You think I forgot the Mental Moment?\
Not a chance, I have been immersed in Mental Moments all day.
I just um.. thought, well I got confused and thought that it was here.
So it’s a quicky, like a puff of air. :-)
Today’s Mental Moment
Was actually yesterdays but its ok. We all goof and it’s how you recover that matters.
Nobody likes to mess up. Especially publicly. Can you imagine what it would be like to mess up on tv?
I would think that if you are any type of anxious person who relives mistakes and doesn;t give yourself a break .. a perfectionist maybe, that tv would be the last place you would want to have a job.
Lots of things that are really horribly embarrassing, I think shouldn’t be because we all do them. I laugh too I’m not saying I don’t and yes I would be feeling silly and blushing and apologetic but the important thing is
It’s not worth getting all bent up over, or hiding. I mean let’s sit here for a minute and think about what the true ramifications of things like:
Spinach in your teeth
TP on your shoe
Ladies – your skirt tucked into your pantyhose
Gents – your fly is open
Passing a little gas
A sudden burp
You picking up what I am laying down for you?
Nobody likes to get laughed at and especially not for something on the above list ( +many others) but really all those little spontaneous … mishaps do is remind us that we are human and keep it interesting.
Laugh the hardest when it’s you who opens your mouth to speak and oops…or its you who bends over and … oh dear! I do..laugh with myself harder than anyone else will.
Like my great-grandmother always said (one on my mom’s side)
Better to fart and bear the shame than not to fart and bear the pain
Wise words and I say forget the shame
It’s all human and I don’t think there should be any shame in being human.
Check out how this weatherman weathers the winds from the south….
Enjoy! (and laugh! )
