Someone once said to me, “Your jokes aren’t funny.”
I’m funny…dammit! Or at least I am when I’m being me. When I’m walking with my head high and comfortable in my skin, I’m pretty funny. I think about the times when I can make people laugh hard and it’s when I’m just being me. At that moment I wasn’t…I was uncomfortable and put on the spot and I felt like I was being judged. One could say the sex is better when you are comfortable in your own skin and don’t feel any judgement as well. Or so I’ve heard.
I’m in a much better place when I have confidence in myself and my decisions. I don’t go off the deep end when my mom comments on something I’ve said or done or when my son misbehaves and makes me question my parenting. I’m in a great place where I am making the best decisions I’m capable of (most of the time – HEY I’m human). And when I’m in a much better place, I’m funnier. Just ask my dad. He laughs at all my jokes.
I’m a little high maintenance. I’m kind of all over the place sometimes. I will give you the shirt off my back. I’m a natural born mother and I will mother you. I’m chipper in the morning. I’m sickeningly positive. Deal with it or move on. Worse things have happened to you I’m sure. (I’m not angry btw and that is not said with tone.)
Here are my favorite three songs when I’m feeling less confidence than I should:
Make lots of noise and follow your arrow wherever it points.
