Affirmation for July 29, 2011: Chuckle a Little

A well-developed sense of humor is the pole that adds balance to your steps as you walk the tightrope of life.- William Arthur Ward Thought of the Day:Often times the little things (or sometimes the big things) can get us down. Our thoughts can narrow and we can lose focus on the task at hand.Sometimes, though, we look back at that stressful situation and forget why it was such a big deal in the first place. We retell those stories to our friends and families with grins our faces marking the ironies, the ridiculous reactions, and how in the end the "big" things didn't really seem to matter.Looking at life and using our funny bones to support us during tough times can allow us to stop focusing on the negative and raise our spirits to look at the big picture. The ability to catch humor in a situation demonstrates that you can put things into perspective. Try to keep your hearts light and your mind clear!
