We all take life and ourselves a little too seriously. We get upset about things that really don’t matter. We also get super serious about our spiritual practice. But sometimes the most spiritual thing to do is too LAUGH.
I had some incredible reminders of the value of NOT taking things so seriously last week. Monday started with major tech glitches that threw off my schedule. Then a pipe burst in my bathroom that flooded half the downstairs of my place. Then I slipped on the kitchen floor on my way to shut off the water and hurt my back. Then I started laughing hysterically as I laid splat and soaking wet on my kitchen floor realizing both the humor and lack of control. I’m incredibly grateful to have come a LONG way in knowing that sh*t happens but we always get to choose how we respond.
Later in the week I was at a yoga class and the teacher spilled a grande soy latte all over her new iPad. Instead of freaking out and getting upset, she calmly wiped it up, had a fantastic LAUGH over it and went back to teaching/serving us. That is some authentic namaste.
