Put a Little Ze in Your Day

First of all, I apologize for the lame title. It’s really lame, isn’t it.

Now, maybe you can relate to this, but do you ever like something, like really like something, and you binge on it? Then, something happens and you either forget about it, or move on, or find something else that replaces it? Well, my God. I forgot how awesome Ze Frank is. Shame on me, I know.

I found one of his videos that I hadn’t seen–hooray! And I wanted to post it, because, as usual, the man is a freaking genius. While I don’t believe in fate, at all, I think I was meant to find this today. I’m calling it a happy accident.

Wednesday Wisdom #15

Laughter is healthy. And we need to laugh more now than ever. Seriously, what is happening with the world?

I’m a huge fan of the Marx Brothers. Sure, some of their material is dated or silly or cheesy. But Groucho never fails to make me laugh.

If you find yourself in need of a laugh today, I hope this does the trick.

“How do you spell ‘semi-colon’?”

“All right. Make it a comma.”

Is this what it’s like to work with an editor?  😉

Happy Wednesday, all!

Wednesday Wisdom #14

We’ve reached the last Wednesday in May. Really? That also means it’s the last Ze May post. Sad face. Fear not. I can almost guarantee he’ll be back at some point on this blog.

For the final installment, I’ve chosen a longer video than the previous ones, but it’s definitely worth a watch, especially if you’re in a creative rut. Ze shares some advice which can easily be applied to writing. It’s golden.

Hope you’ve enjoyed Ze May. And May in general. 😀 See you in June!

That’s how I like to think of kindness, I guess, as little rays of light that emanate out from the interactions that you have with people. Maybe little candles that light inside them.   -Ze Frank

The man is brilliant. Soak it up, people. Soak. it. up.

Hey, Ze? I know cheesy. This is not.

Wednesday Wisdom #10

I’ve decided I’m going to dedicate each Wednesday in May to Ze Frank.

Ze May, if you will.

I still love him. So, so much. He’s still so awesome to me. Inspirational, wise, wonderful. He always has this way to make me feel at ease with this thing we call life. I’m not sure how, but who cares.


Wednesday Wisdom #8

Do you watch Ted Talks? You should. Seriously. You can start right now.

I’m an introvert and have been for as long as I can remember. I think introversion is often misunderstood. And it’s something I’ve been thinking about a lot lately, wondering if I’m insanely flawed. Because being an introvert is such a strong part of me, expect more posts related to introverts in the future.

This video attempts to shed some light on this topic. Enjoy.
