I will laugh at the world. No living creature can laugh except man. Trees may bleed when they are wounded, and beasts in the field will cry in pain and hunger, yet only I have the gift of laughter and it is mine to use whenever I choose. Henceforth I will cultivate the habit of laughter.
—Og Mandino The Greatest Salesman in the World
This particular scroll is amazing. It honestly couldn’t have come at a better time for me. My outlook and attitude have improved dramatically in this second week of reading this scroll.
I am learning to laugh at what would normally bother me. Laugh and shrug off things that would under normal circumstances bring me to tears. “This too shall Pass” is a simple yet poignant statement. Seems trivial when someone else says it to you. But when you read it, over and over again in the context of this scroll it begins to sink in and give you perspective on things, on happenings, on events in your life as they occur. I’ve begun to realize, and maybe I knew this before, well, honestly, I did know this before, but it’s become apparent again to me as I read and reread it daily that it’s true.
What do some of the things that happen on a daily basis, to and around you, really have to bear on the outcome of your life? If it’s trivial let it go. If it hurts, let it go. If it really stings and brings you to your knees, pray or meditate while your down there and get up and Let it go! Laugh it off and realize…when you look back on today…if you can even remember it a month from now…you will realize that you might have learned something or that whatever it was is insignificant now.
Laughter…nature’s cure. God’s medicine that needs no prescription. No such thing as too much of it. It’s free for goodness sake. Amazing! and… Works for everyone! I recommend it for sure.
Oh and while your at it, laughing that is…GET OUTSIDE and enjoy the wonderful weather that we are having…ok? Maybe not so where you are? Sure it is! It’s better than cold dreary winter. Find the good. Celebrate the good. Laugh at what you cannot change and remember it will pass, because I promise you…it does pass!
Thanks for visiting….journeying on weekly…check back.
