Golden Thoughts – 2

Adam Gopnik has become one of my favourite storytellers after having listened to one of his talks through The Moth podcast via iTunes. It was entitled “LOL”. It is a narrative between a father and son and the dialogue they have online via instant messaging. I hope you have a chance to listen and enjoy it.

This brings me to my second Golden Thought – Laughing.

If you’ve ever read Reader’s Digest, you know they have a section called Laughter is the Best Medicine. And according to doctors this truth is no laughing matter!

Today’s economic climate of uncertainty has put a damper on many people’s faces. From cancelled office Christmas parties to paychecks that have been cutback, there has been little for many people to smile about. And yet tomorrow, many of my American friends will celebrate U.S. Thanksgiving.

And many will smile. Why?

Good food. Good friends. Good times. It is true, especially today, to remember that we have many things to be thankful for.

Not only that, but I beleive that a heart and mind that is light, joyful, and focused on success and solutions enable both to receive thoughts and vibrations of the same. Read and study Think & Grow Rich by Napolean Hill for more on this.

So that’s my Golden Thought. Laugh. Out Loud.
