In Others’ Words: Funny Good Fun
Sometimes the Friday blog post seems to call out for a Dr. Seuss quote.
That was true last night as I pondered today’s post … and the “good fun” quote seemed perfect.
Maybe it’s rainy where you are today. Or maybe’s it’s sunny … or snowy … here in Colorado the weather is so unpredictable we can have rain, sun, and snow all in the course of one day. And you know what? We’re kind of proud of the weather-craziness.
Whatever the weather where you are, let’s focus on the “good fun” part of the quote … and how a rainy day (circumstances) shouldn’t stop us from having funny good fun. We have to be like the Cat in the Hat, who spoke this quote, and then acknowledge the reality of our circumstances as he did:
I know it is wet and the sun is not sunny …
But even acknowleding the rain and the lack of sunshine, the Cat in the Hat determined to have fun.
Lesson learned from a fictional character?
- Be realistic about the rain (your circumstances).
- Find a way to have funny good fun. (How can you encourage optimism or outright joy in the midst of your cicurmstances?)
In Your Words: On actual rainy days, what do you do for fun? And when virtual rain has you down — when circumstances overwhelm you or discourage you or break your heart — how do you find joy?0 I like this!
