Most days I blog about silly things. Those are usually my favorites.
I think being able to laugh at life is a blessing.
Like the wonderful Marjory Hinckley said,
"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."
Other times though, I feel like I am overwhelmed with thoughts and honestly,
that's when my best writing comes out.
So lets get get real today...
I guarantee that you have felt this way at least ONCE in your life and if you haven't,
I applaud you.
(Liar liar pants on fire!)
Let me paint you a little picture...
You are scrolling through your blog feed and you see a post from one of your favorite bloggers,
Oh goody- you think to yourself.
You click on it and are overwhelmed by pretty pictures and smiling faces and cute stories.
Ahhh. You think. I wish I had a life as fun and exciting as that.
Or you go to the store and you see a young mom who has two perfect babies and she has her hair done and makeup perfect and you slowly slouch by in your sweats and greasy hair. You reach for the peanut butter hoping that yesterdays deodorant is still doing its job.
How does she DO it? You say to yourself.
Let me share some secrets with you. . .
Sure, that mom is probably awesome and beautiful, but she has her days too.
And yes, that blogger seems to have the perfect life,
But I GUARANTEE that someone has thought that about YOU too.
I had a friend comment about my blog and wondered how I "do it" and you know what I did?
I laughed. I said, "I fake it. I usually only post the good stuff because that's what I want to remember."Makes sense right?
I'm all for documenting the great things of life.
But I challenge YOU...
I challenge you to post about the other stuff too.
Did your husband forget to pick up his socks again?
Did your baby have a major diaper explosion in the middle of the mall?
It happens guys! I can vouch for that.
Blog about it!
Make it funny.
Lets laugh together because the alternative is crying... and well, that's just stupid.
If you turn it into a sob fest, I WILL go kid history on you...
(Not sure what I mean by that)
Facebook status' (Stati?) ARE not diaries folks!
Unless it's a great way to segway into a blog post...
Marketing... like a boss.
But not really because I just make this up as I go.
This is me... Laughing.
