#KupahJames Recap from the Past Month

On looking back at the past month I realize how much FUN I’ve had! It can be crazy running a business and it can be exciting and creative and challenging and #motivating and (yes this could be about 10 blogs! So, I digress HA!) But, I’ve really been having a BLAST and trying out a lot of new or different things and looking at life in different and fun ways! SO I thought I’d share some of that and give you all a look into this past month at things you may not normally hear about from me!
 
In the past month:
 
My Favorite:
-Movie: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
-Song: Somebody that I used to know by Gotye f/Kimbra
-Creative Talent: “Walking Off the Earth”
-Venue: The New Revere Hotel
-New Grown & Sexy Spot: Minibar on Monday’s “Unplugged”
-New Equipment: Beats by Dre Pro headphones and IPAD 3! Phenomenal
-New EXPERIENCE: HONEY WHISKEY!!! What?! TRUE FAN FOR LIFE
 
Funniest Moment: A new friend wore my Jordan Concords at Bond on Sat night (They were more comfortable than her heels.)
 
New Thing I Learned: That my fire is not everyone elses and I’m trying to learn how to deal with that concept. #NotEZ
 
New Thing I Got Into or, I am Interested in: I’m in interested in a new book I put down months ago but recently picked back up. Emotional Intelligence #YES
 
New Challenge (We all face ’em!): My Challenge is my gift; that is to assist in spreading the contagion of smiling and laughter to everyone that I come in contact with.
 
Best Moment: Easy! Having a conversation with a complete stranger recently. Which was also the best part of that night. Expect the UnExpected… 😉
 
Sidenote from the Past Month: Had the most mature argument with a Close Friend and nobody stormed off or got offended! Can you believe it? Both of us were objective and stayed on task to come to an understanding about our differences of opinion. Both of us listened to the other, both were open minded to other possibilities, and both are even closer now because of it! I think it’s because both of us entered into it with NO EGO. 
 
-TIP for the next time you get in an argument: try to lose the ego and understand that someone you care about is not attacking you, nor are they attempting to insult you by expressing a thought, or a concern. Perhaps w/o the ego one might be able to see the real issue and begin to efficiently solve the problem. #JuSayn
 
As always, I’d love to hear what new or fun things YOU all have been up to or experienced lately!! #Share
 
 
 

Something worth HEARING

Happy Hump {giggity}  Day Everybody (I guess that’s what they call it?) Here’s a little something different I wanted to share that is 100% KJ #CoSigned:

“FROG”
Once upon a time there was a bunch of tiny frogs who arranged a running competition.

The goal was to reach the top of a very high tower.

A big crowd had gathered around the tower to see the race and cheer on the contestants.

The race began….

Honestly, no one in the crowd really believed that the tiny frogs would reach the top of the tower.

You could hear statements such as:

“Oh, WAY too difficult!!”
“They will NEVER make it to the top.”
or:
“Not a chance that they will succeed. The tower is too high!”

One by one, the tiny frogs began collapsing.

Except for those, who in a fresh tempo, were climbing higher and higher.

The crowd continued to yell, “It is too difficult! No one will make it!”

More tiny frogs got tired and gave up.

But ONE continued higher and higher and higher….

This one wouldn’t give up!

At the end everyone else had given up climbing the tower. Except for the one tiny frog that, after a big effort, was the only one who reached the top!

All of the other tiny frogs naturally wanted to know how this one frog managed to do it?

A contestant asked the tiny frog how he had found the strength to succeed and reach the goal.

It turned out….

That the winner was DEAF!

The wisdom of this story is:
Never listen to other people’s tendencies to be negative or pessimistic because they take your most wonderful dreams and wishes away from you.

Always think of the power words have.

Because everything you hear and read will affect your actions!

Therefore:
ALWAYS be….POSITIVE!

And above all:

Be DEAF when people tell YOU that you cannot fulfill your dreams!

This topic has been coming up a lot lately in my life. It’s classic #KupahJames101! The only thing I want to add is that there isn’t only power in what you hear or what you read; but also in what you say. Believe in yourselves and don’t let negativity affect you, and be sure to #MakeMoves and share that positivity with and towards others too! #StayKlassy and #LiveYOURDreams

#Klassroom Tour of Boston

There are many great places in this world and I plan on conquering quite a few in my lifetime. But, Boston is one of the #Klassiest. I am so proud to live here, and by living in Boston I mean living in the general vicinity of Boston HA!

Can we take a moment to appreciate all that this city has to offer?! I know they call America a melting pot, but if one American city could represent that best it would be Boston. Boston has so many different groups and types of people, places, cultural experiences, and HISTORY. It’s a city where you can walk from one neighborhood where you know you’ve got to keep your head down and not look anyone in the eye, to dapping up strangers and asking for directions. You can walk by a girl who’s in a business suit and looks sexy, but totally reserved and conventional in Govt Center and then see her late night breaking it down on the dance floor to Kanye and Jay-Z.

#Bostonians are smart. It’s a haven for education and on the flip side, is so culturally diverse you can make it successfully in pretty much any trade you’re passionate about. #Bostonians are tough. Whether its book or street smart, or both (which most #Bostonians are) they can hold their own in life and know how to survive. I firmly believe once you’re a #Bostonian you can take whatever life throws at you and survive anywhere else.

I’d like to have fun with this so I’m officially starting a Boston anthology of blog posts. Every few posts there will be one about Boston. It will include a Kupah James tour of Boston; my favorite places to hang out, dine, dance, see and shop as well as simply where I’m at or where Klass can be found any given weekend. And then, just some of my humble opinions and thoughts about Boston and #Bostonians of course.

To kick start this tour I’d take you to the Boston Public Library in Copley Square. It’s amazing. I head there in between meetings, I hold meetings there, and absorb all of the knowledge. It’s such a beautiful and peaceful place. It’s motivating to be surrounded by so much information and power (because knowledge is power duh!). Check it out sometime you won’t be disappointed!

Go explore and tell me about YOUR experiences!
