Lighten up!

Sometimes the pressures of life can come banging on our door early in the morning like an unwanted guest. Usually when this happens you may go about with a stale face like you’ve been sucking on a lemon all morning. Lighten up, this too shall pass. I will be the first to admit that sometimes I dread being an adult. Oh the good old days when I was a child and I only had to worry about the Buggie Monster, or doing my chores so that I could go outside and then I’d have nightmares about my brother drinking my kool-aid. Now the Buggie Monster has been replaced with bills, my chores has been replaced with too many things to do and not enough time and my nightmares has been replaced with getting off work only to come home and sleep then dream about work just to get up and go to work again. 😑 Tuesday was definitely my Monday but that all changed by the afternoon and my frown turned upside down and a smile crept through and then a laugh! No I didn’t win the lottery but I got something that’s priceless instead. Someone came along and lightened my load by simply making me laugh. After I laughed I felt a thousand times better and my problems seemed like a small thing to a giant! Afterwards I told myself “See, you need to lighten up! Everything will be ok! What are you worrying for?” (Matthew 6:25-34) Sometimes we want to be alone when life throws us it’s many challenges but during that time we need to embrace our family and friends and focus on what’s more important. The people that are close to you don’t want to see you down and I guarantee if you surround yourself with people close to you then you’ll feel better. Even if you’re good at hiding what you’re going through somehow they know when something is wrong and without asking you a thing they’ll do something to take a load off and a lot of times it’s doing something as simple as making you laugh!😬😂 Thank God for family and friends! Here’s to you guys for reminding us that life is to grand to sweat the small stuff, cherish the people around you, take a load off and lighten up. ☺️
