Okay so…I was supposed to make you lovelies guess the origin of the quotes from yesterday and reveal them today, but I forgot. (I listed the authors in the quotes.) Honestly, I prefer to do it that way so I’m going to continue doing that!
“Comedy is simply a funny way of being serious.” – Peter Ustinov
Finally, I have an appeal to authority that proves it’s okay to always be 50% serious and 50% joking! 😉 Seriously, I’m almost never 100% serious about anything.

When I got my jaw surgery, I still saw myself as a badass. Just a swollen-faced badass who couldn’t speak for a week and went on to live off of mashed potatoes and soup for the next month and a half. In comparison to other patients, my recovery was way above the average because my mentality was “I’m going to pull through this.” If you mentally prepare yourself for obstacles, you’ll be amazed what you can do.
