Welcome to the video series that’s all about climbing the ladder of vibration and manifesting the life of your dreams. I am Stephanie Mulac, and today, we’re going to be talking about putting life into perspective. Now, I wanna share a little story with you about something that happened years ago at Thanksgiving time, and to kind of get you to understand where we come from. My daughters and I have the tendency of doing everything last minute for the holidays. And in many instances, it’s not because we’re procrastinating, it’s just that we find that being in those environments gets us in the mood, gets us really excited because it’s at the peak of the eve of Thanksgiving or Christmas Eve shopping, and things like that. So this particular Thanksgiving, we were doing that, we were grocery shopping. And unfortunately, what we find too often when we skip happily off to the stores is that everyone else is trudging through the stores.
They are cranky, they are tired, overworked, over stressed, and they’re not having fun with it. They’re not out there making memories. They’re not enjoying picking out the ingredients for the Thanksgiving dinner that you’re going to be appreciative and give thanks for in 24 hours. They are as far from being thankful about anything as can possibly be. Now, this particular shopping trip, I wanted to kind of mix it up a little and the way that we make our stuffing each year for Thanksgiving is from full loaves of white bread that we lay out to dry. So when we go to the bread aisle, we’re getting about six, probably about six packages of these big full loaves of bread. So my daughter hands me the first two packages of bread and it’s like, I’ll just start putting it into the cart. I kinda giggled to myself and there’s people in this aisle, and again, the grumpy people that are just not having fun with it, and I turn around and I look at my daughters, and I said, “Food Fight!” And I start hitting them with these packages of bread. Now, I wasn’t interfering with anyone else, I wasn’t damaging a product that I wasn’t going to ultimately buy, and ultimately, I’m crumbling this bread up so it does not matter how mangled it gets.
But we had a fun moment, and what we were doing, and all of a sudden, it was like the girls looked at me, and they’re like, well if mommy did it, maybe it’s okay. And they grabbed a bread and they bopped me with it and I bopped them back. And we laughed and we giggled, and I even told this story to someone years later, and they’re like, I’m all for having fun, and I’m all fun for, but that’s food and that’s not right. And I said, there’s nothing wrong with it.
That is a memory that my daughters will have when they are my age and they will look at their children and they will say, let me tell you about that Thanksgiving time when my crazy mom, your grandmother, decided to have a food fight in aisle five. And isn’t that at the end of the day what it’s all about? It’s having fun with it and enjoying life? I’m not saying that you go to the grocery store and you have a food fight every day of the week, but a little something like that that just created a memory that they will never forget and I challenge you to have fun with life. To look at doing the little things that can create that memory for yourself, your loved ones, people around you that you care about. Have some fun with it, and put it into perspective that it’s not all seriousness. It’s not all stress of whatever the circumstances might be. That it’s okay to have fun with things even if everything’s not going as planned, or is not as smooth as you may start out wanting it to be. Just look for ways to embrace what’s around you and have fun with it.
