Q-Tip 11/18/19

Happy Monday My Dear Friends,

We all need humor in our lives. It is a great stress reliever as well as helps kick in the endorphins which possesses health benefits for us as well. Sometimes a good laugh makes things seem a little lighter than perhaps you first thought. So today our focus will be on the power of laughter in our letter of positivity and encouragement

“Humor is our way of defending ourselves from life’s absurdities by thinking absurdly about them.” (Lewis Mumford)
There’s almost nothing that can’t be helped with a healthy dose of humor. We could rail in anger and frustration about our relationships, work, politics, or the world in general. But it’s a lot more fun-and more useful-to laugh instead. Taking life with a dose of humor can relieve stress, improve mood, help us cope with change, and put things into clearer perspective.
Instead of becoming annoyed today, I will look for humor in whatever it is that is threatening to irritate me. (Linda Picone)

I slept and I dreamed that life is all joy.I woke and I saw that life is all service. I served and I saw that serve is joy. (Kahlil Gibran)
Life is a big canvas, throw all the paint on it you can. (Danny Kaye)
The sexiest curve on your body is your smile. Flaunt it! (Unknown)
Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter won’t mind. (Dr. Seuss)
Those who bring sunshine to the lives of other cannot keep it from themselves. (James Matthew Barrie)

Happy Monday my Friends,
It has been a while and on my mind that as we approach the holidays, things tend to get more stressful than usual. So I wanted to send some words of positivity and encouragement so we don’t forget that each of us needs to take a moment to breathe and enjoy each and every day.
