Don’t take yourself too seriously

I think, on the whole, Australians (Aussies) are pretty laid back and good at not taking themselves too seriously – and 1. That’s a great trait to have, and 2. It’s important to be able to laugh at yourself occasionally. Take this example that I stumbled across today from the Australian professional cycling team Orica-Greenedge:

Isn’t it great??? I must have watched it 5 or 10 times and just bopped along – I think it really embodies that laid back, not-too-serious attitude that Aussies are known for. 🙂

In the same spirit, here is a photo of Mum & I from a few years back when we attended a French themed party of a family friend. I think Mum looked great as Marcel Marceau and me…well… no jokes about popping the cork please 😛
