The Lighter Side of Life

“Take time every day to do something silly.”

~ Philips Walker

Maybe it’s because I’m now in the second half of my life. Perhaps it’s because I spent so many years being “good”, doing the “right” thing, and trying to achieve perfection at everything I did. Or it might be because I’ve finally learned a thing or two about life.

Whatever the reason, I’ve decided not to take life so seriously anymore. I’m holding it lightly, like a balloon or a feather, in the palm of my hands. Not clenching my fist around it, but open-handed so that it’s free to dance and soar in the breeze.

There are lots of serious events in the world. Lots of reason to be discouraged and feel challenged. I’m fully aware of that. I’m also aware of the delight, the reasons to smile and chuckle, and the opportunities for a good belly laugh. And that’s where I want to focus my time and energy in the coming years.

What makes you laugh out loud? What silly things have you done lately? I’ll share if you will!
