"Humor is the great thing, the saving thing. The moment it crops up, all our irritation and resentments slip away..."
~ Mark Twain ~
It's easy to become serious, and to be overcome with all that is weighty and out of our control. Fear and angst take us over so subtly that we are unaware that we are in their grip, until the strain shows on our brow and gives us an exaggerated sense of fatigue.
     The remedy is laughter, silliness, and light-hearted fun. To feel better, we have to restore a state of play and ease to the happenings of life. Just as light dispels the darkness, humor can lift us up when we are all bogged down.

If I introduce levity to the situation when I am feeling tired and worn beyond repair, refreshed energy emerges, and I am renewed and ready to keep on down the road.
