Lets think about this one. Really, there are very few things in life that we need to take seriously. Or should I say that I need to take seriously.
Here’s a few examples for myself that if I ever find myself in this situation I will allow myself to take it seriously:
- I’m in a biker gang and I’ve gotten myself in a spot of bother and they are threatening to cut off my fingers. Yep serious.
- I wake up and discover there is no food in the house at all, like nothing and I’m starving for my breaky. Pretty serious.
- . . . . .
Ok being a little more on the serious side a terminal illness can be a little scary, or a fire/robbery. But this is the big stuff. I’ll allow myself to take the big stuff seriously.
Otherwise there’s nothing. If I get stranded on a desert island what’s stressing about it going to do. I’ll tell you what it’ll do, it’ll make me feel depressed which will make me want to eat – Chocolate specifically and I won’t have any of that so all of a sudden I’m stuck on a beautiful sandy, blue skies island with this absolute babe of a man (obviously it’s my bf – close one ) and I am having a terrible time. All because I decided I should be a little serious.
I come across these situations all the time. It could take an hour or a few days to realize that I need to shut it down. Shut my mind down, let it go and move on.
Have you ever seen a really serious person laugh? It’s because they don’t.
I decided that my new years resolution was to play and laugh more. And you know what? It feels really good.
So enough of the million lines going across my forehead and a slight twitch in my left eye.
I’ll take a powerful deep breath and let my heart smile.
My advice to you. If you haven’t had a real belly aching, hearty laugh in the last week where you nearly wet your pants, well then what’s the point in life?
