Life's Lessons #2 BE Silly
Silliness is an essential Life Skill. It is right up there with learning to say YES and NO. It makes Life bearable and sweet, especially when the poopstorms are blowing in and through everything.
I never realised how much I had eased silliness off my plate. Gradually. Over long stretches of Time. Until one day I did NOT miss it BEcause I had gone so long without it.
Today I am BEing Silly. BEcause I CAN BE.
I am taking on the giggly attitude of my 5-year old self and the ohmygodicanNOTstoplaughingandNowthereismilkspurtingoutofmynose self.
I am going to laugh, out loud or quietly and just to myself, no matter what anyone says or does. I am going to replace every cranky and judgmental thought with a smile. A realisation that I am NOT so different from anyone else.
I am tired of BEing sensible and acting like I am a grown-up with a pinched scowl and lots and lots of noise running through my birdbrain.
I am going to hop and twirl and dance with my smile all day long.
I hope you will BE Silly, too. However that looks to YOU.
