Monday Mindfulness


In the darkest times, laughter can be the best, most important thing. If you have a choice, always choose laughter.

I was sitting at home Saturday morning, about to feel all sad because I didn’t have anything to do for hours besides watch the rain fall, when I made a smart decision. I decided to watch the movie Fist Fight. I’ve been meaning to watch this movie since I first heard about it, but I screwed up and forgot about it.

But Saturday, Saturday was made awesome by Ice Cube and Charlie Day. That movie was hilarious and boy did I laugh. I laughed so hard I forgot about everything. I laughed so hard I felt warm and fuzzy inside. I laughed so hard I forgot what I was missing and remembered everything I had. Then I went out and conquered the day.

For the same reason, I watch The Golden Girls every opportunity I get. Nothing heals faster and stronger than laughter. So when things feel a bit overwhelming, or a bit too sad, think of that thing that makes you laugh. Laugh at TV, laugh at life, laugh at yourself. It will be like purifying yourself in the waters of Lake Minnetonka.

Yes, I laughed while writing this post. Have a great week!
