“Laughter is to life what shock absorbers are to automobiles. It won’t take the potholes out of the road, but it sure makes the ride smoother.” — Barbara Johnson —
Are your life shock absorbers in good condition?
To enjoy life is to have a balance between “Enjoying the blessings” and “Adventuring through difficulties”.
If we find ourselves drowning in our problems, maybe it’s because we stopped swimming. I don’t know how to swim but I know for a fact that we need to continue swimming if we want to get to our destination. In the process, why not enjoy the water as well? Before you know it, you’ll be there sooner than later.
I think being able to smile and laugh amidst trials is a great gift. Be mindful that it can also be acquired. It is a matter of shifting our outlook in life knowing that hardships will never cease but we can still enjoy our blessings. In fact, if we really take a closer look at things, we might be surprised how much our blessings outnumber our problems.
So how’s your life shock absorbers?
