One my professors in college used to say that you can tell a lot about the character of people by observing what makes them cry and what makes them laugh.
Our tears reveal what we truly value and often contribute to the framing of our life purpose. Tears often shape our souls and become a powerful motivator for us in staying focus while we pursue things that really matter.
Laughter often reveals our true selves. It is the raw response to the things that move us, bring us joy, and remind us of our humanity. Laughter is powerful as well. It not only brings a smile to our face, but also life to our souls.
What things in 2012 brought you tears and laughter? How are you different because of these experiences?
As we move forward in 2013, let’s choose to mindfully enjoy these treasured moments and become better human beings as a result.
Happy New Friends!
