I like this quote by Oscar Wilde: "Life is too important to be taken seriously."
It's a reminder to me (and I hope, to you) to leave room for playfulness, wonder, delight and a good dose of humor. Of course, that doesn't mean everything in life is fun or funny. We know better than that. But no matter how bad things get for us, it's good to remember that's not all there is. There's more.
And the "more" becomes noticeable and obvious when we approach life looking for the gifts and blessings. Look for the humor in everyday events. Look for the bright side and the light side.
Above all, don't take yourself so seriously!
