Laugh A Little

Actually… laugh a lot!

As they say, “Laughter is the best medicine” and I couldn’t agree more. You can’t go wrong with a great sense of humor. Even when you feel like shit, find a way to make yourself laugh, even if you have to fake the funk for a while. As a good friend of mine once said, “If you can make yourself laugh, you don’t need anybody.” Ha! And as cliche’ as it is, “Fake it, ’til you make it!”

The one thing I had completely forgotten about during the last 2 years of my life was my own sense of humor. I was so serious all the time with just about everything that I forgot what sarcasm was. It’s like I didn’t know how to rebuttal sarcasm with sarcasm and didn’t know how to crack jokes or even recite quotes from my favorite comedies and be clever about it. I took everything so seriously and personally that my personality went from Jen’s fucking hilarious to Jen’s boring and um…awkward. Super lame!

So guess what? I started watching all of my old favorite comedies, even if I didn’t “feel” like it. The more I watched them, the more I began to cure myself of being so comically deranged! I started to laugh more and be less serious.

I know there’s always a right time to be serious, but there’s always time, anytime, to have a sense of humor! So if you feel like shit, find a way to make yourself laugh until it becomes a habit. You won’t regret it, I promise! Cheers!

Happy Thanksgiving Day!

I know this holiday is being celebrated in the United States today, but I wish everyone from all around the world a Happy Thanksgiving Day!

To me, Thanksgiving Day is more than just stuffing your face with a whole bunch of festive Thanksgiving food, it’s actually taking the time to give thanks to everything and everyone you are thankful for with deep appreciation, even though this should be celebrated every day. However, it’s a well celebrated holiday here in the states, so let’s go with that.

So, what am I thankful for with deep appreciation?

Dear Fellow Bloggers

You guys are awesome! Really, you are!

I’ve been back in Southern California for about a week and I’m ready to leave again!

Southern California, in its essence, is great. However, I’ve come to realize that there are way too many people here and the energy from all the people who take this place for granted have been super rough on me. I’ll blog about all that shit some other time. Maybe when I finally get my ass up to Montana!

Donating For A Great Cause

Lately, I’ve come to realize just how infinite money is and its never ending circulation.

Money, currency, cheddar, whatever you want to call it, is pure energy. It’s a wonderful and powerful tool that allows us to create the life we want to experience. However, it’s easy to get caught up in thinking that this type of tool is limited and that we never have enough.

A Little Something For My Mom

Any time I’m in Sedona, Arizona, I try to swing by the Chapel of the Holy Cross.

I’m not Catholic but my mom was. She tried to get me and both of my sisters to go to church all the time with her when we were younger but never forced us.

We were all baptized as Catholics but out of the three of us, I was the only one who never received Confirmation and Holy Communion. So yeah, I wasn’t allowed to eat the bread and drink the grape juice.

Tonight Is The Night!

I just arrived in my hometown of Twentynine Palms, California. Woot woot! And I’m so happy to be here! I was able to grab a room at the 29 Palms Inn and it has everything I need for tonight’s once in a century appearance!

Tonight is the full moon and it’s not just an ordinary full moon, it’s a blood moon and it’s the longest total lunar eclipse of the century! Yeah buddy! This one is definitely a rare fella.
