Day 4: Don’t Take Yourself So Seriously



Don’t take yourself so seriously

Don’t walk around as if you are carrying the whole world

That it will tilt when you smile

That it will shake when you giggle

That it will fall when you chuckle.

Don’t be afraid

To be funny

To be tad silly

To express yourself freely.

Some people actually wish

That you don’t take yourself so seriously

Because your frown lines aren’t lovely!

It’s Day 4 of Feeling Good! And I have a question for you!

Being the First Lady, what would you do to make the whole nation smile?

Please click for other days.

Now don’t take the question seriously if your husband isn’t the President, okay?

But hey, you can convince him to run.

Seriously, think about it — to not be afraid to loosen up.

A joyful heart is good medicine, But a broken spirit dries up the bones.

– Proverbs 17:22

    Take care Alan.

      Wow! I am totally awed by the power of the universe! I have just mentioned to Luna how the universe has a way of sending someone in our thoughts and here you are! How can I not think about my most creative friend here in blog land with that outfit? lol!

      I totally understand being ‘busy’. It has cost my visits to my blog friends and I can’t tell you how much I missed you and others. You’re all in my heart, so dear. One of these days I will bolt in to your place without knocking! My kiddos will surely smile with the love you sent to them. Thank you so much Alan! Blessings to you and your family 🙂

        Thank you! Glad all is okay. I saw that JMJblog had gone, hope she is okay and maybe is so busy getting book deals she had to close her blog 😉 Always a pleasure, god bless 😉 Take care Alan.

        • bendedspoon Says:

          Yes, JMJ’s subscriber name in my blog is now ‘No more blogging’. I hope too that she is happy busy and it’s her dream come true if she’s signing now her published book! Let’s not be surprised if we receive each a copy from her 🙂
