Laughter is good medicine. The writer of Proverbs says so, “A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.” (Proverbs 17:22).
So, how to enjoy the lighter side of life?
First, don’t take yourself too seriously. Life is too short to fret with the small things. Enjoy each day as it comes. Do what you can do today and leave the rest in the hands of the Good Lord.
Second, don’t worry if your job is small and the rewards are few. Just remember the mighty oak was once a little nut like you.
Finally, learn to laugh at yourself. You know that we are pretty funny people. Do you remember the last time you did something that made no sense at all? You are probably saying to yourself, “What was I thinking?” My point exactly!
Take time to laugh, life is so much easier when we do.
