We could all use a good laugh, even if it’s at our own expense.

How often do we take ourselves too seriously? How often do we give into fear and embarrassment over something silly? I think learning to not make a big deal out of small mishaps and slightly embarrassing moments is an important skill to have. It’s a skill I had to intentionally teach myself, but once I did, I started to open up a little more in other ways as well. Here’s a list of 17 reasons to embrace your imperfections and laugh at yourself because we all make mistakes:

  1. You spectacularly tripped over your own feet
  2. You mistakenly said “love you” or “see you soon” to a stranger over the phone
  3. You just realized how ridiculous that outfit looks
  4. You had to make three trips between the car and house because you forgot things
  5. You put way more planning into this party than what was needed
  6. You showed up to a formal work party in jeans and a t-shirt
  7. You forgot your account password again
  8. You can’t remember where you parked your car
  9. You left your fly down or your shoe untied
  10. You dyed your hair and its new color doesn’t look good on you
  11. You thought that event was today, but it’s actually tomorrow
  12. You dropped your fork on the floor
  13. You started laundry, but forgot to finish it
  14. You accidentally fed the dog/cat twice
  15. You spent 10 minutes looking for your phone when it was in your pocket
  16. You forgot what day it was
  17. You accidentally started singing that song out loud in the grocery store
