"Let go for dear life..." ūüŹĀ On Any Sundays

‚ÄúLife is too important to be taken seriously.‚ÄĚ

- Oscar Wilde


Two politicians are sitting in a room discussing affairs of state. Suddenly a man bursts in, apoplectic with fury, shouting and banging his fist on the desk. The resident politician firmly says to him: "Peter, kindly remember Rule Number 6" whereupon Peter is instantly restored to complete calm, apologizes, and leaves the room. The politicians return to their conversation, only to be interrupted again minutes later by a hysterical woman shouting wildly, her hair flying. Again the intruder is greeted with the words: "Marie, please remember Rule Number 6." Once more, she too leaves with a calm apology. When the scene is repeated for a third time, the visiting politician addresses his friend...

"I've seen many things in my life, but never anything as remarkable as this. Would you be willing to share with me the secret of Rule Number 6?"

"Very simple," replies the resident politician. "Rule Number 6 is 'Don't take yourself so g-damn seriously.'"

"Ah, that is a fine rule." After a moment of pondering, he inquires, "And what, may I ask, are the other rules?"

"There aren't any."

Is there anything in your life right now that could use a perspective check?

Anything worth a reminder that, in the grand scheme of all things life and death, probably isn't that big of a deal?

Let go for dear life...
