Vacations ain't about travelling to an expensive or a far away place. It's about building and creating moments with the people you care about, things you'll never forget. Those are the greatest vacations you'll ever have.
Mindful Beauty day 14-Giggling
Everyday at our gym we post one silly joke for the day. Mathilde came up with this one.
I love silly jokes. I've always called them 3rd grade jokes but there seems to be a new movement calling them dad jokes.
There is nothing better, at least in my opinion, than giggling at a silly corny joke. I could listen to them all day, I could tell them all day. And quite often you’ll find me telling a few.
I think I like them because they’re so simple & innocent. I had a bad connotation to humor for a long time because I felt that most humor was usually making fun of someone or something. I dealt with suicidal thoughts & depression for a good portion of my younger life. And to avoid me having to deal with those issues I used humor to mask the pain I felt. I used humor to hide from people knowing what was going on with me. I didn’t use malicious humor, I was usually the class clown making sure EVERYONE else was happy.
I was embarrassed that I couldn’t figure out my purpose, or why I seemed like a failure and struggled so much when others seemed to have it altogether. But what I didn’t know, is that a lot of people were struggling just as much as I was, and I had made the story up in my mind that everyone had it all figured out.
I’ve overcome my thoughts of suicide by changing the story I told about myself, by learning to communicate and be open with others who cared about me. & what I found is that I wasn’t so weird or different as I so thought I was. I didn’t have to feel shame or guilt for what was going on with me because while I made mistakes, so did everyone else.
And while I thought everyone was judging me or laughing at me when I failed, I realized most people were just as busy trying to look like they had it altogether too. And I realized that the bullies, or the ones who laughed or wanted me to fail, really didn’t want me to fail…they were just hiding their insecurities—they were hiding the fears they felt for not being good enough.

Новое место, где играем в мафию - Подземка! Ведущий -старый, добрый (не всегда) Степан 😉 @mafiaclubnsk
Попадалась все время карта мирного! С одной стороны, не надо вести двойную жизнь и притворяться, с другой - играя мафией или маньяком, больше прёт адреналин!
