That’s just silly

Laughter soul soap quote w logo

Facts: Mondays can be rough. When things are hard, it’s tempting to vent to those around you to alleviate the yucky feelings from off your chest. In the moment, it feels like we’re handing them away to someone else. What we’re really doing is multiplying them — spreading them without reduction. Feeding negativity.

Venting feels good because it’s an effort at bonding, and it’s raw honesty. You don’t need to go low to get those things, though.

Today’s April Fool’s Day – a day built for lightness and laughter. For being silly, and letting your inner child run loose.

If you notice your Monday vibe isn’t quite what it could be on this day when jokes rule, mindfully shift. Lighten up. Since energy is contagious, consider spreading something more infectious than anything that weighs you down. 

Laughter. It’s the best medicine, capable of curing all mood-induced ills. Spread it far and wide, and let the epidemic rule the day.

They are unapologetically who they are every moment of every day. As you think about a person like this in your life, you may find yourself of two minds about them. First, you think of the damage they sometimes do – the feelings they hurt (intentionally or not), the opportunities they may squash through lack of tact, the relationships they may lose over words and actions that are “direct” in nature.

Your second mind, though, probably leans a little differently. There’s something undeniably appealing about a person who holds nothing back. You know what you’re getting with them, and you know it’s the truth, whether you like the flavor it comes in on a particular day or not. You can’t help but…well…respect them for it. Read More
