It made me laugh, but then it made me realize that humans do have a tendency to complicate things.
That memory comes to mind whenever I’m stressed, or trying to figure out why things happen the way they do. And then it makes me ponder the age old question … what is it all about?
While the answer may differ for everyone, most people would say something about the importance of health, and family and other relationships. That’s how I would answer, too, but if I put aside the family, relationships, etc., and ask myself what’s important to me as an individual, outside of being a mom, a sister, a daughter or a friend, what would I say?
That silly hokey pokey bumper sticker comes to mind. It’s funny and poignant, and makes me realize that aside from family and friends and good health, laughter is what it’s all about.
So, here’s my best attempt at bumper sticker philosophy: “Smile. It makes people wonder what you’re up to!”
Better yet: “Make someone laugh every day!”
