Humor/Happiness facts/quotes

Humor from our richest 'Humor Resource'......our kids

Little Johnny attended a horse auction with his dad. He watched as his dad moved from horse to horse running his hands up and down the horse's legs, rump and chest.

After a few minutes, Johnny asked, "Dad, why are you doing that?" His dad replied, because when I'm buying horses, I have to make sure that they are healthy and in good shape before I buy"

Johnny, looking worried, said, "Dad, I think the UPS guy wants to buy mom."

Are we having fun yet?

When I ask people in my audience what they would like more of in their lives, most of them will have 'More fun,' at, or near the top of their list.

Do any of the following statements sound familiar to you?

  • I have no time to have fun
  • There are too many 'more urgent' and 'important' things to do
  • By the end of the work-day, I am exhausted and have no desire, nor inclination for fun
  • If I were to do have some fun, I'm afraid that I would look foolish and immature

The foregoing list are just excuses. Once people are having fun, none of these excuses hold any water.

People don;t give themselves permission to have fun and can come up with a zillion excuses.

So what are some of the things you can do to create some fun in your life?

  • Go to a theme park and be a kid again for a day ( with or without the kids )
  • Go to the lake, beach, indoor water park. Play with your kids, or pretend you are one
  • Have a BBQ with your friends. Ask everyone to bring some water balloons, water guns etc. And let the games begin!
  • Have friends over for a game of cards, or other fun game
  • Have a pool party with friends and their kids

If you lose your zest for laughter - you lose your zest for life!
