Josh and Paul Helped Me Find My Switch

28 Mar

Sometimes it just doesn’t happen for me naturally. I’m used to the energy just flowing out of me, but sometimes I can’t find it. The colors get muted. The lights go out. It doesn’t happen and it’s hard.

I suffer from emotional hangovers, just like everyone else,and when that happens I’ve got to work at it. I feel so much I get lost in emotion and trying to find the funny seems impossible when I can’t find my laugh. Sometimes it even causes writing sabbaticals, but I’ve found that Josh and Paul helped me get back on track.

When I can’t find the laughter I look for it outside. Josh Gad and Paul Rudd helped me break through the clouds.



After piercing through, I remembered … I don’t live there … I have these dark moments, but I don’t live there. Laughter broke the spell and I found pieces of me trickling back into place.

I flipped the switch and found the trust. I trusted that I was better than the moment I was stuck in, and I was able to turn it around.

The day didn’t end up being a ten, but it was better and I was looking for better.

Buen Camino, my friends. Hoping your day gets better, and hoping that laughter helps make it happen.

    Hola, muchacha! Long time no see! I am writing from Puerto Rico where I am visiting my mama! It’s been incredibly wonderful! I do the exact thing when I can’t find my funny. Watching comedy and stand up comics is the BEST medicine. Rarely do I belly laugh as much as I do with a good comic. I hope you find your good ju ju soon and are feeling better. Cuidate!

      Watching chistes and funny moments always help me turn the corner. I’m so glad I’m no the only one. I’m glad I can pass on the magic of Josh and Paul. They are super awesome on sad days. They did help me find my ju ju. And youuuuuuuuu how’s your ju ju? How have you been? Miss seeing you around.
