Where’s the fun in being serious ALL the time? No, this is not a rhetorical question, I can tell you the answer, flat out. IT’S NOT FUN TO BE SERIOUS ALL THE TIME! It’s important that we learn to go with the flow more often. To be serious means you are consistently tense which causes more stress, not only on the body but on the mind as well.
When we learn to laugh at our mistakes we learn to live a little. How do we expect to continuously get angry or upset every time something doesn’t go our way? We all need to laugh it out and keep it moving. Life is like a roller-coaster, full of mistakes, a trial-and-error process. Can you imagine how stressed out that makes life if we can’t learn to laugh at ourselves? During our short journeys here on Earth we should be more focused on the things that make us happy and not on the things that make us stressed.
In order to do that, we need to not be so tense about every difficult situation that crosses our paths. We need to be ready for the hits, ready to roll with the punches, because our journey will not be one straight line. I’m sure we all know this by now, so let’s make it our mission to not get so bothered by difficult encounters. Embrace them and laugh at yourself, make sure that your happiness is always top priority, because what is this life without happiness? What is the purpose of going through the daily motions of life if we can’t learn to laugh and smile, even during the rough times. So remember to laugh at yourself every once in while to take the daily stress of life off of your shoulders and just be happy!
