Pray for patience…

Its another glorious day to be alive and I am ashamed to say I did not start the day off well…I’ve still got time to turn it around though! ūüėČ I didn’t mention this yesterday but in the midst of all this excitement over the last month I’ve moved, twice¬†– SOOOO FUN!

waterfallpushI’m not a fan of moving, though I haven’t met anyone who is excited by the prospect of hauling boxes, carrying awkwardly shaped items & fitting furniture through doorways that are too small, so I think its fair to say I’m not alone!¬†The endless array of frustrations are enough to drive anyone mad, but when you’re already a little nutty, its enough to push you over the edge (I thought it would be funny to include this shot of me pretending to push my wonderful fiance over the edge, haha!).

Its times like this when¬†I used to pray for patience. That was, of course, until my Aunt quite aptly pointed out that the more you pray for patience the more opportunities God gives you to practice…rather genius but never the less not helping my cause!

I thought about it, and instead of praying for patience when I am frustrated, I am just going to laugh – laugh at myself, laugh at the situation, laugh at the way life throws you curve balls you can never expect but you’ve got to roll with anyway…just laugh! My hope is the laughter will¬†activate¬†the ventromedial prefrontal cortex¬†that produces endorphins and I will go from frustrated to happy….we shall see!¬†

‘Til next time, keep smiling!¬†


Best Medicine

They say laughter is the best medicine,

and this I know to be true.

Just give it a try, I bet it will happen to you!

Your spirit lifts and your belly jiggles

when you let out those silly giggles!

Before you know it, you forget why you’re mad

and the days disappointments no longer make you sad.

Yes, laughter really is the best medicine!

Don’t forget to laugh out loud today!!
