LOL. We’ve all heard it stands for “Laugh Out Loud,” but on a deeper level it means “Live Our Light.”
What does that mean?
It means quit taking things so seriously!
We stress about things that don’t matter and don’t serve us, and ignore the things we could be grateful for. Even some of my yoga friends get so serious about their practice and meditation that I often wonder if they are missing the point! Sometimes the deeply spiritual thing to do is to Laugh Out Loud and Live our Light.
For example, yesterday I went for a run and dropped my uncased iPhone on the street. I smiled. In the past, a litany of swear words would have come out of my mouth.
Now I can smile and know that sh*t happens, but I have the ability to choose how I respond.
Bottom Line: Having a sense of humor is a spiritual practice. Laughing mindfully connects us to the present and reflects the joy that is inside each one of us that we often forget exists.
With that in mind, the next time you’re LMFAO, know that you are also “Living Mindfully, Free and Open.”
