I’ve got what Tim McGraw calls “emotional traffic”.
A whole lot of life has been through this thirty-six year old Guatemalan body and the only way I’ve gotten through it is with humor. Setbacks happen often in everyone’s life, but they take place on a daily basis when you’re a mother of two, the youngest daughter in a family of four, the bad-ass wife, the traveling dreamer, and the Chapstick-type of woman instead of the lipstick heel-wearing chick.
“I always wanted to be somebody, but now I realize I should have been more specific.”
The Guat Life is a recipe for dysfunction and disaster. But’s it’s my life and I embrace it! It’s a great source of material for my writing and laughter for those around me. I don’t know what the hell I’m doing here or how I’m doing it, but here I am, and this is a small chapter in my life story and how humor helps me through it. Whether it’s the little things like the crazy driver that cuts me off on the 405 freeway or big things like my family who’s… well …family. I’m clinging to life without meds, living on prayer, and using humor as my compass. Bring it on!
“Laughter and tears are both responses to frustration and exhaustion. I myself prefer to laugh, since there is less cleaning up to do afterward.”
