Nurturing Thursday 23


The above picture was posted on her Facebook page, ‘Simple Truthful Life with Lizzie’, by my friend Lizzie Bennett RN.

The words underneath the smiling baby struck a chord with me ~ recent months have been shadowed by sudden bereavement, deep grief and personal injury. And not enough spontaneous joy.

So, to nurture myself this week, I plan to follow Lizzie’s advice and ‘take a giggle break’ as often as I possibly can. I may not LOL 300 times each day, like the average child is supposed to. (Is there such a thing? Really?)

But I’ll have a fun time, trying!

    • So am I, Gilly! When I attended my old school reunion a few years ago my classmates seemed to remember me by my infectious giggle. But it seems to have got lost somewhere in the mix ~ hopefully I’ll find it soon as I have been way too serious, for too long! πŸ™‚

  3. I believe we really, REALLY don’t (as a collective) enjoy life enough. I was reflecting on the sauterne, silent, mostly-compliant woman I am and realized that within I was shrieking “WHO THE HELL ARE YOU???” A tad bit of a disconnect.
    So I laughed out loud.
    I said to hell with it and left work early yesterday.
    I walked barefoot to get the mail.
    And I’m giving away free reflexology today to hell with the money.
    Life is truly good.

  14. I smile just thinking about the deep belly laughs of my baby daughter. I called her the Laughing Baby. We should all try and have a “300 Day,” every once in a while.
