Our WOW was humor and nothing tickled me as much as taking a few trips down memory lane.
My friend Anita and I recalled my turtle adventure as well as my hanging sausage imitation para-sailing with the fab four (Renee, Cynthia, Anita and me.) We texted back and forth remembering when Cee Lo’s “#$%@ You” song came out. It was a particularly challenging time in our lives, so we danced wildly to it, releasing some much needed endorphins.)
Thinking about next week being the two year anniversary of this on-line venture (which started out as “FLUFFI”), I was perusing the last years’ worth of WOW videos.
Talk about HUMOROUS!
Not the videos so much, but my HAIRSTYLES tickled my funny bone! In fact, there’s even one where I didn’t bother to do my hair at ALL (what was I thinking?)
I see how my fonts changed along with my hair color. Which also reflected what was going on inside of me at the time. What I find encouraging is that the new posts look brighter – and it’s not the lighting. It’s ME. I’m lighter (well, not just in pounds, but on the inside.)
I also chuckled because my face is SO expressive, it’s hard to stop the recording at a place that would be a normal “smile.”
With me, it’s all teeth or furrowed brows, rolled eyes and hand gestures.
I’d be a terrible poker player.
More about this website’s landmark anniversary next week, but for now, parting thoughts on HUMOR and the NEW Word of the Week:
I think my take on the word RESPONSIBILITY was tempered with my week-long quest to lighten up.
Like I said in the video, taking on burdens that aren’t ours to bear is NOT what responsibility is all about. It’s about getting OUR stuff done, being true to our commitments and making decisions that support them.
And I’m sure by this time next week, we’ll have a whole lot more to say on that subject!
Have a beautiful week, everyone –
