Even If I Win This Game, I Lose

Last Saturday, a friend texted me about something that an organization, we are both affiliated with, did to her that was not very nice. In order to make her feel better, I texted her back, telling her about something that they did to me that wasn't very nice. She then texted me back with something that they did to her that was even more outrageous than my story. So I texted her back with an even more outrageous thing that they had done to me. Soon we were caught up in this game - a very sick game of trying to top each other's stories by remembering really unpleasant incidents with this organization. I soon realized that even if I should win this game, I lose.

A relative reached out to us offering us a place to live until we 'got it together'. However, we found ourselves in a situation that was a bit frustrating for both of us. My daughter told me the idea she had for dealing with our less than ideal situation that worked and I think is pretty amazing. [VIDEO]

Feel Good - Laughter Is The Best Medicine

Wambui talks about the important role that laughter plays in our lives. Laughter is about feeling good. "Lighten up", she says. 'Don't take life to seriously. See the humor in things. However, never laugh at the expense of someone else. Laughter should be inclusive and embrace those around you. Laughter is not about putting someone down, but lifting yourself up."

These are the benefits of laughter that are mentioned in the video from an article entitled 'Laughter Is The Best Medicine' on the site by Lawrence Robinson, Melinda Smith, M.A., and Jeanne Segal, Ph.D.

Laughter relaxes the whole body.Laughter boosts the immune system.Laughter triggers the release of endorphins.Laughter protects the heart. Laughter burns calories. Laughter lightens anger’s heavy load. Laughter may even help you to live longer. [VIDEO]

The Power of Forgiveness

Forgiveness is not something that you do for the person who hurt you or did you wrong in some way. forgiveness is for you - yourself. Forgiving someone allows you to take your power back from the person who treated you badly. When you feel anger or even hate toward someone, it does not have any affect on the person you don't like. However, it does cause the one with the hate and anger to be stressed, possible be more prone to health issues like high blood pressure, and miss out on a lot joy you might have in you life. [VIDEO]
