Lately, there has been so many serious things going on.
And people often feel you either have to feel sadness or joy; it has to be one
or the other. We can’t have both at the same time.
I’m here to tell you that when life is serious, people are grieving or facing life’s challenges,
we should bring humour into it when we can. Why? Because it’s already serious enough!
So I’m going to dare you today, to share one of your most embarrassing moments with me. Because it you can’t laugh at yourself—you’re taking life too seriously!
I've had many situations to choose from. But this is the most embarrassing moment
that I could think of. I don’t think I’ve ever shared this before. Here it goes:
It was several years ago when Geordie and I were dating; a time when I really wanted to impress his parents… especially his mom. We were at the Hidden Valley Beach in Huntsville.
I had gotten dressed in a very big hurry, threw my bathing suit on and left.
Geordie’s mom arrived at the beach and was walking toward me. I was lying in a lawn
chair in my bathing suit. Suddenly, my friend looked over and said, “Are you wearing your underwear???” They were the same colour as my bathing suit, so I thought—when I was rushing—that I had put my suit on. My mother-in-law was close so there was nothing I
could do but lie there and hope and pray that she would not notice….that I was indeed in
my underwear! I told my friend not to say a word and to please get me a towel ASAP!!
To this day, I have no idea if Nancy, my lovely mother-in-law, realized and wondered.
Wow… I felt so hot and I know I was beet red! That was embarrassing!!
So…I dare you to share an embarrassing story so that we can all have a good laugh.
Because sometime life to too much and we go through hard stuff. We need a break.
And if we can’t laugh at each other, we are taking ourselves too seriously! So let’s hear it...
What was your most embarrassing moment???
