Have You Noticed
“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
During your daily routine, life will confront you with various circumstances. Life will place you in conditions that may not be comfortable or something you are happy to be in. It could be news of a medical or financial condition; either of which will have a major impact on your life. There might be small things that seem to simply bother us. A co-worker that is always too loud, a flat tire or a leaking faucet.
The big and small things in life will always occur.
How we deal with each of these situations will determine our happiness. Humor can help ease the condition. Humor can help ease the stress that comes with the pain. Try it sometime, try laughing about it and moving on. Diffuse your frustration and do not allow the situation to sidetrack your day.
And the next time you are driving down the road and get frustrated with traffic, remember what George Carlin said, “Have you ever noticed that anybody driving slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster than you is a maniac?” We all have to put ourselves into perspective and get on with more important things in life.
Stay inspired my friends!
