Thrift Shop

1vpinIn the above photo the crinkles are the results of my locs being braided for 2 days. Often I’m kind of silly at home around my son mostly but I realized not many people get to see that side of me especially when I hear a song I looooove..  I’ll get my “ELLEN” dance moves going on….lol  A dancer.. I AM NOT but silly yes.

The other day while my son & I was listening to one of my theme songs, “Thrift Shop” by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis featuring Wanz, I jokingly said, “I should where one of my thrift shop outfits and use this song”  My son gave me the “oh lawd” look so because I took that as a challenge I did it LOL.

Besides, there are plenty of benefits to laughter. They say laughter is the best medicine. When I’m at work the one sure way to know if I’m there is to listen for my laugh because it’s VERY loud!! I can’t help it 🙂  I love to laugh.  According to experts  the benefits to laughter are:


       Physical Health Benefits:

  • Boosts immunity
  • Lowers stress hormones
  • Decreases pain
  • Relaxes your muscles
  • Prevents heart disease
       Mental Health Benefits:

  • Adds joy and zest to life
  • Eases anxiety and fear
  • Relieves stress
  • Improves mood
  • Enhances resilience
       Social Benefits:

  • Strengthens relationships
  • Attracts others to us
  • Enhances teamwork
  • Helps defuse conflict
  • Promotes group bonding

and in my opinion, NOT ENOUGH people do it… Many people take themselves too serious. Life is too short. If you have drama/unhappiness in your life simply remove it and move on..BE HAPPY because you had a life before the drama right?
