Where’s the Silly?


(Yesterday’s post was a bit of a downer so I wanted to lighten things up a bit.Have a great Sunday! )

Some people might adopt the notion that
while you are on your journey to adulthood
you must trade your silliness for a book
on proper behavior.
I challenge why, when we grow up,
we tend to put away our laughter,
our childish warp, our silly….
the great sense of hilariousness
of our youth.
This is a bit like being introduced
to a room full of empty chairs.
Laughter and silliness blasts anxiety,
making you feel better; sleep better,
and love your neighbor a little more.
Ultimately, I don’t think we need to
read a book on being a proper adult
or trade in our enormously young
and alive apparatus for a staunch,
stiff, and boring persona.
Where Is your silly?
It’s in all of us – If suppressed in the past
it can be unleashed  in us once again
We should have the same two wishes
at 25, 45 and 65.
1) Have Fun and 2) Have Fun.
Obviously, we can not always walk a
fun course – That thing called life
steps right on our face from time to time.
But if you can be an “adult” and still be
called “silly”, well I think you should
consider that a huge compliment.
You know where the silly is
because it’s alive and well inside of you.
