A Happy Girls Journey with Cancer

Music and Laughter Make My World Spin

Many people have asked how I manage to stay happy when things in my life are less than perfect, and I usually say something along the lines of “Oh well you know I just remain positive.” This is true, but there’s more to it than that. Today I’m going to share my key to happiness and if you read to the bottom you may get a good laugh also!

Most days I laugh…a lot! I laugh out loud when I read books and then usually try to tell Owen what was funny, but it never seems as funny when I say it. If I’m going to watch tv I like to watch shows that are funny and will make me laugh. If you haven’t watched 2 Broke Girls you should check it out because it’s pretty funny.

I have a little cocker spaniel whose’s name is Georgia, she is almost always doing something that requires a chuckle. If I give her a cherry tomato she will bat it around the floor and pounce on it like she is killing her prey. How can you not laugh at a dog who will steal a cucumber and eat all the peel off?


Music has always been a big part of my life. I have always loved to dance. So when I’m feeling down I turn on some music and I dance around my kitchen. I like different types of music, but for some reason I really like music that has swearing in it. Not hard core rap, but poppy dancey stuff that you wouldn’t expect to have swearing. I don’t know what it is, but it cracks me up! Because I don’t have kids, I don’t feel the need to sensor my music so I have a wide range of stuff and always seem to buy the explicit version. If you haven’t heard Thrift Shop by Mackelmore & Ryan Lewis you need to because the song is great, but the video is even better!!

If all else fails I will take silly pictures. I have a Mac and there is a program called “Photo Booth” and you can take pictures that distorts your face. My sister and I tend to take pictures and send them to each other and by the time we are done I am in tears because I am laughing so hard.

So if you stuck it out and read this post, here’s a few pictures to help get you through your day (Rachel and Owen I apologize for this in advance, but I couldn’t just put the picture of me on here!!).
