Hey, Y’all! Today I’m keeping it short and sweet… and Hilarious! With some Monday meme action – ADHD style! Sometimes, we just need to laugh at ourselves and/or our situation. If we take everything in life seriously, we’ll always be explosive bundles of nerves. Laughing really does defuse the tension bomb and make for a better day. I came across this meme a couple days ago, and I knew it was the perfect subject for this week’s Happy Monday post. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve said Homer’s exact words to someone. In fact, it’s so bad between my daughters and I that we’ve begun saying it to each other on purpose. Then, dissolving into fits of laughter at how ridiculous we sound. For instance, yesterday’s conversation:
Daughter: Okay, so in this part, you have to get the magicians in front and put the warriors in the back because it’s mostly a magic battle. If you win, you need to immediately switch back to your other configuration because the calvary will attack.
Me: Wait, go back and tell me how to switch the thing with the other thing while saving the first thing!
Daughter: Well, that was a descriptive mother… I’ll explain; first, you go to this thing and save the first thing, then you trade this thing for this thing and exit back to the main thing
Me: Oh okay that makes sense
Both: (looks at each other) laughs hysterically
It didn’t make sense, and we both knew it. That was the beauty of it, though! When things like this happen, we can choose one of two things: dwell in the embarrassment or rejoice in the comedy. We choose to rejoice in the comedy at my house. Why? Because life is more fun that way! So, next time you forget something in public, just lean into and laugh. Think of Homer, or of my daughter and I. Go full-on with the thing that makes you laugh at the thing 😜. Well, I hope you’re having an amazing day. If not, maybe this can help you get in a chuckle or two and turn that frown upside down. Remember, Monday is a fresh start and the best day of the week! Stay Positive, Stay Motivated, but most of all – have a HAPPY MONDAY! Until next time…
