Let’s get serious here for a second; a lot of us are way too serious. People think that to get anywhere in life you have to have determination. According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary the word “Determination” means: the quality that makes you continue trying to do or achieve something that is difficult. We are told are whole lives that if you want to make it in life you have to be willing to make great sacrifices, work long nights, pretty much are a boring stick in the mud. I say, just like a great role model of mine “why so serious?”
Elbert Hubbard said “Do not take life to seriously. You will never make it out alive.” We spend our whole lives working so hard and doing things that we have been told to do our whole lives that we have lost our sense of humor. We make every situation so serious that nothing is fun anymore. I think that every situation in the world has the potential to be funny; but we’re told a time and a place. “Bryndyn there is a time and a place”, those eight words have been said to me countless times. You know when I think the time and place is? It’s now. There is no better time or a place then here right now while were on earth. Tell a joke; make people laugh, because you’re not going to be around forever to do so.
We spend so much time worrying and taking things so seriously that we turn everyday situations into problems. Things like going to the grocery store can turn into a big hassle that causes you way too much stress. “If I leave now I could probably beat traffic. But then I’d be stuck on the way home and who even knows how packed the store is. I should’ve went this morning then it would be done, but now I have to go right now when it’s most packed”. How about you just chill out! Wait in a line it’s not a big deal. Sing a song in your head while waiting, bring someone with you. I can’t tell you how many good memories I have at the grocery store just from me and my mom goofing around in there. It’s okay to have fun....
