I Love to Laugh

It is requisite for the relaxation of the mind that we make use, from time to time, of playful deeds and jokes.  -Thomas Aquinas

 

I love to laugh.  I reflect back on Mary Poppins and think about the tea party on the ceiling and the joyful song “I love to laugh.”  It puts a smile on my face and a tune in my heart.  http://youtu.be/pOMqqI-kzHY

 

I enjoy a good joke . . . I enjoy the playful banter of colleagues who enjoy each other’s company.  It is important – in any profession and in any role – that we take the time to build relationships that extend beyond the work.  Great organizations support each other, know each other . . . great organizations laugh and cry together.

 

Life is more than work and work is more than life.  Discipline-driven doesn’t mean we don’t enjoy each other, we don’t laugh, and we don’t joke around.  Part of being disciplined in our lives is finding the time – the right time – to simply enjoy life together.
