Quote of the day.
Stop over-analysing. It probably isn’t as bad as you think, or as stupid as you think, or as embarrassing as you think. We blow up everything in our minds, and usually for the worst. Stop worrying. Stop creating problems where there are none. Just keep laughing, keep going, and keep being you. Keep living – even through those awkward moments.
Don’t lose those parts of you that make you think outside the box. Don’t lose those parts of you that keep you grounded. Don’t lose those parts of you that make you laugh uncontrollably, love unconditionally and live unapologetically. Don’t keep trying to fit inside someone else’s lines. Don’t lose those parts of you that make you you.
She let out a laugh, and then she put her hand over her mouth, like she was angry at herself for forgetting her sadness – Jonathan Safran Foer
To laugh is to be powerful. Sometimes, all it takes is a laugh to bring ourselves some clarity about what is important in life, to forget our troubles, how ever briefly, and to lift ourselves out of a darker place. It can be easy to get tangled in frustration, anger or disappointment in ourselves, but if we can learn to laugh at ourselves, laugh at the mistakes we make and laugh at the chaotic, we will feel lighter for it. Let yourself laugh uncontrollably. Let yourself laugh unexpectedly. To laugh is to lead mind over matter.
