Laughter Makes Everything Better

Laughter makes everything better….

When was the last time you belly-laughed?  I’m talking laughed so hard that a few hours later your belly muscles hurt?  Laughed so hard you cried and you didn’t even care how your makeup was being affected?   Laughed so hard that your own laughter made others laugh along?

THAT makes everything better.  It’s like a cup of hot cocoa on a cold day or like a glass of milk and a delicious home-made cookie.  Or better yet…like a new pair of shoes that hug you like a glove. Laughter just makes everything better.

Stress does not help, burdens do not help, long to-do lists do not help.  But if you can stop in the middle of all that ‘stuff’ and find something to laugh about….heck how about something to smile about even!  That really truly could make everything better.  

When you are authentic in your search for humor in the chaos, joy in the sadness, peace in the crazy that is all around you….there… in that truth, in that space of uncertainty… you just may find that right there in that place…. Aside from the one thing that matters most, the one thing that has you baffled, the one thing that your thoughts keep going back to in anguish…. you can release all the ‘stuff’ that gets in your way of finding the laughter, and just for a moment, stop and giggle.

Was there a time awhile back that a friend said something silly that make you laugh, or a cousin reminded you of a memory that caused you two to crack up with stinging cheeks, or maybe you yourself laughed at your own ridiculousness while crossing your legs tight so you didn’t pee your pants.  Remember that, give yourself permission and laugh out loud. It really can make everything better.

Be Her

Be her….

Do you have girlfriends you can call who will support you in your greatness? Girlfriends who will send you love over the phone or be with you to give you hugs? Girlfriends who understand no justification is necessary and love you even in the mess you may find yourself in?

Girlfriends know what to say and how to be and what to do. They sit when times are tough, they lend an ear when your words won’t stop, they hug when you’re falling down. They laugh from the belly when you do something Crazy. They watch your kids when the sitter leaves you high & dry. They bring a meal when you can’t get out of bed. They cry with you, giggle with you and rant on & on with you. Girlfriends know what to do.

Are you that kind of girlfriend? Do you stop your nonsense to lend a hand? Do you reach out when you’re tired because you know your bestie is having the worst day of her life? Do you care and love and give and hold? It takes a lot to step up and be that kind of friend. It takes courage and compassion and selflessness.

Be the one who someone calls because she knows she can count on you. All Day.

 Be the one who puts smiles on faces, sends birthday wishes & opens her arms to others.

 Be the one who at the end of the day puts her head on her pillow, down right knowing that she stepped out and gave of herself to another with nothing but honest, authentic giving.

Be Her all day long. Truth. Real. Raw. Your giving opens up space & gives permission for your girlfriends to Be Her too.

 

Your God Girl,
