Lessons in Retail | Learning to control your Retail life.

Never stop the action – keep it up 

Never stop the action – keep it up 
Breathe to the rhythm, dance to the rhythm 
Work to the rhythm, live to the rhythm

Love to the rhythm, be slave the rhythm 
This is my life, and I am what I am 
Slave to the rhythm, and you walk to the rhythm 
Love to the rhythm, slave to the rhythm 
Love to the rhythm, be a slave to the rhythm 
(keep it up, keep it up, keep it up, keep it up)

– Grace Jones | Slave to the Rythm

Alrighty then……. Let’s take a break for a moment. So, how is everyone doing? How is your Day Going? Had you Coffee? I am presently at Starbucks enjoying my Venti Americano with my Banana Bread Thinking, Observing, Drinking and Listening. It’s Amazing to see the all types of Customers walking in that are totally oblivious to their Surroundings and the Others around them. They Stumble over each Other, Stumble over their Transaction even though they have done the same Transacation over several months, and Stumble over the whole Morning thing.

I was like that for many Years which did not help my A.D.D but did help Plant the Seeds for later bouts of Anxiety and Depression…..Fun Times for all my Co Workers, Friends, Family and Beeker from the Muppets.

So why I am taking the Exit to the Right during the Telling of the Phenomenal and Captiviting Story of the RENEGADERETAILER….

Well, Rythm is a Dance and it is my Sole Companion you Can Feel it Everywhere….. -SNAP.

Let me Simplify it for all of us.

Everyday we Wake Up, Eat, Go to Work, Bitch about Life, Grab a Coffee, Go Home, Open the Bills, Eat, Sleep, Repeat……Just like a Constant RHYTMIC Heartbeat.How about if you Pump a little Adrenaline into this Constant, Boring, Predictable Rythm….Have we become a Slave to It? High Five, Booyakasha, I tied it all up with a Bright Red Bow!

STOP THE RYTHM INSANITY. 

LIVE YOUR LIFE: Are you doing what you want to be doing or the person you were told by your Guidance Counseller that you should be based on an HB Pencil and a Choice of four Letters? I am finally doing what I Want to be doing and Feeling good about Myself.

I AM NO LONGER A SLAVE TO THE RYTHM TO OTHERS SUGGESTIONS.

MAKE TIME FOR YOURSELF: How many Seconds, Minutes, and Hours do you Spend just by yourself without any Interruptions. Not Easy to do but doable. I take One Hour to myself between 530am and 630 and EVERYDAY at my local Starbucks. Yes, this has cost me over three hundred and forty two thousand Dollars, but its MY TIME. Come to think of it it couldve probably been better spent on a Luxurious Vacation – Go Figure. This Time alone, is Time alone and lets me Reflect, Plan, Read and Adjust my Day accordingly without Interuption.

I AM NO LONGER A SLAVE TO THE RYTHM OF TIME CONTROLLING ME.

LOOK INTERNALLY AND FUCK THE REST: Who Cares what your Friends are Doing, Buying, where they are on Vacation, and what about those Quirky Selfie Pics…Wow, those Pictures are so in the Moment and so Cool. NOT!
Stop Comparing yourself to Others, Stop Living in Others Footsteps, Stop drinking Regular Coffee and try an Americano as it will Change your Life and Heartbeat. Turn Off Facebook, Turn Off Instagram and Especially Turn off Entertainment Tonight.

Why do you Really Care that Don Knotts was ressurected from the Dead and in now Dating Priscilla Barnes.
In all Transparency I am on Facebook for Business Purposes and not Social.

I AM NO LONGER A SLAVE TO THE RYTHM OF SOCIAL MEDIA

BE LIKE BOY: For you Simpsons Fans): Wear your Underwear over your Head, Say Whats on your Mind and Wave your Hands in the Air like you Just Dont Care, and Dance Like you Just overdosed on a Couple of Packages of Willy Wonka Nerds. Be Yourself and not the Shadow of Someone Else’s Picasso Drawing of what is the Norm from Cheers ;). It is so Liberating to be yourself and not having shape yourself to fit in the Round Hole just because you are Square. Who Cares what other Think, Who Cares if you Love Flourescent Pink Clothing and Wear it during a Bright Wintery Day, Who Cares that due to your Fasion Choice of Pink Flourescent Clothing you caused a Three Car Pile up. 

I AM NO LONGER A SLAVE TO THE RYTHM OF SOCIAL MEDIA TO OTHER THOUGHTS ABOUT MYSELF

START PUMPING A DIFFERENT ADRENALINE INTO YOUR RYTHM.

BE A COACH:  Teach Something New to a Friend, Loved One, Stranger, President of the Republic of Congo. For every Nugget of Knowledge Taught you should Learn Something New.

Even though the Web is a Phenomenal Wasteland of Mexican Midget Amputee Pornography, there are other areas to Learn from. Seek these sites out, it’s ALL part of the Learning Process.

I AM NOW A SLAVE TO MY PHENOMENAL RYTHM OF  PERSONAL GROWTH

DRINK A COFFEE, GIVE A COFFEE:  Need a quick pick me up? Need to feel like you are the Greatest Person in the World? It will Cost you though…and you will need to pay

with a Different Currency – Coffee.  This is a Simple One and can be Applied to other Areas.
Buy the person Behind you a Coffee and Walk Away. I have done this on Countless Occasions and the Feeling Knowing you Made Someones Day a little more Interesting without the Knowing it was You….WOW! You are Now the Harry Potter with his Cloak of Invisibility SuperHero!

I AM NOW A SLAVE TO THE HAPPY AND CONTAGIOUS RHTYM OF BEING HUMAN.

INVEST IN COLORED AND FUNKY SOCKS: Do I Need to Explain or Say More. My Favorite Pair is the DJ Monkey.

I AM NOW A SLAVE TO BEING AN INDIVIDUAL WITH FLAIR AND GOOD TASTE.

STOP BEING SCARED OF THE UNKNOWN, TRUST YOURSELF:  Need I say more. When YOU and only YOU decide to Jump out of the Shadow of your OWN Fears, you will Start to Live. The Air will Smell better, Water will taste like Wine, and your Better Half…..well remain the Same Cranky person. BUT……YOU will be Better Off!

I AM NOW A SLAVE TO MYSELF AND NO ONE ELSE.
