White-breasted Nuthatch - Beneath the Beak


Laugh at yourself and at life.
Not in the spirit of derision or whining self-pity,
but as a remedy, a miracle drug, that will ease your pain,
cure your depression, and help you to put in perspective
that seemingly terrible defeat and worry with laughter at your predicaments,
thus freeing your mind to think clearly toward the solution that is certain to come.
Never take yourself too seriously.
- Og Mandino

Such a unique shot... I love it!

One of the reasons I fell in love with my husband was his ability to laugh at himself and not take things too seriously when they really didn't matter. Great quote!

That is really good advice, and I'm one who takes herself too seriously a lot of the time.
"Don't take life too seriously, you'll never get out of it alive anyway" is a saying I try to remember.
But I have to try..it doesn't come naturally!
Thanks for the reminder!
