And what do most of us do? We fight, we argue, we bitch, we complain, we worry, we gripe… the list goes on and on. And the saddest thing is that we do this ever so often with our loved ones, or our friends. It would be such a blessing if all of us would just live life to the fullest by not indulging in these negative and destructive acts.
I personally whisper a short thank you prayer to God before I go to bed each night, and I do the same when I get up in the morning (and find that the sun is shining, I still have my senses and can wiggle my fingers and toes, the roof is still over my head, etc. etc.)
Joann Javons has written a nice little e-book here entitled 20 Little Ways to Stop and Smell the Roses. It won’t take you long to read through it, and it’s free to download and save in your computer if you wish. I especially like #14 “Laugh Yourself Silly.” Yes, a lot of us, myself included, tend to take life too seriously at times. Humor is just the perfect antidote.
