I think life would be more pleasant if everyone looked at the world through a child's eyes. I see my son laugh uncontrollably because he thinks he's "eating my yawn or my eyes". I can play that game with him for hours and he will crack up every time. He geeks out when daddy makes funny faces or we slurp our spaghetti together. When does life in general stop being amusing? Why does it take more and more stimulation to get that pee your pants laughter that comes so naturally for kids?
I will choose to look at the lighter side of life when I can. I will laugh at myself when I run into a door. I will take joy in the little things. I will appreciate people for the small things they do to make my day better (even if they don't know it). If I can do this during the mundane days, I can hold strong during the terrible ones.
Goal #11 of my 101 in 1001: Identify 100 things that make me happy.
