Time to get embarrassed

Haaaayyy Friday, haaaay. You took entirely too long to get here! Here is that awkward transition where I try to just dive into today's post :)

I'll say it...I have a fun life. I'm not afraid to admit that.

This doesn't mean my life is perfect, far near that actually. I just make a conscious, and daily decision to fill my life with people who bring joy to me, who will relish in my happiness beside me. I also make a daily decision to not let the small things get under my skin (for too long).

To realize that when I have a bad hair day; at least I have hair to complain about.

Even when my nails don't look great; at least I have hands to use.

When my car acts funny; I still have one that gets me from A to B.

Whenever I'm sick; I still have insurance.

Even if I don't feel like working; I'm incredibly blessed with a full time job.

I know that you know how easy it is to let life get to you, or get you down. Next time that happens, I challenge you to find it within yourself to embrace the messy hair days, those terrible gas prices, the spilled coffee, or whatever your crazy days may bring you.

When you find yourself stressed about something (I need to take my own advice sometimes), take a few seconds, and breathe. Aaaahhh... better?

Then, have yourself a dance party, make a fool of yourself, jump around just because, or sing at the top of your longs even if you suck. What, you don't know how? See below, and take notes.

I understand that most of these pictures include me and someone else acting completely dumb, but hey... its my life, and I like it that way.

So I shall continue...

Pretty much.... I just want you to choose happiness.

    I love that you mention trying to embrace the days where things aren't going our way, and not letting little things get to us for very long.
