i often think of my life before. before all of these changes and before my life moved on without me. life before was work, meetings, travel, blank faces in a crowd and empty feelings in my bed.
that life before never filled my heart with an emotion that kept me alive through a night of sweating down the barrel and believe me, that life, it never fulfilled me and never gave me laughter.
i laugh to remind myself that i am still here and that despite all of the things that happened, i can laugh and feel inspired.
when i felt like my journey was interrupted and i felt lost, laughter found me. and i felt better.
the better i felt, the more i laughed. this cycle continues today and i can be heard laughing even when others want to quit. my laughter inspires others. my laughter fills my belly and encourages me to be more.
because puppies + babies make everyone smile. unless you’re a monster.
