Monday Mottoes – #27

Train TunnelLet’s face it:  some days are great, and some are less than stellar.  Times are tough for many and the question comes, “How can I cope?” 

There’s therapy, and prayer, and exercise, and good friends to help lift your burden.  These really help when you feel that your back is up against the wall, and you don’t know what to do, or where to turn.  The situation may be so serious, and you’re so stressed, that laughter is almost unthinkable at a time like this.

Almost.

Which brings us to today’s motto:  “Public Notice:  Due to recent budget cuts, the rising cost of electricity, 169355c1db21672beb5833a91f41aae9gas and oil, plus the current state of the economy, the light at the end of the tunnel has been turned off.  Have a nice day!”

My husband and I were walking by a shop window when we spied this sign recently.  It struck him as funny, and believe me, he was facing several somber issues.  And maybe these are the times we need to laugh, just to have an enjoyable moment beyond any pressing problems.

If it’s hard to let go of fearful thoughts, laughter might be just what the doctor ordered.  While I don’t believe it’s ever appropriate to giggle at a funeral, for example, when nerves are getting the best of you, it’s time to breathe and let the pressure go.

When there’s nothing else to do, don’t be afraid to laugh and let it go.

Happy Monday, everyone!
