A JoJoism Little Secret

Written By: JoJoisms - Sep• 29•20

This JoJoism was actually a remake of two different JoJoisms I wrote a while back. The first one was, “When a man gets grey hair, they call him distinguished. The feminine form of that word is OLD!” The second was, “If your husband is distinguished, chances are you are OLD!”

However, just this month I decided to put the two of them together as I thought it would make a bigger impact. What do you think?

By the way, my husband is distinguished! Is yours? LOL

Did you guess which JoJoisms were remakes? Here’s the answer!

It’s my birthday and I’ll laugh if I want to!

Written By: JoJoisms - Sep• 08•20

It’s my birthday today! I’m 42 years old. Well, I am the way I count. I vowed that once I got to 50, I’d start counting backwards. I’m still a ways from passing my kids on the way down though.

I may be older, but at least I’m thinner! Menopause hadn’t been very good to me. I had been mostly thin my entire life until the Menopause Fairy cursed me at 37. At 5′ nuthin’, I was about 103 most of my life even after having my daughter until just after I had my son nine years later.

At that point I began creeping up the scale of poundage til I rested at what I thought was fat for me: 115. Looking back now at a picture my husband took of me then, I looked skinny!

However, after my total hysterectomy four years ago, the Menopause Fairy kicked it up a notch and I tipped the scale at 152! After a few years of exercising and cutting out everything but bread and water (only I couldn’t have the bread), I had lost a whopping couple of pounds and I teetered back and forth between 147 and 149.

So, when a Facebook friend asked me if she could help, I didn’t think anything would work. But let me tell you Mary, my health coach, was no match for the Menopause Fairy! My goal was to get down to 115 and at the time I’m writing this I’m 122 and seven pounds from goal.

It’s been six months and I am so happy to have found something that actually worked for me. Unfortunately, I’m not at goal weight, but I am at a MAJOR milestone. I’m actually UNDER 120!! Weigh in today is: 119.4!

Big thanks to Mary! You can click that link or let me know if you want to chat with her about how your weight loss journey could go!

So, who has the last laugh, Menopause Fairy? Who? Me! That’s who! Cuz it’s my birthday and I’ll laugh if I want to!

Why humor is important–especially in 2020

Written By: JoJoisms - Sep• 01•20

You know a year is bad when there are memes about how people are using 2020 as a curse word, as in, “What in the 2020 is going on this year?” And that is precisely why humor is so important especially this year!

If you’re on social media, you know how much Covid19, the riots, the negative politics about the upcoming election and even Murder Hornets have permeated the atmosphere. So many people are practically choking on negativity and some are calling out for a break.

Humor is what has allowed me to remain sane through nine surgeries, several chronic illnesses, financial hardships, homeschooling, and having my kidlings leave the nest. Boo hoo…

Humor is what makes life fun. It’s what allows joy, relieves stress, and turns your frown upside down! They have done studies that show that watching funny movies help people recovering from surgery.

So much of the difficulties in life can actually have humor IN them! I often find a difficult, frustrating, or sad situation has a humorous side to it and I’ve devoted my life to looking for it at every turn. I suggest you do too!

Humor is a MUST for 2020! So, just another reason to come back to JoJoisms each and every week!

Vintage JoJoism Remade

Written By: JoJoisms - Aug• 25•20

One of the first JoJoisms I wrote came about not only because I was feeling my age, but because Fibromyalgia was having a profound affect on me. I think I wrote this one when I was in my early 40s. Here’s what it looked like when I finally made a meme out of it:

I felt it needed an upgrade so here’s what it looks like now:

How much energy do you feel these days? And are you over or under 40?

July’s Inspiring JoJoisms

Written By: JoJoisms - Aug• 11•20

In case you missed them on my Facebook page, I give you the best of my inspirational JoJoisms I shared in July!

So much angry rhetoric has been on social media since Covid19 that I felt it important to share this first JoJoism to remind us all how important it is to check facts and inspire us to listen to others point of view before making up our minds as to what the facts say. I think it was Mark Twain who said that facts are suborn things but statistics are more pliable. It’s important to find out which ones are the “facts” we deem true, but it’s also important to not to be pompous in how we discuss them.

The second one is inspiration for those facing their mountain in 2020. Very often, God has to get us to see our mountain in a different way in order that we may climb it.

The third came to me as I was looking at this picture and it occurred to me that when God leads us, He very often doesn’t allow us to see the entire trail at one time. We just see His light shining our way to where He’s leading.

The last two inspire us to make sure the path we are on is leading us to where God would have us go. These days post Covid are often confusing.

Which one(s) inspired you the most?

Best of Coffee

Written By: JoJoisms - Jul• 28•20

As many of you know, I LOVE my coffee! Gotta have my coffee every morning. Unfortunately, my body has a love/hate relationship with my coffee. One the one hand, it’s delicious! On the other hand…it’s shaky. You see, my Essential Tremors don’t like caffeine! Really ramps up the old jitters. However, for now I tread a delicate line of not enough coffee and too any jitters.

Coffee has resurfaced as a source of JoJoisms and here’s a Best of collection of my latest coffee JoJoisms both static and video. Here’s a look at the best JoJoisms I’ve created on the topic of coffee:

Coffee is the most important meal of the day! What’s in your #coffeemug? #coffee #coffeelover #coffeetime #coffeeaddict #coffeeholic #coffee_time #coffee☕ #coffeecoffeecoffee #coffees #coffeetime☕ #coffeelovers #coffeebreak #coffeequotes
