I find some of the happiest people I know have the ability not to take themselves too seriously. They can laugh at themselves and see the craziness of life at times.
A while back I put up a post about climbing up to a place and sweating buckets to see a “waterfall” that was a trickle. I was laughing at myself.
Today I met a Brazilian who has been in Japan a relatively short time. He couldn’t read the labels on things. He shared how he went to the store to buy dishwashing detergent and got what he thought was the right product but ended up with a jug of salad oil.
I remember being so proud of myself for running and catching a train one day. My pride was short lived as the train started to pull away from the station in the wrong direction.
