Let’s Do This: Hey Eleanor Moments

Declaration: I want the term “Eleanor” used in everyday conversation. Kind of like a “Baldwin” was a handsome guy in the 90s, I wanna hear someone I don’t know talking about their “Hey Eleanor moment” (or maybe “pulling an Eleanor”) when they do something scary. I think it could happen. Until then, here’s a few places I found people pulling an Eleanor on the web. You should probably just check ’em out cause it’s Friday and you’re not really working anyhow.

1. The Crossroads of Should & Must

If this beautifully written & designed post doesn’t make you sit back and really reflect on your life’s purpose, I am a monkey’s uncle!

2. An & Ria’s #First Flight.

I laughed and cried watching these two 70-something women fly for the first time.

3. I’m Taking Sweetpea’s Burlesque/Twerking Class. 

No, really. I am. Tuesday nights in Mpls. Who’s coming with me?

4. Sharks.

And lastly, it turns out my biggest fear is totally, 100 percent justified!

    Sunday night I emailed a professor of mine to ask for her academic and career insight. As much as I fear rejection and failure I probably fear success more (because of the increased rejection and failure potential). I was terrified from every angle. I kid you not, after sending I said to myself, "that was my own Hey Eleanor." We set up an appointment to meet Wednesday after class and I’m terrified.

    YES! See, it’s the things that can’t kill you that are often scariest. Psyched to hear how it went. Break a leg (or whatever you say to someone meeting with a professor!).
