Silliness-It's A Must

How often do we hear teachers telling children to stop being silly?
What's wrong with silliness?
Isn't it the right of children to be silly?
After all they are the masters of finding humor in the simplest of things; a funny face, an absurd noise, or a joke. They all evoke peels of laughter.
As we age we forget how to be silly, often taking ourselves far to seriously. We become disconnected from our childhood and all the wonderful memories of our carefree days.
All that silliness nourished our souls, allowed us to live abundantly and without reservation.

I for one, at the age of 56, still have my sillies.
This gives me the ability to connect with children.

So stop taking yourselves so seriously and have some fun.

  1. The day seems so much better when we ALL have a chance to be silly. I believe it is the best adult therapy around.
