Living In Gratitude: Let Your Hair Down

Fun is good. ~Dr. Seuss

Now those are words to live by. Fun is good. We need to find time to let our hair down and enjoy life.

Find time today to sing, dance, laugh, skip, be silly. Have some fun. Life is too short for being serious all the time.

All too often, we get caught up in the serious things life throws at us.

  • Can we pay our bills this month?
  • An argument we had with a loved one.
  • An issue in our job or problem with our health.
  • Feeling overcome with everything we have to do each day.

Each of those things is important and impacts our life but letting seriousness take a backseat and kicking up our heels can make those and other challenges less weighty.

We’ve all heard the old adage that laughter is the best medicine. Though there is no scientific proof to back that up, a positive, appreciative, fun attitude can lift your spirits, reduce stress and make you more equipped and open to solutions.

Fun is good

The next time you are feeling overwhelmed with the seriousness of it all, dance and sing to your favorite song, watch a video or two of your favorite comedian or sitcom, get goofy with your kids.

Sing, dance, skip, be silly. Have some fun.

You just may find silliness is a wonderful antidote to seriousness.

May your day be filled with gratitude and good things.
