Pure joy is a precious commodity. Happiness, in contrast, is attainable but can be fleeting.
I was recently thinking that as I get older, there are fewer opportunities to have a rip roaring good time. I’m capable of diving in if the opportunity arises but opportunities are random and even rare…especially working in the field of HIV prevention, education and support.
Everyone needs a laugh kit…something to pull out when everything becomes too serious. I’m thinking I’ll figure out what makes me laugh now that I am moving towards my fifties. Who wants to forget that joy is part of this life experience? Sombre reflection is also a life tool but I need to be reminded that it’s not the only way to solve a problem or get through a setback. Laughing out loud is not just a texting acronym. It can actually be done in real time!!!
