Everyday these tiny, small creatures scamper across my roof. The squirrels run across my fence and scour my yard for the nuts they hid in the fall. Watching the squirrels is comical. Yet, every time the squirrels put a smile on my face and laughter in my belly. Can you say that every person you interact with smiles and laughs as a result?

In life we tend to get too serious. We are either so focused we don’t realize other people exist or we’re too distracted (by phones, tv, news, etc.) to pay attention to the needs of other people. Would you want to regularly hang out with either of these people? Probably not.

We most enjoy being around people who are playful – just like the squirrel. This way we have fun in our everyday moments and don’t take life too seriously. What’s the best way to truly connect with someone? Share a laugh. Even if it’s a really bad joke.

How can you bring a sense of fun and play to your next interaction? Or better yet – your next meeting?
How can you lighten the mood or uplift someone’s day?
How can you make someone laugh today?

Squirrels are mischievous creatures always on the move to be more playful. I hope you bring squirrel characteristics into your day.

Wishing you an abundant, joyful and prosperous day!
