LAUGH AT ME

TODAY is about laughter.. do you know when you have finally "ARRIVED" when you can laugh at yourself... when you can describe yourself.. and laugh.. and not take all that is you so seriously.. Your imperfections are what make you uniquely you.. Today try and find something about you to laugh about.. Of course I wish I were a Victoria Secret's model.. but I am about as far south from that as you can get.. WAY DOWN SOUTH... My body.. is lumpy and bumpy in all the wrong places... I am wide where I should be curvey.. My legs look like tree stumps but .. they work.. and they are my legs.. You will never see my parading around in 4 inch heels.. I would fall.. its a fact.. My grace ... well. she left the building with Elvis.. and I tend to be more like the bull in the so called china shop.. but I am okay with that..
I am not dainty.. and sometimes I sound like a full blown cracker southerner.. one that can snore the shingles off the roof.. and I am proud of that.. No matter how much weight I loss I will never be what I fantasize to be.. but far more importantly I will be a better version of me.. I won't get taller.. I might get shorter.. and this too I am fine with.. because aside from my poundage.. I am pretty damn cool.. I am comfortable with me.. it took me a while to be able to say that.. and now I look forward to being more comfortable with me.. Perhaps its my age.. Welcome to 46.. I dunno.. frankly I just want to live.. and I thank God for my relative good health.. and I am blessed because every morning I wake up.. and look down and do not see a toe tag on my toe.. Hey baby.. I am alive.. ready to face.. another day... SO MY FRIENDS MAKE ME LAUGH!

Well laughter does good like a medicine and you have given me my laugh for the morning. Thanks I needed it. I have had a stressful week. Isn't it freeing to accept yourself. Have a great weekend.

Happy 46!! :D

It's silly! Because you know what first popped in my head when you mentioned Victoria Secret models? Guess!! You know what they say, a wolf in sheeps clothing! They shouldn't be dressing those gals up with halos and wings. We are truly the beautiful! And I mean that!!

Thanks for always bringing a smile to my face! Happy, happy FRIDAY!!!

HA! Same here. Bull in a china shop would describe me...I can hardly go a day without stubbing a toe.
