We are all affected by the rapid pace of this culture to survive and to just make it through to the next day and we lose sight of the meaning of living. Aside from the obvious, like working to earn a living to buy the basic necessities, such as food, clothing and putting a roof over your head.
The simplest devices we possess, we overlook. Just as we charge our mobile gadgets, humans need to recharge their soul devices. There is an app for that. It’s called “choice”. Our choice to find the beauty and good in everything, the choice to dance in the rain without an umbrella and the choice to laugh and not take life so seriously.
We can choose where we live, what we eat and how we dress ourselves, but what we tend to ignore, is our control to live a better life. Then there are occurrences that we don’t have complete control over, such as, the family were born into, our physical appearances, divorce and even the death of a loved one. But we can choose how we deal and react to them.
So, kudos to the person who coined the phrase, “laughter is the best medicine.” And to Steve and Michele, two inspirational, motivational and spiritual leaders, whose calling is to put a spin on incorporating mirth while seeking balance amidst the madness we call life through their weekly podcasts, Laugh Or Go Crazy. Their unscripted exchanges about how as a society we don’t see the big picture. There is an entity much bigger than us out there in the universe that plays a hand in our lives. And this is what brought the two of them together.
Accepting and loving who you are now. “Whatever you do, you have to love it,” exclaims Steve, during his dialogue during the “Love The You Now” show. We’re all looking to reinvent ourselves, when in fact, you’re perfect the way you are. With a little “Spiritual Tune-up to get those unbalanced gears moving in a positive direction, you’ll be ready to take on the world.
In one way shape or form, we can all relate to Steve and Michele. As educators, they have the upper hand to shed some light with their personal experiences on how it’s okay to ask for help, recognizing how special you are and not procrastinating on following through with your Summer List. We all get busy, but as Steve and Michele say, “Why Wait?” Is the quality of this opportunity going to increase if you put it off? According to this spiritual duo, “your youth is now, because tomorrow will come.”
We’re all looking for answers, but what you really should be preoccupying your time with is striving to live a better life. Go night swimming, believe you are a shining star and feel the wonder around you. Navigating through life requires laughter and seeking balance and Steve and Michele are living proof that laughter is the best medicine.
While going through the loss of a very close friend, Steve recalls a phrase that has attached itself to his everyday mantra about living a better life. While growing up as a five year old he would venture to his neighbor’s house and while he was anxiously awaiting for his friend, his friend’s mother would go on a rant about matters that a five year old has no business paying any mind to. His neighbor, who at the time was dealing with a divorce, would say to him after fretting about her life, “what are you gonna do, you laugh or go crazy.”
According to Michele, when asked about when the idea for the show came about (four years ago), she recalled, “well, I went on vacation and when I came back, Steve had the site up.”
Four years later, through all the banter and Skype connectivity issues, Steve and Michele continue to bring laughter and enlightenment to their listeners.
