RICK and his Friends Celebrating MESSY MARCH in BERLIN, 2012

WHAT A MESS!
And if you’re not making one, then you’re not trying hard enough!
This is MARCH.
MESSY MARCH!
Time to take Creative Risks
Make Mistakes
Try Anything you Want
You have Permission to Fail!

This is the Ideal time to mess up.
And if you try something you don’t really know how to do
And it ends up a total Mess,
then you did Good!
You are Celebrating MESSY MARCH!

Let it Go!
In August, Therapists go on Vacation.
In March, Inner Critics go on Vacation.
Perfectionist… Outta Here!
Hopeless…Bye Bye!
Comparer… TailLights!
They are Not Around!
And We can Play!

Everywhere we Look there is Celebration:

Her Attitude…
A Mess!

So Take the Pressure Off!
Everybody Else is Celebrating!

Remember that Messy March is about Trying Something New
Trying Something Again
Trying Things Out

Trying to Write Something Really Shitty.
Trying to Draw Something Terrible.
Trying to Make Something Ugly.

So Often when we try to Write, Draw or Make Something,
we work in the fear that it won’t be Good Enough
But in Messy March, Not Good Enough is Perfect!
It is the Time of Year when we Cannot Lose.

This Week Alone, there is SO MUCH to CELEBRATE:
3/13: Friday the Thirteenth
3/14/15: PI Day
3/15: The Ides of March
3/16: The 75TH Day of the Year
3/17: SAINT PATRICK’s Day
3/18: QUEEN LATIFAH’s Birthday
3/19: SAN GIUSEPPE
3/20: THE FIRST DAY of SPRING

Get Some PosterBoard and Colorful Markers
Or Some Clay
Or Whatever Your Favorite Materials are for a Craft Project
(Cardboard toilet paper rolls, or Wood Popsicle Sticks, or Yarn…)
Maybe one you’ve been Putting Off
Or haven’t thought about in years
Or that you’ve never tried before

Walk Barefoot
Kiss a Stranger
Make that Phone Call
Ask Someone Out on a Date
Profess Your Love
Get a Massage — Or trade Massages with a Friend
Or a Stranger
Try Some New Exercise
Bring a Can of Silly String to Dinner
Throw things Away
Throw things Up in the Air
Drive Somewhere without a Map
Walk to Work a Different Way
Walk a Different Way
Work a Different Way
Spray Whipped Cream on Everything
Cook Something from Scratch
And Too Much Cheese
Let Go of Fear
LOVE EVERYBODY
LAUGH
BREATHE
Make a Mess of Everything!

It’s MESSY MARCH!
