“Silly is you in a natural state, and serious is something you have to do until you can get silly again.” ~Mike Myers
This quote is how I feel about life. I am silly. I love being silly and I find being silly one of the most wonderful things about life. People who are too serious, who cannot laugh or rather refuse to laugh or even smile boggle my mind.
I get that we each have different crosses to bear and that life circumstances can drag a person down but that is precisely when we NEED to lighten up and laugh. Easier said than done, I get that.
But it is as someone once said, “Laughter is the best medicine.” Truly it is.
And if you can’t manage a chortle, a giggle, a snicker, a snort or an all-out-gut-busting-guffaw, then at the very least try smiling.
It works wonders not only for you but also for the people around you. Try it. You might be surprised – pleasantly so.
This is me smiling at you. 🙂 Have a great day!
-One of my favorite renditions of this beautiful song.
