Life is a treasured asset…don't let it pass by without pausing to think about each moment~~~selah vita




when i saw this picture it reminded me of a little incident that happened quite some time ago…it was what i call a “platinum moment”…it was a perfect opportunity to laugh at myself, but at the time, i didn’t realize it..
it all started over a blister on my toe, and because of it, every time i put my shoe on, i would feel a lot of discomfort and would end up taking my shoe off for a while to get some relief…after a few times of that i realized it might be a good idea to “put a band-aid on it” for a little protection from the uncomfortable rubbing…with that thought i went ahead, got my little bandage, in a hurry put it on and scooted off…within minutes the pain went searing through my toe and i didn’t understand why…i couldn’t imagine what was wrong, but didn’t have time to check it out, so i limped around finishing up what i had to do. when i returned home i removed my shoe and gave a great big sigh of relief! i took a look at foot and noticed the band aid looked in place but there was once small problem at closer inspection…i put the band aid on the wrong toe!!!…omg, i could not believe i did that!! yeah, what a nitwit huh? go ahead, you can laugh too and shake your head in disbelief, i did…and till this day it boggles my mind that i could do such a ridiculous thing! but one thing’s for sure, i’ll admit, it certainly gave me a good laugh 😛
through my life i’ve had many opportunities to have what i call “platinum moments”(just ask my friends). and let’s just say i’ve learned through the years, rather than become frustrated over some of my silly moments, i can get a good laugh over them and bring some laughter into other lives as well!
once a friend told me not to call myself “platinum”…but they don’t understand it’s a term of endearment given me by my two brothers and now my husband. it’s not offensive in any way at all and i’ve decided to make it work for me instead of against me. i’ve realized i am uniquely made and maybe running through my dark hair are many platinum ones that can’t be seen with the naked eye, but that doesn’t stop me.
i just giggle when a “platinum” moment arises and learned it’s good to laugh at myself, and i enjoy laughing with my friends and family each time…so go ahead, take a look at yourself and have a hearty laugh…laughter does the body, mind and spirit good! try it, you may just like it! 😉

I love all forms of encouragement, especially if it involves humor...the greatest thing to me is watching people be uplifted ...also extending grace to those who feel down or condemned. I found it is a powerful tool... Everyone's life is valuable and I would love to bring a little bit of light and joy into their lives..selah~~~

  1. Love it!!! And yes I’m laughing!!! :)))


  2. After much struggling to make myself perfect or as close as I could get for reasons of my past, I read this and realize that it is OK to make mistakes and laugh at ourselves because we are not perfect and were not meant to be but only through the grace of God are we viewed as perfect.


    • you’re so right!! and it’s our imperfections that make us approachable! when others see we can laugh at ourselves it helps them to relax…
      as we know there is only ONE who’s perfect…and Lord knows it ain’t me!!! 😉
