To avoid the misconception that our problems are permanent, is to laugh at them. Just throw your head back and laugh in the face of fear and in the midst of struggle. Life is serious enough without you having to be serious about it.
One of the greatest aspects of being alive is play. without exception, people need play. People whose live are lopsided with work have a lack of appreciation for play. Thinking their lives are serous business. they give up play too readily. They think they cannot afford time away from work and chores. Instead, they grind away, insisting that staying alive means work and rest in an ending cycle.
When we're laughing, I think we're learning. It opens our minds up and makes us more creative and innovative. It helps us to view our challenges from a unique perspective. When you laugh and you play, you are having the moment-to moment experience of you at your best. Doing such activities is a gift to yourself. You're nurturing yourself with the same passion with which you nurture or anyone you love. You're giving yourself the change to live your life out loud.
enjoy the long weekend...everyone!
"You don’t stop laughing because you grow old. You grow old because you stop laughing"
Life is good!
