What’s Up, Players?!
G’Day Gamer Guys & Gals!
Today and Tomorrow are my favorite days of the week here at Ru’s Daily!
Today is “Talk To Me Thursday”, where I answer your reader and viewer questions and comments.
And tomorrow is “RUvealed” where you I let you into my life a little more every week!
The two most personal days of the week here at Ru’s Daily, but two of the most rewarding for me to connect with my gaming community.
And as always, a big THANK YOU to Saljack Enterprises for making this possible!
So, what’s on the menu for today’s “Talk To Me Thursday”?
Well today, instead of you talking to me and asking me questions….
I wanted to switch it around and talk to YOU today!
I want to ask you a few questions to stimulate your mind and senses, and all of your feels!
Today’s “Talk To Me Thursday” comes with a special segment I am calling –
“WHY DON’T YOU?!”
I usually give individual advice but today… it’s for all of us!
“WHY DON’T YOU” Is going to challenge you to ask yourself – WHY?
And we won’t be satisfied with just our answers.
But instead, we aim to be satisfied with our best efforts.
What does that mean?
If you are honest with yourself you will be challenged to not only answer the questions but to make the steps towards changing whatever you are not satisfied with.
So for example – I am going to list a question in bold such as:
Why don’t you play that game on your shelf that is still wrapped in plastic?
So when you read that I am sure you laugh, because you and I have both been there.
We are excited to buy the game, and then because we are “adults” now – it ends up staying on our shelf for weeks or months and still in the plastic!
Because we have to work?
Because Facebook is more important?
Because we are tired?
And that was an easy one!
The questions will only get harder from here.
I want you to read and answer each question out loud so you can be as honest with yourself as possible.
You might have to find a private, quiet space to reflect, but it will be worth it to have this time of self-discovery.
“WHY DON’T YOU?!?”
Why don’t you finally go after your dream job?
(it’s never too late to make a change!)
Why don’t you start your own business?
(Be your own boss! Build your dream instead of helping to build someone else’s!)
Why don’t you call your mom (or someone you love) today?
(You know they would love to hear from you!)
Why don’t you go for a sunset walk? (no looking at your phone!)
(You only get one sunset a day! Don’t miss it – It’s amazing! Trust me!)
Why don’t you drink more water?
(You will feel better inside and look better outside if you do!)
Why don’t you talk to someone you’ve never met before today?
(the best connections can be made this way!)
Why don’t you plan a mini getaway?
(even if it’s just for a weekend or day – and one town over – just Go!) 🙂
Why don’t you take off your shoes and walk through the sand on a beach?
(unless it’s winter…get on this immediately!)
Why don’t you read something good today?
(your mind will thank you!)
Why don’t you do a good deed today?
(you’ll feel good about making someone else’s day!)
Why don’t you tell someone you love them today?
(spread your love!)
Why don’t you walk instead of drive today?
(if anything is in walking distance, walk it today instead of driving. The whole experience changes. You explore your surroundings while you are exercising in a fun way!)
Why don’t you hug someone today?
(give out a hug to someone in need, they’re free!)
Why don’t you stop second-guessing yourself?
(you are awesome. You can do it. you rock!)
Why don’t you game with your grandparents?
(bring the games over to visit grandma and grandpa! Laughing and good food are sure to follow! Have fun showing them how to play and make memories that will last a lifetime!)
So some of these were obviously more serious than others, but all of them good questions to ask ourselves!
Even if we did just one new thing a day that we have been putting off – we are succeeding and opening up our destinies to so much promise!
Doing something nice for someone else while not neglecting something special for yourself, will brighten your days, possibilities and opportunities!
I am so happy that one of the things that you chose to do today, was to spend a little time with me.
And I also chose to spend a bit of my time writing this especially for you.
Because besides loving to game, and talk all things gaming with you…
I also care about you, your life and how you feel!
My readers and viewers mean so much to me.
And I want to encourage you to actively increase your love and joy every day, as much as you can.
Because that is something you will never look back on and think of as wasted time.
I love you all and look forward to seeing you here tomorrow for “RUvealed”…
for the conclusion of the “tragic love story” we started last week!!
And you can also watch me tonight on TWITCH at
from 5pm-7pm GMT/CST!
Why Don’t You?! 🙂 <3
See you then, Roo Boos!
