While we humans are making plans, there is uproarious laughter in the heavens at the bumbling, haphazard manner in which we live our lives.
I realize the words “fair” and “life” in the same sentence is a paradox, but then like most things, it’s a matter of perspective, Right?!
Life offers us some serious moments that are pretty f***ng hilarious if you think about it.
A quick detour…
Here’s a little story with a man named TED…
Po’ ole sap wanted to marry his lady faire…
There’s an 80’s movie with Ted Danson and Isabella Rossellini.
Here’s the plug…
There are complications and challenges to overcome to be together.
Whoops! They fall in love and they’re cousins. Distant cousins like very distant, but cousins nonetheless.
Of course, Ted has a conversation with his dad who gives him some sage advice….
He said — —
“Life will hand you chickinsh*t or chickin salad, which would you PREFER?
Imma say it…always prefer the chickin salad! Go get It!
We always, always, always have a choice.
Like the story above, I choose the chikin salad, see the possible, and not let the challenges keep me from joy and laughter.
So, God and I write comedy.
We create life skits, some funny, some not so funny in the moment (meaning … an instance where I go OFF with stream of obscene words and actions!!).
The usual result from this outburst is some Bullsh*t on my part. Just plain willfulness! Nevermind.
On the other hand, let’s look a little closer, shall we at the nutjob inside
Ohhhhh, I’m laughingly scared sometimes, evvvven!!!
There’s a maniacWHOA-man that lives inside of my head. A frightening declaration!
Sh*t be funny because of how dark, twisted, and faulty it is from time to time.
Ummm, I think you know what I mean… a delicate thing until provoked, that turns into a lunatic unleashed. A Frankensteinian creation on the rampage.
Listen, my prerogative now is to truly see life’s as the good gig it is and choose to make it so as much as possible.
It’s been through this comedy fraught with navigation and attitude errors, I’ve learned many, many, many practical lessons and been blessed (a time or two, three, four…ad Infinitum).
Awareness on my part is essential to create the joy daily; and thus, leads to a happier disposition and easier adulting.
So, laugh…Got the same 24? I submit for your approval…. Laugh loud & strong
Embrace the comedy, it’s fodder for some REALLY great stories.
Derive joy in the being, and consequently, the doing then comes naturally.
Let’s adult this Sh*t with childlike wonder and laughter, life will equal …. joy.
In doing so, a shift happens in our perspective and challenges big or small become easier to manage.
Make those sounds and face movements that reflect lively amusement instead of contempt.
Don’t titter because your bitter and don’t convulse because you’re repulsed.
Laugh heartily and look for the humor in life, the daily and the mundane.
Believe me, when you laugh…
God, the Universe, and the Angels are laughing TOO…with you!
