“Against the assault of laughter, nothing can stand.” ~ Mark Twain
It would do our souls some good to remember the simplicity of childhood. How easily we laughed and how our job was to play. And sure, adulting brings with it certain tasks and responsibilities that don’t seem like playful fun. But why not find joy and ways to play like it is our job again.
Smile for no reason. Keep a collection of funny jokes or books handy and read them often. Skip down the street. Dance while you are cooking dinner. Be joyful every day. Even in the darkest times, it is always possible to smile, it just may take some intention and a little more effort than usual.
Mindful joy keeps us young. It keeps us resilient. It makes life more enjoyable and more meaningful.
And now something to make you smile…
Teacher: Winnie, name one important thing we have today that we didn’t have 10 years ago.
Teacher: Maria, go to the map and find North America
Maria: Here it is!
Teacher: Very good. Now class who discovered America?
Teacher: Glen, why do you always get so dirty?
Glen: Well, I’m a lot closer to the ground than you.
