She is Silly and Slightly Obnoxious

We love her regardless, or maybe it's because of it? Either way, it's all good.

I am for all intents and purposes a lover of some deep heavy conversations where I connect and talk with other people. Being spiritual and finding meanings to almost anything is my niche. But boi am I an itty-bitty-fun-size-committee-up-to-no-good-perfectly-put-together-hot-mess who loves to be silly and slightly obnoxious. This is so good for the soul.

I really don't take life too seriously and that's why I think I am a much more happier person in general.

A lot of people get caught up in situations and issues; complain and worry about a bunch of meaningless things that simply don't matter, which then end up clogging our vibes. And while it’s great to handle your business and get serious about growing and bettering yourself, being too serious can truly hinder your ability to enjoy an awesome life, because life; YOUR LIFE is meant to be enjoyed.

Trying to contain and hide my crazy never got me anywhere and in the end it always shows up anyway, so I just wear it on my sleeve these days. I am silly and playful without holding back, feel free to join me.

I find that anyone who takes their selves too seriously always run the risk of looking even more ridiculous, then those who can laugh at themselves. Because those who don't take the time to be silly, usually end up being stressed, jealous, scared and angry. That doesn't look good on anyone.

There's this misconception that in order to be taken seriously or seen as a successful person you have to be serious and almost mean. But as the English business magnate, investor, author, philanthropist and founder of the Virgin Group, Sir Richard Branson said "If you’re not having fun, then it’s probably time to call it quits and try something else."

People are in this vicious cycle where they go to work, act (?) professional, come home, watch Netflix and go to bed; so consumed with paying bills, getting things done, being perfect parents, devoted friends, successful in business that often there is a lost of sight of what truly matters: being happy and joyful. Some might let it out when they play with their kids, nieces or nephews, but other than that, it’s rarely seen; tucked away for whatever reason.

Rene Proyer, a professor at the University of Halle, has a bunch of studies on the subject. He says that people who exhibit high levels of playfulness or silliness are not only outgoing, spontaneous, creative and fun-loving, but also better equipped to cope with stress, lead active lifestyles and are more academically successful.

Being silly can also be a big part of a healthy lifestyle because silliness often causes laughter, which helps lower blood pressure, reduce stress hormone levels, work your abs, improve cardiac health, boost T-cells that immediately begin to help fight off sickness, trigger the release of endorphins and increase your overall sense of well-being. I mean get on this now and priorities silliness.

When was the last time you were silly? Who was there with you? I am here to tell you, it's time to do more of that; start mixing a little foolishness into your daily routines. Stop thinking about what others will say because there is no time like the present to start enjoying some serious silliness and life in general.
