Overcoming embarrassing moments - don't even worry about them

{Don't worry bout a thing - shedaisy}

Ever had a really embarrassing moment? I have two mortifying ones in my life. 
The second one happened yesterday. 

It's so easy to get caught up in these moments, replaying them over and over in your mind until they destroy all the self esteem you worked so hard for. And that's why I'm writing this post, to tell you DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT! People will forget these moments and five years down the road you're going to laugh about it anyways, right?! So why not just laugh about it RIGHT NOW! Brush it off and don't worry about it. 

It's in the past so don't let the embarrassment steal away your happiness that you deserve to have right now! Be happy that you have funny stories to tell your children and grandchildren down the road. Be thankful that you have something worth writing about in your journal tonight.

The motto I'm trying to live by is... 

"Life is only as _______ as you make it." 

For the sake of this post, I'm filling in that blank with AWKWARD. So life is only as awkward as you make it, and if I chose not be embarrassed by that moment, that is a choice that allows me to have my happiness and a peace of mind and it can't steal anything away from me. 

So next time something horrifically mortifying happens in your life, choose to laugh it off and embrace it. These moments are memories to be filed away for the days you need a good laugh! Also tell a friend about them so you can laugh together, it makes it more fun! And then they can remind you of the moment later down the road when you need a pick me up!
