Eddie and I made it back to London safe and sound after our quick trip to my parents house in Yorkton, Saskatchewan for the weekend.
Our day of travel was long as it started at 7:00 am when we left my parents house for Regina and then didn’t arrive into London until 7:30 pm.
But, despite the long exhausting day of travel, we laughed a lot. Especially when I was able to get through security with all of this
2 Ziploc bags of salmon
1 Ziploc bag of turkey
1 Ziploc bag of cherries and 1 Ziploc bag of baby carrots and sugar snap peas
2 bags of Aero chocolates, 1 apple, and 1 orange
To be honest, I get quite a thrill going through security with all of this food. So, every time I travel it’s like a game for me – “what can I bring through with me this time!? ”
I couldn’t bare the thought of leaving the most perfectly grilled salmon and delicious turkey at my parents house for them to eat
clearly I am not good a sharing so, I brought it all home with me
Eddie only got a few bites of turkey if you were wondering. The salmon was all mine
While on the plane, we laughed even more at the pictures my Mom took of us while tubing this weekend at Good Spirit Lake where we have a cabin.
That last one is my favourite. It should be framed.
As I was laughing hysterically at myself on the plane, I realized that I wasn’t able to do that in the past. And then I began to think and realize even more about myself and how I’ve changed…
In the past I took myself far too seriously and maybe that’s why I struggled when dealing with perfection. A few years ago, I wasn’t able to just let go and be silly. Like I said, I took myself far too seriously. I was too absorbed in what people thought of me, so I wasn’t my true silly self.
But over the years, I’ve learnt to love me for me. The silliness and all and I am actually able to laugh at myself now.
It sounds kind of silly, but some of the awkward faces in the pictures above would have made me really embarrassed in the past and I would have deleted them right away and now here I am sharing them with all of you.
It’s about confidence and learning that perfection isn’t possible.
And most of all, life is more fun when you laugh
So, today I want you to go out, be your very true self, and laugh at least once! Then, come back here and tell me what made you laugh today Feel free to laugh at yourself, too! I laugh at myself every day
Have you struggled with confidence and perfection in the past? Can you laugh at yourself and still be proud of who you are? Do you like tubing? Which picture is your favourite?
