crying gives me a headache
hello hello and happy monday ! i hope you all had a wonderful weekend. this morning i wanted to share my thoughts on happiness. i know we hear about it all the time, it's always a common reoccurring theme. sometimes we get caught up in a day-to-day routine. let me share mine: 6:00 alarm goes off, snooze until 6:30-40. get up, get ready, eat breakfast, go to school. after school i go to work. after work i complete items on my to-do list (i.e. homework, watercolors for customers, groceries, laundry UGH, clean, make dinner, plan blog posts, etc.) the list is endless. that's my problem. the list never ends...
when i get caught in this routine and endless to-do lists i forget the important things. i forget that aaron needs aaron and kat time, i forget i need to study my scriptures, i forget that not everything on my list needs to get done that very day. when i don't complete all the things on my list i cry. i have certain expectations i set for myself and when they don't happen the way i would like i just cry! it's somewhat pathetic! here's a favorite quote of mine:
"the only way to get through life is to laugh your way through it. you either have to laugh or cry. i prefer to laugh. crying gives me a headache.” - marjorie hinckley
doesn't that quote alone just make you laugh? i love it and i think of that every time i'm crying over something. it's sooooo much better to just laugh about it. find the joy in life, most of the time that is easier said than done! what helps me is to write down what makes me happy and find things to laugh about. life is good my friends. :) have a great week!
