As is the case when I get busy, my patience for the quirky and funny diminishes and I enter serious-land. I hate this. So today I was searching for a lovely jump back to the hilarious and a bit off and came across my favorite lady for this type of subject, the one and only Mary Ellen Edmunds. Every time I read her writing, I can't help but full out belly laugh out loud and I found just what I needed.
"I heard that if you want or need to laugh and you don’t—if you suppress laughter—it goes to your hips and spreads out."
I figured that the stress of my life was keeping me from losing the weight I want to lose, and it is high time I just chill. I just found out yesterday that I get to teach Juniors next year (so excited) but that means that I have lots of work ahead of me in preparation and my kids want to play ball and have fun. Basically, I'm just making sure that I keep my priorities in check and lighten up just a little - it's the only chance I have to live today, and if it goes bad, it would be better to laugh it off and move on to tomorrow.
