Jim Valvano – Words Crush Wednesday Favorite Quote Challenge

imageTo me, there are three things we should all do everyday. We should do this every day of our lives. Number one is laugh. You should laugh every day. Number two is think. You should spend some time in thought. And number three is, you should have your emotions moved to tears, could be happiness or joy.

But think about it. If you laugh, you think and you cry, that’s a full day. That’s a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week, you’re going to have something special.

Golda Meir – Words Crush Wednesday Favorite Quote Challenge

momma'spics 038“Those who don’t know how to weep with their whole heart, don’t know how to laugh either.”

Golda Meir

I am the kind of person who feels things deeply and reacts emotionally. I definitely weep with my whole heart. I used to be bothered by my uncontrolled outpouring of tears and sadness and grief while seeing other people not being visibly moved. I have gotten past that. I realize it’s natural for me to show honest emotion, and it is also healthy. Sometimes there is nothing as therapeutic as a good cry.

On the other hand, I am also able to laugh and enjoy life and have a good time. I love the times when I laugh so hard that I can barely catch my breath or when I end up holding my abdomen because it hurts. To be able to really laugh at life and ourselves is a wonderful thing.

To me Golda Meir said it very well.

Golda Meir (1898 Р1978) was the  fourth prime minister of Israel.
