Confessions of a cry baby.

I heard a quote today that says: ” The only way to get through life is to laugh your way through it.  You either have to laugh or cry.  I prefer to laugh.  Crying gives me a headache.”  By Marjorie Pay Hinckley.  I myself, am a cry baby.  I cry at the drop of a hat and often.  I recently started school and the first day was tough on me.  I cam home and cried.  Later, the car had issues and it was going to cost a lot to fix it.  We just don’t have the money.  So I cried then a friend passed away and I cried.  All this crying is making me a nervous wreck, the more I stew and cry over something, the more anxiety and stress I feel.  So I tried something new.  I decided when I started to feel under pressure and worried or scared that I would smile or laugh.  This has really helped a lot.  I made a list of things to do to relieve the stress, the first thing is to breathe, then smile, then pray.  I want to be more like Marjorie Pay Hinckley and laugh my way through life rather than cry my way through it.  So this is my goal for now.
