Today's #WednesdayWisdom nugget is fun and games which seems to be a theme this week.
(Check out my oracle card theme reading post from Monday) 😁
I talked a bit about Joe Rogan who I wouldn't equate with Stoicism but apparently he's all about it. Who knew? 🤷♂️
And he is quoted as saying, "If you ever start taking things too seriously, just remember that we are talking monkeys on an organic spaceship flying through the universe." Something about that struck me as funny yet profound. And reminded me that we often take life so seriously when it's meant to be fun. 💃 Perhaps if we thought of life as a game or a dance and approached each person and situation as a partner with whom we might learn a new step or refine one we already know, it would feel easier, lighter and more fun.
I mentioned quite a few quotes in the video and won't bore you with all of them here but do want to leave you with the gist and overarching theme... Dont wait to demand the best for yourself.
A bit of struggle is part of the process but it's how you perceive it that makes the biggest difference on how it impacts you overall.
And one final thought from Voltaire...
"Uncertainty is an uncomfortable position. But certainty is an absurd one." So freaking true.
Remember we learn from one another so please share this wisdom with those who may need it today. Xo
