You know, sometimes life just gets too serious, too busy, and too complicated. We don’t mean for it to happen, but we wake up one morning to discover the fun has slipped away.
Several years ago a health study determined there are 3 main reasons people can’t cope in life:
- They live in the past.
- They have a low self-esteem.
- They can’t laugh at themselves.
In fact, the study indicated that we need approximately 12 laughs a day to stay healthy!
I heard a story about a guy who sent flowers to his friend who was opening a new restaurant. When he arrived at the grand opening, he looked for his flowers. Well, when he found them, he saw that he had sent a white wreath that said, “May you rest in peace.” He panicked, of course, and called the florist who said, “Bob, I’m not worried about you because as we speak, there’s a guy being buried who got a dozen roses that said, ‘Good luck in your new location!’”
Yes, life throws us curve balls when we least expect it. And sometimes, just to stay sane, we need to sit back and laugh!
