My 5 Takeaways from Schitt$ Creek (and 2020)

1. YOU CAN ALWAYS START OVER

Thinking about starting a business, reinventing yourself, finding a new job, path, life pivot? 

I give you permission to JUST START.

There is no timeline for milestones. 

At any stage you have the power to choose the right next move for YOU.

Sometimes (like with the Rose’s) things are stripped from us beyond our control but know that for whatever is lost, something bigger is around the corner for us all. 

2. YOUR SELF-WORTH IS NOT TIED TO YOUR NET-WORTH

Did anyone else get major anxiety in the opening scene Episode One when the Feds show up and take all of the Rose’s material possession from their home? 

Chasing movers down the stairs to fight for Chanel Bags and other luxury items…. 

You know what happened after that?

SPOLIER ALERT….

They made out just fine.

No one cares about how much money is in your bank account or that you have a fancy car.

At your funeral do you want to be remembered for how many zeros are behind your name?

NOPE.

What really matters is how you show up for yourself and others in your life, the energy you are sharing in the universe and the impression you leave on those you meet. 

Give yourself GRACE and GRATITUDE for how far you have come and if you are living your life in pursuit of your purpose you will always be successful.

Have faith, trust the process and live to serve.

How do you want to be remembered?

3. LEARN TO APPRECIATE LIFE’S SIMPLE MOMENTS

Missing the non-essential luxuries?  Eating out…Going to concerts…Big Social Events…Travel?

2020 gave us no choice but to appreciate all that we have in our possession and how spending time with family, making dinners, going for walks, enjoying the outdoors, a bike ride in nature, the simple moments that allowed us to slow down, pause and see the world through a different set of eyes. 

Life is NOT about rushing around to check all the boxes on our “to-do” lists, overbooking our schedules, burning the candle at both ends, not spending time with ourselves and listening to our bodies and what we need. 

Adapt to the mentality that LESS is MORE.  Quality moments over Quantity. 

Spend time with gratitude for what you have, not what you don’t.

Learn how to fold in the cheese……

4. LEAN INTO YOUR MOST AUTENTHIC SELF AND YOU WILL FIND TRUE HAPPINESS

Are you going through life living it through the OPINIONS of other people telling you what you SHOULD do vs. what YOU WANT to do? 

Guess what, you are the master of your own destiny and if you are not showing up authentically for yourself in all you do in life you are wasting precious time. 

Step out of “I SHOULD” mindset and the opinions of others.

Step into your best self in a pursuit of a life that gets you so excited you jump out of bed and cannot wait to start the day.

Let’s be more like:

Mr. Rose– leveraging his talents to brand a hospitality business offering in a small, unassuming town

David- seeing the opportunity to open Rose Apothecary, sharing his passion for product, service and experiences.  Found true love.

Alexis– trying new jobs, staying open minded to learnings and transitioning her social jet-setting network lifestyle into planning events & PR

Moira- leading and directing the local Cabaret sharing her talents and passions with the community, filming a new movie, saying NO to going back to her old ways all while rocking her lewks and gal-tribe Famous Wig collection.

5. AT OUR LOWEST MOMENTS WE CAN RISE

“We are all on the precipice of greatness and we need to cherish these moments before everything changes.” -Moira Rose

I cannot watch the finale of Schitts Creek without crying.  Anyone with me?

Following the journey and transition of a storied family who at the end grows closer together through their lowest moments, working through challenges head on, making the best out of situations, all while being inspired by this small town and the people in it….no doubt leaving their mark on their newfound “framily”.

Take all that comes to you, good, bad, and otherwise into the realization that things are not happening TO YOU, they are happening FOR YOU

For you to grow, to learn, to push yourself out of your comfort zone.

Find a new path, a new way of looking at things, a new love for life and the people you share it with.  Do not let one bad day, knock you off track. 

Surround yourself with a high-vibe tribe, embrace an abundance mindset, and set intentions for what you desire.

Do one thing every day that gets you closer to your goals. 

Spread love, light and positivity wherever you go because, you are, SIMPLY THE BEST
