No, that’s not a typo. I mean it. Boof-ball. It’s a silly word that my husband came up with to explain my antics one particular night. Boof of boofy is a combination of the words goofy and beautiful. An action that brings love, laughter, and bliss all together. We liked the way it sounded and needless to say, it’s stuck ever since.
I believe that life is about FUN. There are times when you have to be serious or times that aren’t really all the best, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t have a good time at all. It’s easy for us to get sucked into the pity vortex. I know first hand, I’ve been there plenty of times myself. Then I realized something. I am in charge of my life and how I feel. I can choose to be part of this sadness or I can choose to overcome it. Now I make sure to always include an element of fun in everything I do. If I am working, I take little breaks to hula hoop or sing or jump. I make sure that there is still plenty of playtime and time spent with others doing the things that I love. We can get wrapped up in what other people think of and treat us, or we can let our awesome-ness shine and be the best we can be. I think being ME sounds a lot more fun that being someone else’s version of me, don’t you think?
