Sunday Citar

We should consider every day lost in which we have not danced at least once.

- Nietzsche, philosopher

Joy in the everyday - we need to do this. An article at Sparkpeople shared a brief article on this as well as the above quote. Here it is:
"Finding and celebrating the joy in life. Each day is a new chance to find joy and to dance. If you let it pass or think it useless, the chance is gone and you'll never get it back. When was the last time you played? Or just did something for the sheer fun of it? Joy is not found in the world around you, it's within yourself. You can make your own joy, especially during those dark times when you need to really feel alive again. Fun and play are healthy antidotes to taking life--and ourselves--too seriously. They're proven boosters of immune systems and mental health and make life worth the trouble. So do the twist. Sing in the shower. Learn a magic trick. Watch a cartoon. Challenge some kids to a game. Don't let a single day go to waste. "
