Laugh Lots and Rejoice Religiously!
“Don’t take yourself too seriously. It just makes life all the harder. It’ll all come out in the wash anyway, because God’s glory eventually will eclipse everything that goes wrong on this earth. Lighten up and learn to laugh at yourself. None of us is infallible. We make mistakes in life, and more often than not, they’re funny. Sometimes, being your own source of comedy is the most fun of all.” -Luci Swindoll

“Some of my friends think of God as a head honcho who sites on a big throne and order people to “be good.” I used to think of God that way too. But I have learned that God wants just to have fun! He created a beautiful world for us, and he created fun. It’s all part of the great life he wants us to have. When I find my joy in God, my friend will see it. And maybe they’ll want that joy too!” -Carissa Smith
The world becomes serious quickly. We have no control over that, but what we do have control over is how we respond. Our attitude can define everything about us, how we see the world, how we view other people, how we pursue our goals, how we treat ourselves and others. Everything. Happiness is a choice. It’s up to you if you want to enjoy life. Like little kids, we can be happy, carefree, maybe a little careless, but we can almost certainly enjoy life more than we do now.
Rejoice in the world and all of it’s sorrows and joys. Terrible things can happen. Awesome things can happen. Sometimes little siblings will start writing fiction. That’s cool. So don’t be so hard on everyone and everything around you. Because sometimes, we are just taking things seriously that God put there for fun.
Be blessed today.
