Life is heavy. It’s also fleeting.
How quickly we can forget the things that once brought us joy. It seems to be second nature to find something wrong with someone or something around you.
Rather than things appreciated, we lambaste our spouse with a laundry list of to-dos or complaints as they walk in the door.
Charlie Chaplin reminds us that “a day without laughter is a day wasted.”
Ironically, as I write this, I’m scowling at my four drenched dogs traipsing through the kitchen while my son throws things from his high chair. I drop a toy by accident and he starts laughing.
What would life look like if we, as adults, viewed life through a child’s eyes? We’d stress less, laugh more.
What is one thing that makes you laugh today? I tried something new. Playing the harmonica. A good laugh for all.
