How am I feeling this week:
Don't take life too seriously, be silly, be funny, be fun. Embrace your inner child. We are never to old to play, to hug stuffed vegetables. They say the difference between the men and the boys, is the price of the toys, the important point being that we are never too old to have toys. My life is cluttered at times with things that entertain me, or bring me joy. The joy of the junk, outweighs the burden of keeping order. Step into the sunshine, let the breeze blow through your hair, take a slow walk in a warm rain, gaze at the night, run off following the bird, look for the first wildflower of spring, the first golden leaf of autumn. Take photos, lots of photos, ones that only make sense to you, photos of the beauty and oddities surrounding you. Taste the tastes, smell the smells, feel the smoothness, savor the warmth. Worry not what others think, in the end there is only one person you can make happy, and that is you. When all else fails, be silly.
Here here! One of my favorite quotes is from 60 Minutes Andy Rooney-ReplyDelete
"“Everyone wants to live on top of the mountain, but all the happiness and growth occurs while you’re climbing it.”
I miss Andy!Delete
I love a bit of silliness, especially in older people.ReplyDelete
I asked my boss to defined aging once, his answer was you have been born and you are not dead yet, WE are older.Delete
Great post. I live by this “creed” as much and as often as possible. I refuse to grow up. And the person who dies with the most toys wins.ReplyDelete
Growing up is a scam,Delete
great pix of sweet bear! did you buy the veggies?ReplyDelete
No, the sheep would eat them.Delete
I agree! Being silly makes us feel young!ReplyDelete
We are only as old as we think we areDelete
I love being silly and doing the unexpected. As IU aways tell Carlos, "Don't think I won't do it!"ReplyDelete
Cuz I will.
Such excellent advice for today! I wonder what silliness I can get into today.ReplyDelete
I just finished a marathon day of work, I am either sick or on vacation tomorrow.Delete
Being silly is one of my favorite coping devices. It also complements my RBF.ReplyDelete
Ain't nothing wicked about that particular hamster! He's totally adorable (as if you didn't know).
