Yesterday I was recording some coaching videos for my YouTube Channel, something that I really enjoy doing and should really do more of – right here and now I declare to raise my standards of serving you all and I make the decision to create more amazing content via videos on YouTube 😀 (How’s that for following my own motto and practicing what I preach 😉 ) Anyway, I really am not the most technical savvy person – in fact I think technology sees me coming sometimes and thinks ‘hey we can have a right laugh with this one’ … ahem. So, I really don’t edit my videos in any way – they are pure, passionate and raw.
Today I spent time going through watching them with my Mum to see how they looked, sounded and if they truly got the message across that I intended. I’m pleased to say that they did – all but one but for a funny reason. I have this ability to simply tune into a phrase, quote or topic and then talk about until the cows come home without an auto-cue, without a script and without any notes what-so-ever. This can be a good thing and a slightly annoying skill to have at times.
This one video that I was watching with my Mum provoked more Belly laughs than I’ve had in a long time. I assume as it was the final video I recorded I was immensely tired and my brain wasn’t performing at it’s best. I would love to share it with you … maybe one day – and you can experience the belly laughs too.
But the key thing I wanted to point out here was that I had a choice when it came to witnessing what a mess up I made of this one video. I had 2 options.
- Cry, think bad of myself, tell myself what a silly/useless/clueless…etc person I was for messing it up
- Or I could laugh at myself with love and see the funny side to innocent mistakes & bloopers that really make me ME.
I’m so glad that I chose the 2nd option because it truly meant that Mum and I had a good 30 minutes of hard giggles as we simply couldn’t get past the sections in the video without laughing. This loving laughter (not sinister, negative based or egotistical) created a force-field around me of goodness, positivity, and fun which will attract to me more of the same.
So the thing to remember is when things don’t always go to plan (which would be pretty boring half the time if they did), and you end up taking a little detour into less than perfection, you have the choice to laugh or cry. Crying will make you feel worse and you will end up seeing things as being much worse than they really are, and Laughing will make you feel amazing, and you will any seeming problem as a flag of joy rather than pain in your life. I’d choose to laugh!
Have you ever had something happen to you and you had the same choice? (I know you have!) What did you choose? How did it feel when you chose to Laugh at yourself and/or the situation? Leave a comment below and spread some happiness this Friday
What miracles have you experienced today? How can I be of service to you? What Miracles would you have me perform for you?
(Is there anything you would like me to write about / coach on / teach you?)
