Have you ever met someone who was bigger than life? You know – someone whose laugh is bigger or louder. Someone who practically screams when she laughs. Someone whose fashion is bolder, brighter, wilder than you would ever think of buying. Oh – you avoid those people? Big mistake! We all need that person in our lives.
We all need the friend who is going to help us find that temporary respite from the heaviness of the day. With everything that is going on around us today it is hard to avoid sinking into depression or giving up. It is equally as hard trying all the time to be the one who brings smiles and laughs to the faces of those around you when you are hurting inside.
It is good to know you can pick up the phone and talk to someone you know who is going to make you smile or laugh. Even if for just a few minutes – it can be a great few minutes. We also need to remember is that there are occasions when that person needs us to be the wacky person in their life. It is not a planned thing. It just happens organically when it is someone you love. You both just know. So, embrace your inner wackiness. Do not be shy. Do not be embarrassed. Just let go! We all need a little wackiness in our lives to get through the day. Heaven knows there are days when the people around me wonder why I am laughing to myself or at myself. It’s OK to take a moment and just give yourself over to the happiness you feel even if you are the only one who knows what it is. Try it and give yourself a break.
