Golda Meir – Words Crush Wednesday Favorite Quote Challenge

momma'spics 038“Those who don’t know how to weep with their whole heart, don’t know how to laugh either.”

Golda Meir

I am the kind of person who feels things deeply and reacts emotionally. I definitely weep with my whole heart. I used to be bothered by my uncontrolled outpouring of tears and sadness and grief while seeing other people not being visibly moved. I have gotten past that. I realize it’s natural for me to show honest emotion, and it is also healthy. Sometimes there is nothing as therapeutic as a good cry.

On the other hand, I am also able to laugh and enjoy life and have a good time. I love the times when I laugh so hard that I can barely catch my breath or when I end up holding my abdomen because it hurts. To be able to really laugh at life and ourselves is a wonderful thing.

To me Golda Meir said it very well.

Golda Meir (1898 – 1978) was the  fourth prime minister of Israel.

On Wednesdays I participate in Words Crush Wednesday Favorite Quote Challenge hosted by Rebirth of Lisa. Check out the blog and join the fun.

      Thank you. I certainly identify with criers and laughers, especially when combined in one person.

    Sometimes it’s good to have a big cry and purge all the sadness and then it’s also good to laugh hysterically until your tummy hurts and tears are running down your face.
