I love this quote from Steve Jobs. Our time is limited and therefore it’s good that we make a point of finding the joy bubbles in each and every day. Not just the big days like Thanksgiving but the small kernels that fall to the ground on a moment to moment basis.
One kernel that I give myself is laughter. I’m always laughing and it’s usually at something silly that I’ve done, said, forgotten to do or failed to remember. I also like to tell others about the silly things I did and in the retelling, I continue to laugh. What else is there?
Until we go easy on ourselves, enjoy our own company and relax – everything will be an uphill battle.
Best of all, when we lighten up and laugh as a first response – everything feels easier.
Laughter as a response… what a lovely idea!

Marge, there’s my blogging friend Stef’s Smile, Kiddo blog: http://smilekiddo.wordpress.com/
You certainly share that philosophy, and would most likely share a smile and a laugh together!
Thanks so much for the link to the Smile, Kiddo blog. The words are sweet and full of wisdom and insight – and tons of humor! Just lovely!
wise words and a good reminder to us all to seek and find smiles and joy in every day. Smile, Kiddo is one of my favourite bloggers!
Laughter is very healing. yes, we all need to laugh at the silly things we do, everyone does them so we should lighten up and laugh about it.
I love your take on this..its true..laughter really is the best type of medicine 🙂 and its so much easier to learn to laugh at yourself than take everything oh so seriously 😛
It’s no wonder that we all adore the same blogs! Stories that evoke memories, incite joy and encourage action are ones that I love to read (and write!).
It seems as I age, I do more and more silly things – mostly because I am multi-tasking and instead of doing many things at once, I tend to flub them all! Another thing to bring a smile to my face! Thanks for stopping by…
And when you laugh at yourself, it gives others permission to 1) laugh with you and 2) tell their wicked tales as well! But of course, that’s why I blog – to share it all!
it’s absurd, but yes, some periods
I’ve wasted my limited time,
living someone else’s life …

What a beautiful sentiment – Find Joy Bubbles. I agree. Life’s too short not to enjoy it to the fullest.
Laughter is the best medicine there is. It reduces stress, relieves pain, lifts the spirits and best of all, it is infectious and doesn’t cost us anything.
You are so right — laughter is free and infectious. When laughter erupts, it seems the everyone in the vicinity gets splattered and walks away smiling!
