Earth laughs in flowers.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
“The problem with temptation is that you may not get another chance.” — Laurence J. Peter
L-O-V-E this quote. We all know those times when it is just so tempting to allow ourselves the permission to react to a lack of politesse. To snap and zap. To allow all of our righteous irreverence to percolate to the surface and bubble over. All delightfully justifiably so. Not only is this oh-so-easy to allow, it can be inordinately fun. Irreverence can be such a balm in the absence of etiquette. And there is nothing like a good laugh with someone who loves you to heal the soul.
Sometimes it is good to gain perspective and to be good to our own selves. Pause. Laugh. Embrace. Seek those who love you dearly. Give in to the temptation of irreverence. Have a good laugh. Know that you are very much loved. Remember that what rude people think is none of your business. Let the Wookie win. Embrace reality. Cultivate reality. Know that someone loves you. Laugh and have a great time. Give in to the luxury of temptation. You may not get another chance.
