As this month comes to a close, I've had time to reflect on how much has changed since April 1st. This month has felt like 2 months put together. For starters, I moved from Greenville, Sc. to Atlanta, Ga the first week, dove right into work the second week, went to Los Angeles and D.C. the third week, and finished out the last week knee deep into work and helping with our VIP event that took place this last Sunday. Its been a lot. I'm not complaining, by no means, but its been an emotional roller coaster. Nothing has been really wrong, but as a woman, hormones can be crazy and I think that could be the culprit of my up and down feelings.
*Come on women, you know EXACTLY what I'm talking about.*
As funny or weird as this may sound, the only thing that got me through was prayer and pinterest. Praying does sound normal, but pinterest?
I did and do feel some relief after praying, but I still tend to feel the pressure of trying not to have those negative thoughts. Desperate to change my thoughts to something positive, I looked to Pinterest to lift my spirits and make me... laugh.
You know, they say laughter is the best medicine. It brings people together, it makes you smile, and it instantly lifts your mood no matter what.
Its like natural magic.
The humor section on Pinterest is amazing. It will have you laughing till you cry. Tears from laughter is way better than tears from sorrow. And it was exactly what I needed.
Here are some of my favorites.
This reminds me of the first time I stepped foot in Hollister. After 2 seconds I was done and was desperately searching for the exit. I got lost in the dressing room area, thinking it was the way out, and the bouncer looking guy gave me directions, yes, directions to get out of Hollister.
How cute is this little kitten?
The grumpy cat memes are HILARIOUS.
This reminds me so much of my boss. I call her a ninja cause she is literally everywhere you don't expect her to be. She knows this about herself and everybody at Fiore thinks she's basically a super human.
I can't explain how funny this is to me. I laughed till I cried. This little girl is very serious about her birthday party.
Again, in stitches.... I think we can all relate.
I'm laughing right now. Y'all can probably tell that my sense of humor is all over the board.
Dog shaming at its finest.
Poor cookie monster. Maybe she was trying to get him to try something new? Wives/girlfriends can be guilty of that sometimes.
Is it sad that my brain does a victory dance when this happens?
God bless Miss Rhode Island. But you have to admit, she does make a good point.
There are many more pins on my humor board, these were just a few. I'm really thankful that God created us to laugh at funny things and really enjoy it with such movement within our souls. I think its His way of helping us to lighten up and release tension in our body-that way we can clear out all of the gunk that blocks the pathway to positive thinking. Just remember, sometimes you just need a good laugh (or two).
