Laughter is the best medicine

Some days the %%$T hits the fan.

Have you ever had one of those terrible awful, weeks?

I did.

This week I lost two jobs I had counted on.
A person backed out of an upcoming show I am doing. Someone said they weren’t going to pay me what they had promised.

All of this while I am moving and rehearsing a show called Laughter Is the Best Medicine.

But I wasn’t laughing.

Due to family stressors of late I began feeling more anxiety than usual.

I didn’t know what to do. I started rushing. Rushing and not knowing what to do is a dangerous combo.

One friend said, ” You need anti-depressants.” The other said, “The universe is trying to teach you something.”

These two sentences might be true, but they didn’t help me feel better.

What did make me feel better is my friend Lucille, who said, “You don’t have to like this. But you do have to accept it.

So I tried that. Tried just accepting the reality of the situation without adding any more drama to the storyline. Phewf.

Acceptance meant I could let go of what I can’t control.

So here are 5 tips for getting through one of those weeks:

1) Do the Next Right Thing: When the person backed out I rehearsed the show a different way.I didn’t waste energy on telling what happened.

2) Ask For Help: I had great friends supported me in setting boundaries with the potential “non-payer.” In the end she did not like me but she did pay me..

3) Do One Thing: I made a list of other clients and asked them if they were hiring speakers.

4) Go for a Walk. I walk and talk to myself and sort things out. Its a perfect way to get better ideas.

5) Know this too shall pass: One bad week doesn’t define you as a person.
So enough of the pep talk, I am going out for a walk to de-stress. may not be back for a bit.
