    So I expect others to be able to laugh

    when I make fun of them too. This is mean I know, but why so serious? I can laugh at myself because it's the only cure for pain. If you'd hold on to something and can't forget it then the only solution is to laugh. I can't keep on feeling bad about everything I've said or done...

    So, it's about eight o'clock at night,

    Look At That

      I invite you to picture this in your mind. Early one spring morning I had been wakened by sunshine and tempted out into the garden.  Not wishing to wake my husband, just flung on a robe and shoes and out I went for a spot of weeding.  A bit later, feeling chilly, back...

    Shopping Cart Rage--Not

    A rather successful outing today, decent parking, a working cart and plenty of room to move around, and it’s a good thing, as I had a lot to contend with over there this afternoon. Of course it helps enormously that I was in a great mood and I was not in a rush.   The first...

    and it's best to acknowledge and accept them. Laugh about them because really...you yourself being able to find enjoyment in yourself is liberating and it makes you far more real than anyone else.

    "There is no point in taking life too seriously.

    You'll never make it out alive." I never developed the ability to laugh at myself until I developed more confidence in myself. When you have confidence in yourself, you don't give a rip what other people think. I can't count how many times I have been working and squatted down...
