So I came to visit some of my friends for the holidays over here in Budapest, Hungary. 🇭🇺
Booked one of those super-cheap Euro flights, rode a late-night bus a few hours to the airport, accidentally over-packed and had to pay extra fees, etc. Finally – ARrived, we had our cool friend-party-dinner-time… It was AWESOME.
BUT then the next morning I woke up with a weird bump on my eyelid.
By the second day all my people’s had left back to their countries and I’m still in Hungary with this weird bump getting fatter on my right eyelid.
“Is it pink eye? Is it a stye? Should I do a hot compress or ice?” Walking around in this new city with a fat blurry red puffy eye..
You know, it makes you feel weird. Like, somehow even HARDER to connect with people knowing that
– Not only do I not speak the language
– Now I have this physically imposing big-fat-pink-marshmallow thing on my face REPULSING people far away from talking to this weird American dude.
So I’m hiding here in the secret “silent room” with a coffee, closely monitoring the situation with my big fat eye. Craving human acceptance..
And Yet – This could actually be the MIRACLE the Universe is giving me: It’s my Second Brain growing in, right on my eyeball. 🧠👁
And what am I doing with that second brain-power upgrade? That’s *write*, righting new marketing and sales copy and doing web projects.
(Maybe also writing some love letters too.. )
In fact, I’m using this tiny eye-lid-brain to write this current message. Just imagine when I use BOTH of my brains? It’s gonna be amazing. I’m gonna be unstoppable!
Brain-Upgrade-Life 2019! Go out there and kill it, have a great day/month/New Year! 😄✌️
