Insert humor here.

Life often doesn’t go as we planned. It is creative in sending us experiences. While it may not seem so in the moment, we may end up getting what we hoped for, eventually, if in inventive fashion.

Especially in the middle of a seeming detour, it may be hard not to be frustrated. Why can’t things just go the way we want them to?

Getting angry won’t make the present any more palatable. It will simply poison what good there is in the moment.

Finding a humorous take on the situation can help lift our spirits. A fine sense of the ludicrous is a good ally in trying times.

Today’s message reminds me to hone up my sense of humor. When I can find amusement when things don’t go exactly my way, I’ll have more fun with what is.

Please reflect and share. Do you use humor to lighten heavy situations?
