There is a lot of value in adding humor to a life. We are such serious folk when it comes to living. Not all perhaps, but most I would think. We take things way too seriously. Then comes a day of reckoning where we are reminded how petty our grievances and those things over which we fret. Humor has a way of putting things in perspective.
Whimsy, like humor, is another pursuit I think worthy of consideration. It is lighthearted, invokes a smile and adds sunshine to an otherwise plain, ordinary moment.
In the garden, I like to add a few elements of whimsy and humor because it elicits in the wanderer much needed joy and laughter. Paired with colorful plantings, even better.
Take a moment to stop. Smell a flower. See an occasion to laugh. Healing can be found in the simplest of things. Don’t take yourself too seriously. Somehow life has a way of working out.
