A preacher was annoyed by an unknown old gentleman who fell asleep every Sunday during the sermon.
One day on the street he saw a lad who always accompanied the old man and asked the youngster who the old fellow was. “Oh, that’s grandpa,” said the boy.
“Tell you what,” suggested the preacher, “if you will keep him awake during the sermon I’ll give you a quarter every week.” The boy agreed and for two weeks the old gentleman stayed awake and attentive during the preaching. The third week, however, he reverted back to his old ways and went to sleep again during the preaching. After worship, the preacher spoke to the boy and asked, “Didn’t you agree to keep your grandpa awake every Sunday for a quarter?”
The boy replied, “Yes, Sir, I did, but now Grandpa gives me 50 cents not to disturb him.”

Life is complex enough in itself. Our duty is to make it as fun and pleasant as it can possibly be even in adversity. I believe, one must have sense of humor in order to carry through and lighten the burden of our every day mental stress. Otherwise, life’s trying times could drown us in self-pity and bitterness. Life is too short. To cry over spilled milk not only stalls you, but takes away the joy of our experience in life.
We are subjected to trivial and significant challenges every day. The way we choose to respond to them is what will make the difference. To certain extent one has the power to make the best out of the worst situation,. Just tackle it with a sense of humor. It’s sort of a reminder of the old adage that says, “If life throws you lemons, make yourself a lemonade.”
Along my life’s journey I realized that regardless of any given situation ‘s status, the psychological burden that comes with it is easier to deal with, if is taken with a sense of humor. Living life is a serious business. But if we see things from the bright perspective even when there isn’t one, it’ll help you fell less stressed during your sad moments.
