line. It’s a time to be industrious but also a time to take the time to marvel at everything that’s coming to life around you.

Summer

What’s not to love about summer (besides maybe the odd heatwave!)?! Long, lazy days, the sun’s rays on your skin. This season is all about enjoying the warmth of summer but also protecting and nurturing all the seeds you worked hard to plant in the spring. It’s also about keeping the weeds and pests at bay – often these come in the form of doubts, hesitation, fear, and all sorts of obstacles that trip you up and can undo all the work you put in during spring.

Incidentally, for a couple of years in London (where I live), I rented a small piece of land not too far from where I lived, they’re called ‘allotments’ and on this land people get the opportunity to plant vegetables and so on because the typical garden in London is pretty small, so having an allotment is a brilliant way to grow your own fruit and veg. And boy did I work HARD in the spring to prepare this small piece of land for planting (to me it was huge given I was doing everything by hand!). I diligently dug up the soil, removed all the weeds and overgrowth that had gathered over the winter and I sowed lots of lovely seeds. As spring turned into summer, I watched with delight as my tiny little seeds turned into seedlings and then into larger plants. Incredible! I have to say though, I would spend a day or two weeding and watering my plants and then disappear for a week or two, relying on the odd shower to keep my plants fed. I remember rocking up a couple of weeks later (after all, I was enjoying summer!) and my jaw nearly dropping to the floor. There was no evidence whatsoever that I had worked my tail off a couple of weeks ago. There were huge weeds EVERYWHERE, and my lovely plants were definitely in need of a big drink. The grass surrounding my piece of land that I had mowed a couple of weeks ago had overgrown. I simply could not believe my allotment could look like an abandoned, unloved site after taking my eye off it for only two weeks! But this is what happens when we take our eye off the ball for too long – things get overgrown. The weeds take over. The pests try their luck. We have to consistently nurture what we planted back in the spring to keep things in good shape. I realised that it was far better for me to spend 15 minutes every day on my allotment than all afternoon or all day every two weeks. Little and often was all it took to check in, do a little weeding and a little watering. And so it’s the same with us.

Autumn / Fall

We all know what this means – time to reap what we sowed (or didn’t sow!)! We put in all the diligence and hard work in the spring, we nurtured what we planted over the summer and now it’s time to see what the harvest will be. I remember being absolutely over the moon when I got to harvest all these delicious, homegrown vegetables I had planted from seed in the spring. Despite having grown up on a farm, to me it was just magical that a tiny little seed could evolve into all this delicious food. Again, I learned some lessons on my allotment! Not going to harvest my goodies in time meant the birds got to enjoy my juicy, ripe tomatoes (and raspberries!) more than I did! Lesson learned for next year! I also find that autumn / fall is a time of transitioning – of looking back on the summer and of looking forward to the next season …

Winter

And boy do the winters of life come round, often without fail. Who can escape these? Sometimes they are cold, bitter winters that literally bring us to our knees but winters are also a time to enjoy cosy evenings indoors with loved ones, rest and recuperate from our spring and summer work and enjoy the fruits of our labour (or wish we put in the work!). Winters are also a time for reflection – of what went well, of what didn’t go so well and how we might do better next time around. The winters of life make us appreciate the summers all the more. It’s a time to plan for spring which is around the corner.

I have definitely experienced all four of these seasons in my life, many times over! And I’m sure you have too. Just as we can’t fight the physical seasons and allow them to just be, we have to do the same with the seasons we experience in our lives – go with the flow and learn lessons to help us be better prepared next time around.

10 ways to stop procrastinating

10 ways to stop procrastinating

‘Some day is not a day of the week.’ I remember reading this somewhere!  And how true this is.

Yet how many of us will start exercising ‘some day’, will start writing that book ‘some day’, will take the first step towards living the life of our dreams ‘some day?’  Procrastination is one of the main issues people struggle with, feeling completely paralysed when it comes to doing the things that need to get done, even when they know this action will benefit them immensely.  So how can you stop procrastinating and putting things off?  Here’s 10 ideas …

1 | Take action TODAY

Some day never comes, my friend – the day to take action is TODAY!  What you do TODAY is what will shape your tomorrows.  Don’t kid yourself that you’ll start tomorrow, on Monday, on the first day of next month, or on the 1st of January!  What’s stopping you from starting right now?  It’s like the sign I’ve seen up in some pubs ‘Free beer tomorrow!’  Well, tomorrow – like Some Day – never comes!  When you go rushing back for your free beer tomorrow, the sign still says ‘tomorrow’!  

In case you’ve forgotten, you only have a finite number of TODAYS on Planet Earth.  So what you do today counts.  The choice is yours as to whether you will spend it watching TV or taking another step towards your dreams and goals!

2 | Focus on your why

A lot of people don’t even start taking action, let alone keep taking action, because they don’t have a strong enough REASON to get started, or keep going.  If you want to drop 2 dress sizes, WHY do you want to do this?  Not because you love cutting out carbs and sweet treats and running 5 miles a day, but maybe because you want to feel good, have a healthy body weight and have more energy?  Focus on your ‘why’ – and this is usually the feeling you will feel when you eventually achieve your goal.  If you have a strong enough why, you will get started.  There’s a book I read many years ago that explained this brilliantly (I think it’s The Compound Effect by Darren Hardy).  If you were given the opportunity to walk across a plank placed between two high rise buildings for $20, would you do it?  Probably not!  But if you had a loved one, say your child, trapped on the other building that had just caught fire, would you walk across the plank to rescue them?  There’s a high possibility you would!  You wouldn’t put it off to Monday, would you?!  Your WHY would be strong enough to get you moving immediately.  Reasons drive results – so dig deep for the reasons WHY you want to do something.  What will it cost you if you don’t achieve the goal?

3 | Look for your pain points

Apparently human behaviour is driven by either pain or pleasure.  And also, apparently humans tend to be motivated more by pain than pleasure (weird species, aren’t we!)!  So if we look at our dropping 2 dress sizes example – what pleasure will you experience by dropping two dress sizes?  You’ll look good, you’ll feel good, you’ll be more confident, you’ll have more energy, etc.  Which is a wonderful picture to paint that will give you a warm, fuzzy feeling and hopefully one that will get you to do the things you need to do to achieve that.  Now let’s look at the pain you’ll experience if you don’t achieve your goal of dropping two dress sizes.  Perhaps you’ll keep gaining weight?  Possible ill health?  Low confidence?  Fatigue?  Usually the thought of the pain we’ll feel if we don’t achieve our goal gets us into activity more than the thought of the pleasure we’ll experience if we do.  If you plan to start your own business ‘some day’ to escape the daily grind, what pain will you feel if you don’t get started TODAY?  Can you see yourself in 20 years time, taking the same commute to work, getting your measly pay cheque that hardly sees you through the month, thinking to yourself ‘why didn’t I take action back then?’  Regret is a bitter pill to swallow.  Thinking about the pain you will suffer for not taking action today is a surefire way to get you up off the couch and doing something your future self will thank you for one day. 

4 | Work backwards

I was so moved by a talk I listened to by Les Brown where he spoke about people reaching the end of their lives and that the saddest part was not just about the person themselves dying but all their hopes and dreams dying with them.  All the things they could have, would have and should have been and done whilst they were alive.  But didn’t.  It’s not something we like to think about and tend to avoid, but one day our time will be up.  If you picture yourself at the end of your life looking back, what do you want to be thinking, feeling?  Pride and a sense of achievement for all the things you made happen or at least tried to make happen?  Or deep regret at all the time you wasted, time that you now can’t get back?  

5 | Be smart with your time

One thing that is truly equal in this world is that each and every one us – rich, poor, young, old – has 24 hours in our day.  It’s what we each do with that 24 hours that makes the difference.  More specifically, what we choose to do with that 24 hours.  How can you work, not harder, but smarter?  If you’re procrastinating over doing something, schedule it in your diary like you would an appointment with your bank manager – and attend your appointment with yourself!  Can you wake up an hour earlier, stay up an hour later, use your lunch hour, evenings or weekends to work on your goals or spend time on the things that are truly important to you?  Plan your days wisely by scheduling your key tasks, the activities you need to do to move the needle, and then let everything else fit in around that.  Keep the main thing, the main thing!  There is a plethora of information out there to help you get the most out of your most previous resource – time.  One of my favourite books on making the most of your time is The 80/20 Principle by Richard Koch.

6 | Don’t wait for things to be perfect (they never will be!)

I took part in a fabulous workshop with James Wedmore a while ago, who trains online entrepreneurs, and there was one statement he made that really stuck with me that I always go back to when in doubt – and actually have stuck on my wall now!   ACTION CREATES CLARITY.  This is something I struggled with a lot.  I would want to know what my entire plan was from start to finish before I got started.  Kind of like wanting to see what the roads, traffic, weather and scenery would be like on every part of my journey from England to Scotland before I set off by car.  Not really possible!  If I waited for the promise of perfect weather throughout my journey, plus a completely clear road ahead with no cars, plus all green traffic lights  – I would be waiting FOREVER before setting off!  Sadly, none of us has a crystal ball to look into the future and see what will happen if we do X or Y, we’ve just gotta take that leap of faith and keep heading in the direction of our goals and dreams!  Sure, there may be setbacks, yes, there are likely to be detours along the way – but just as your satnav simply reroutes you if things don’t go to plan, so can you reroute if you come across any challenges!  There will never be the perfect time to start, SO JUST START NOW!  Here’s one of my favourite quotes:

‘Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.’ — Martin Luther King, Jr

7 | Be clear on where it is you’re going

You need to be clear on your destination; your end goal, but you don’t need to (and can’t in any case!) see every detail of the journey to your destination.   You’ve just got to put the engine on, programme your destination into the satnav and set off, letting things unfold as you move forward.  I found that one of the biggest reasons I would procrastinate was because I wasn’t clear on where I was going, what I wanted to achieve, even if it was simply knowing exactly what I wanted to achieve that day.  Now, before I go to sleep, I know exactly what I want to achieve the next day.  When I wake up, I have a clear goal in mind that I’m working towards that day, no more dithering about, wondering what I should be doing!  And of course, using my Born to Flourish planner-journal keeps me laser focused on what goals I’m working towards and the mindset I need to keep me on track!

8 | Expect more of yourself

Sometimes you just need to take a good long look at yourself in the mirror, look into your eyes and ask yourself ‘Is this really the best I can give?  Am I really fulfilling my whole potential, giving it my all?  Am I happy with the standards I’ve set for myself?  Have I even set any standards for myself?’  Humans are capable of achieving amazing things, it’s been demonstrated time and time again since the beginning of time.  Expect more of yourself.  Complacency kills so many dreams.  Raise the bar and step into your greatness.  

9 | Take Baby Steps

Don’t expect to be able to train to climb Mount Everest in two weeks, no matter how focused you are on your goal or how motivated you are!  Direction is better than speed.  You can get nowhere fast.  Or you can get where you want to be if you keep doing the do consistently, putting one foot in front of the other.  People over estimate what they can achieve in one year but often grossly under estimate what they can achieve in five years.  Again, this is something I struggled with.  I wanted results now and would feel rather dejected when at the end of a day slogging over my business, it seemed I had achieved so little.  However, I had laid another brick, and if I kept laying bricks each and everyday, eventually the wall would start taking shape.  Another quote (a Chinese proverb) I love is

‘Be not afraid of going slowly, be afraid only of standing still.’

So even if those baby steps feel like you’re moving slowly, you’re still moving!  Just keep going. 

10 | Just Do It

Stop getting ready to get ready to get ready to start Some Day.  Just go ahead and start!  Now.  With something, no matter how small it is.  Even if it’s 15 minutes you spend working on your goals, that means you’re 15 minutes closer towards your goal.  I would always feel I’m not ready, I need more this and more that, I need to be more prepared, I still don’t know exactly how things will work out, but what if this and what if that … well you’re never going to know until you GET GOING!  Maybe you just don’t ‘feel’ like it.  Be careful of feelings.  If you know what needs to be done then don’t think about it, just do it.  An elite athlete doesn’t have to think about getting out of bed at 4 or 5am to practice for hours.  They just do it.  Because they have their eye on the gold medal and know what needs to be done to get there, whether they feel like it or not.

Here’s yet another of my favourite quotes (yes, I have a huge collection!) that I’ll leave you with to help end procrastination:

‘Do the thing and you’ll have the power.’ – Ralph Waldo Emerson

In other words, regardless of how you feel, just do what you know needs to be done, and the power / energy you need to do it will come!

 

How do you overcome procrastination?

 

3 ways to be more authentic

3 ways to be more authentic

Going to the Venice Carnival has always been on my bucket list so when I got the opportunity to visit last year, I was thrilled (so thrilled that I returned this year too!)!   The Venice Carnival was every bit as magical as I imagined, maybe even more. And of course, a big part of the Carnival is the dressing up and wearing of masks, a tradition that dates back centuries.  And as I admired all the elaborate costumes and masks all around me, I couldn’t help but wonder ‘who is beneath the mask?’  Who is the real person behind all the outward pomp and flair?  At best, all you could see was a glimpse of eyes beneath the masks.

And while the Venice Carnival was magical and fun and lasts only a couple of weeks, it made me wonder about the ‘invisible’ masks we often wear as people, sometimes throughout our lives.  Masks that depict who we feel we should be instead of who we truly, authentically are.  And with constant reminders from social and mainstream media of who we ‘should’ be, the pressure is on to keep those masks in place.

But being someone you’re not is exhausting and you’ll know this if this is something you’ve experienced in your own life.  The quote ‘why blend in when you were born to stand out’ holds true!  But standing out from the crowd and being authentically you can be scary, it’s so much easier to conform and fit in, to be accepted. We humans crave acceptance after all, even if it costs us our true selves.

I remember starting my first job in London many years ago. After a few weeks into my corporate job I started to notice that I seemed to be the only person dressing in bright colours.  In fact, I wore a bright purple outfit to my interview, ha! This was ‘me’ back then.  But of course, as time went on, I started thinking hmm maybe I should wear black and navy blue like everyone else?  I’m sticking out like a sore thumb!  I don’t want people to think I’m looking for attention!  And the last thing I wanted to do was draw attention to myself!  So, over the next few months, my wardrobe slowly morphed from bright and colourful to muted colours that would help me blend into the background of everyone else in the office. It wasn’t me but I felt I fitted in more and this was more ‘acceptable’ in a corporate environment. And that’s just one small example of how we can slowly lose our authenticity.  All the small acts of inauthenticity soon add up.

So in a world where we often feel pressurised to conform, how can we be more authentic? Here are three ways you can start making the journey towards being more authentic today. And I say journey because sometimes we stop and realise that we are so far off track from being our true authentic self that it’s going to take a lot of backtracking and self-discovery to become more authentic.

1 |  Observe yourself and learn

I find observing myself to be a great way to learn, grow and improve in all areas of my life. At the end of every day, ask yourself ‘was I my true, authentic self today?’  Think of any instances you weren’t and ask yourself why?  What could you have done differently?  What will you do differently if a similar situation comes up?  Maybe you agreed with something someone said because you didn’t want to offend them or give an opposing, but honest, viewpoint.  Perhaps you can note down that next time, you will speak your truth and not be afraid of having a different point of view.  It’s all about building that self-awareness, learning from it and making small improvements every day.  Journalling is a great way to explore your thoughts, feelings and actions along your journey to being more authentic. I created and use my own hybrid planner-journal to keep me focused on the things that matter, both internal and external.

Find out more about my planner-journal here!

2 |  Trust your intuition

We all have that inner guidance system within us, that small, still voice.  Learn to listen to it and to trust it!  Nowadays, we are so consumed with looking for answers externally – we follow all these people on social media telling us to do this and that, we take a gazillion courses and read a gazillion books and then become more confused than ever.  If we take the time to listen to ourselves, the answers are within us.  Each of us is so unique and different, there simply can’t be a ‘one size fits all’ solution that suits everyone, only YOU know what’s best for you and how to truly live in alignment with your True Authentic Self.  Make time every day to tune into your intuition and listen to what it’s telling you.  Being someone who consumed SO much external information myself, I have learned the huge importance of instead turning within to discover my Authentic Self and live in alignment with it every day.

3 |  Live life with purpose

When you live life with purpose, it’s a lot easier to know what aligns with your True Self and what doesn’t.  I used to be someone who said yes to a lot of things to please people but did not align with who I truly was.  I would just go with the flow and wonder why I felt frustrated a lot of the time but this was because I was not doing things that aligned with who I truly was.  When I took the time to ask myself what my purpose was, what I wanted to achieve in the grander scheme of things, what I wanted to do with my life (rather than what I should do or what others expected of me), I was able to identify the things I was doing and the time I was wasting on things that were out of alignment with the real me. 

If you’d like a free worksheet to help you discover your purpose, read my How to Discover Your Purpose blog post and download the free worksheet 😊

Our ethos is that each and every one of us was born to flourish and be all that we were destined to be!  Being the real, authentic you will put you well on the way to doing that!
