Trust30 - Prompt #4: Post it Question

That which each can do best, none but his Maker can teach him. Where is the master who could have taught Shakespeare? Where is the master who could have instructed Franklin, or Washington, or Bacon, or Newton? . . . Shakespeare will never be made by the study of Shakespeare. Do that which is assigned you, and you cannot hope too much or dare too much. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Writing prompt: Identify one of your biggest challenges at the moment (ie I don’t feel passionate about my work) and turn it into a question (ie How can I do work I’m passionate about?) Write it on a post-it and put it up on your bathroom mirror or the back of your front door. After 48-hours, journal what answers came up for you and be sure to evaluate them.

My response:
I thought about this for a while.  And after much solemn contemplation, I concluded that my biggest challenge right now is remembering to Laugh Out Loud Every Day.  Sometime between the age of 12 and 40-something, I’ve forgotten how to have fun, let go and guffaw.  I do smile a lot.  I chuckle when I hear a funny joke. I am basically happy and grateful for my many blessings.  But I take myself and my life a bit too seriously.  I cringe at my own mistakes. I worry (a lot). I fret over my To Do list...
They say 'Laughter is the Best Medicine' and even though I'm not quite ready to attend Laughter Yoga, before another solemn day passes me by my post-it question is
