“The most wasted of all days is one without laughter.”
E. E. Cummings
Never go a day without laughing. Laughing is truly the best medicine for many, many little aches from the day. If you can, laugh it off, shrug it off, have some chocolate. De-stress yourself by watching something funny on YouTube or reading a book you find funny.
Fake it til you make it. If you can’t find a way to laugh -impossible! -force yourself to laugh. You will sound so ridiculous to yourself that you will really laugh. Then you will laugh at yourself for laughing for real, and the circle perpetuates itself until you feel better or someone catches you being crazy.
Worst comes to worst, just talk to yourself in the mirror. This really works in making yourself feel like the goofiest person on the planet. Seriously, there is no one else out there who is as nuts as you (probably) because you are talking to your reflection as if they are a real person. Unless…is that just me? Please say it isn’t.
I digress. JUST LAUGH. Loosen up and let yourself be open to a bit of silliness and giggles. Your heart will feel lighter, and your day brighter.
“Time is a wonderful teacher; unfortunately, it kills all its pupils.”
How wonderful! But I’m really not kidding. I saw this and for a few seconds I couldn’t think of anything except that I wanted to share this with friends (not that any friends follow me on WordPress, but hellooooo internet people). The bitter truth in this quotation isn’t hidden by the humor. Instead, that absurd bluntness gives it the real slice of life-pie that it is. Such a cool sentiment, even if it is a bit morbid.
“Now and then it’s good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy.”
Just be happy! Come on people, yes even you! try it!! Instead of hounding your goals, sometimes it’s better to let things happen. Happiness can be something you create, but you can’t control its course. Take a step back, relax, and you’ll probably find that you are happier than expected, like Apollinaire seems to think.
“Let’s get loose
Let’s drown in the delicious
I came across this today, and I think that it’s totally great. I don’t always enjoy explaining how I interpret things to other people, because it can be a little pedantic. So interpret away! It’s amazing how some people can put together words so simply yet have it mean something so deeply.
