Any Other One Thing – Daily Wisdom
Welcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. We are on Day 1702 of our trek, and it’s time to explore another nugget of wisdom, which includes an inspirational quote along with some wise words from Gramps for today’s trek. Wisdom is the final frontier in gaining true knowledge. We are on a daily trek to create a legacy of wisdom, seek out discernment and insights, and boldly grow where few have chosen to grow before.
Hello, my friend; this is Gramps. Thanks for coming along on today’s trek as we increase wisdom and create a living legacy. Proverbs 16:16 says, “How much better to get wisdom than gold, and sound judgment than silver!” If you apply the words you hear today, over time, it will help you become more healthy, wealthy, and wise as you continue your daily trek of life. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget.
Today’s quote is from Laura Ingalls Wilder, and it is, “A good laugh overcomes more difficulties and dissipates more dark clouds than any other one thing.”
Any Other One Thing
We all like to be around individuals or groups of people who make us laugh. Comedy is a huge industry. Our TV lineups are packed with what we call sitcoms, which stand for situational comedy. Laughing is proven to be beneficial for the body, mind, and soul. Therefore, we should live to laugh at our situations or even ourselves from time to time.
Unfortunately, sometimes we just take ourselves too seriously. There is somewhat of an overused phrase that I see hanging in many homes and offices, but it has a lot of truth about how we should face each day. The saying is: Live, Laugh, and Love. We should apply this phrase to our lives in this manner. Each day as you are going about living, don’t forget to laugh with others and love others.
When we apply this mantra to our lives, we will come to understand the quote for today…“A good laugh overcomes more difficulties and dissipates more dark clouds than any other one thing.” In addition, we need to make it a point to encourage others, be kind to others, and invest time in laughing with others. Let’s not take life too seriously. Tomorrow is a new day, and most of what we are concerned about today will never happen.
A glad heart makes a happy face; a broken heart crushes the spirit.
For the despondent, every day brings trouble; for the happy heart, life is a continual feast.
As you ponder this nugget of wisdom for yourself, please encourage your friends and family to join us and then come along tomorrow for another day of our Wisdom-Trek, Creating a Legacy.
