I need a good laugh like the belly hurting, eye watering, slobbering laugh (I drool when I laugh really hard…attractive huh??).
The confession: I get all wrapped up sometimes and I let things bug me that don’t really matter. I worry about stuff that I cannot change. I let difficult situations consume my thoughts and my time. As if I had any control.
An even deeper confession: Sometimes I just want to flick people when they have crossed the line of tolerable into irritating. A flick would get the point across and it’s not too violent. But since I am a mature adult, I will reserve my flicking to family and exhibit self -control to the rest of the world.
So… I need a good laugh today. I’m caring too much about little stuff and it’s keeping me from seeing the big picture. I can’t fix other people, I can’t change someone’s behavior, I can’t argue with a pig, I can’t make everyone agree with my theology, and I can’t convince my kids to clean their rooms without a threat.
So what can I do? I can change me. I can relax and enjoy the good life that God has brought me. I can make a nice dinner, read a funny book, play some games with my family. I can take my dogs for a walk, go to Zumba with my neighbor, I can play the piano, and I can be silly. But I must admit, a good laugh would be fun. It’s time.
