Guest Post: Live Laugh Grow

21 Jun

Today’s guest post is from Mish of  Eating Journey. An American living in Australia while pursuing her nursing degree, Mish is honest as all get out, and is puts it all out there as she struggles and succeeds, touching on issues such as body image, exercise, food issue and learning to love the most important person in her life – herself. She’s also the founder of the Exposed movement, now 56 strong and counting. She’s funny, witty, and sexy, and the best part is? She does it all being her genuine self.


To live it to seize the day

And make sure that you are on the right way

To be open to new thoughts

And to be able to workout on the spot

It’s not about comparing to others

Or worrying about your brothers

It’s about loving yourself at the core

And knowing that you have so much more

Finding balancing in living

So that you are able to keep on giving

Giving to yourself everyday

So that you are never tempted to walk away

It would be a shame to waste your laugh

Cause life isn’t a rough draft.

The way that laughter fills a room

Is much like air in a balloon

So don’t starve your life of laughter everyday

What a same it would be to stifle your rays

We are only given a certain amount of time on this earth

Each day is almost like a new birth

So go on and bring about the laugh you possess

Cause I would hate to know that you do not use it and digress

I have been told that my laugh is loud

Who cares I am American and proud

What living and laughter enable you to do is to continue growing like kids with shoes.

Using what life has given you in riddles and clues

Signs and thoughts that keep you going

So that you never stop growing

It’s about watering your seed so it has fuel

And never starving it of it’s tools

You see you are but a seed in the soil

Who has to realise that life isn’t always about toil

To be perfect is rob the roots of the plant

And will make your petals quite scant

So lay down your foundation with pride

And let your petals grow in stride

For Living, Laughing and Growing is a constant change of pace

So that you can keep on running the race
