Laugh, Every Day

“From there to here, and here to there, funny things are everywhere.” – Dr. Seuss

“Common sense and a sense of humor are the same thing, moving at different speeds. A sense of humor is just common sense, dancing.” – Clive James

Find humor and knit laughter into each day to lighten up. A simple shape of snow on a tree, a walk in nature, soaking in the sun as winter turns to spring. Pay attention to little things, to what’s right in front of you in this moment. Notice, dance, dare to delight.

If you can find humor daily, even in winter, joy finds you, transforming ordinary days into extraordinary ones filled with light.

“A day without laughter is a day wasted.” – Charlie Chaplin

Come to Your Senses

“He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead; his eyes are closed.”
– Albert Einstein

“Common sense and a sense of humor are the same thing, moving at different speeds.  A sense of humor is just common sense, dancing.”  -  William James

“Common sense and a sense of humor are the same thing, moving at different speeds. A sense of humor is just common sense, dancing.” – William James

As we juggle our mulitple and competing demands each day, our senses get dulled.

Smell the fragrance of the flowers (lilacs are my favorite), of fresh cut grass, of a wood burning fire. Hear the symphony of the birds at dawn, the hearty laughter of children playing, the rhythm of rain tapping the roof. Taste the sweetness of a fresh picked tomotoes, the fun of bubble gum or pop rocks. Re-engage and reignite your senses – see, hear, touch, smell and taste it all.

And while you’re at it, discover a few more senses like wonder, delight and the most important one – a sense of humor – a gift to yourself and others all in one.

“Humor is the great thing, the saving thing.  The minute it crops up, all our irritation and resentments slip away, and a sunny spirit takes their place.” –  Mark Twain
