I would like to introduce you to Mr. Einstein. The famous photo, taken in 1951, of Einstein sticking out his tongue, cracks me up. It makes me wonder if his mother carried around this photo in her purse. Did she pull it out whenever she had the chance to show off her boy? Why wouldn’t she? Afterall, she is a mother, (we all know how mothers can be,) and he was a genius. This picture of a “silly” Einstein sticking out his tongue became his trademark, what he was known for. Isn’t that funny?
While creating this ATC, I was asking myself…….what is my trademark? I came to the conclusion that if a genius could find the time, in the midst of E=mc2, to be silly, so could I. We all use the phrase “Life is Short,” but seldom change our lifestyle to fit that phrase. We find ourselves being stressed out over…..well,……… everything,………… and our lives are in sync to calendars, due dates, and demands and before we know it the opportunity to be just “plain silly” is gone. It is in that silly moment our soul is saturated with the best medicine………..laughter.
Make being silly a priority this week, make it your trademark!
