Always Be Prepared To Be The Butt Of Your Own Joke
“Through humor, you can soften some of the worst blows that life delivers. And once you find laughter, no matter how painful your situation might be, you can survive it.” – Bill Cosby
So, for the #macromonday theme the end , I thought I would draw humor from it since I sometimes like to think like the perpetual child – to be light-hearted and creative.
I received the cutest little glass sheep, part of an inside joke at work, for my birthday last month, and I move them around my office every couple of days like an Elf on The Shelf.
Over the last few weeks, clearing up the last few projects from my term in school and during the break, I have taken the time to regroup some – mentally and spiritually – and lay the foundation for more reconstructions, conceptual work, and overall well-being, but the final piece to the puzzle fell into place while getting deeper into my yoga flows.
The yogi leader mentioned that we should try to smile and go to a place of that which a child finds freedom and joy. Well, for me, that joy comes in being goofy, sometimes off-color, and fully outrageous. In remembrance of the quote above, from someone my grandfather loved to listen to in the car, I am embracing the laughter in life.
When life throws challenges at you – laugh at how you can’t believe this is all that has come your way; find humor where you can. When people toss pain and drama at your feet – laugh it off; you don’t have to be bogged down by others’ “butt-sore” behaviors. When you feel down – remember to laugh off at why you are really feeling down.
Most of the time, the reason we get down is because we feel like we don’t have control over something we believed we had control over. The truth of the matter is that we do not ever have control over anything except ourselves – we only ever have the illusion of control. So find humor in being thick-skulled and move on.
If you can’t do that – find humor and bring upon laughter in your life, then you truly are the “butt” end of your own life’s joke.
So, here, I give you the butt end of my sheep for the end theme of Macro Monday withand .
Enjoy and Namaste! ♥
