The Meaning Behind the Title

I'm working on breaking up my about me page because I've noticed that it may be somewhat overwhelming to somebody that comes across my blog.  I didn't want to completely get rid of everything though because it's the reasons and the meaning that originally made me start this a few years ago.. so I'm going to begin sharing bits and pieces that I've written in the past...

If your wondering how I came up with the name of this blog, that's a very good question.  It actually started with a youtube account.  I was making one and the thing I hate about making any kind of account is the username.  I can never think of anything good!  Or, if I do, I don't remember it!  So I thought long and hard about what I would remember.  I thought of something that had been a big part of my life - the surgeries on my leg.  LLD - leg length discrepancy.  Now I wasn't about to make my username 'leg length descrepency'.  What else could LLD stand for?  LaughLoveDream.  Three very important things I think.

Laugh:  Ever heard someone say "laughter is the best medicine"?  Well it's so true.  Whenever I'm going through something tough, smiling and laughing makes it easier.  For example, after my fifth surgery I obviously had to do physio.  I was actually not allowed home until I was able to go up and down stairs.  This was so scary to me.  I could barely lift my leg, it was in pain, and I had to use crutches.  While practicing going up and down that small set of stairs I was half laughing and half crying.  I probably looked pretty crazy but I made it thanks to the people making me laugh and smile.  If I had just been focusing on the stairs, it would have been a lot harder.

Love:  I think that you should show love to everyone around you.  Not just your family and friends but be friendly to everyone and help others.  When you help others, you not only make them happy but you make yourself feel great too.  Where is the love by the Black Eyed Peas is a good example for this.  This song tells us what this world is turning into without love. It tells you all these terrible things that are going on in order to open your eyes and remind you to selflessly love others.

Dream:  Have a dream and work towards it.  I always try to do that.  Everyone should have a dream or something they really want to do in their life.  For example, I would like to be a doctor, I would love to help people all over the world, and I would like to have a book published one day.

As you can see LaughLoveDream has become more than just a youtube username!
