Give no room to gloom.

Yesterday ended last night. There’s no need to drag it through today. If you don’t learn to enjoy today, you probably won’t enjoy tomorrow either.

The amount of joy in a house isn’t based on its square footage. Happiness has little to do with happenings, but much to do with a grateful heart.

When you wear a grin, circumstances won’t look as grim. Joy happens in the heart. A closed heart misses out.

Happy humor flushes misery from the mind. Don’t forget to flush! Heart-felt humor is a tension tamer.

Maintaining a wholesome sense of humor is a vaccine against anxiety. Humor is everywhere. Learn to see the funny the surrounds you. Heart-felt humor is often hidden in plain sight, just like the elephant in the room.

Too much focus on achievement can delete much enjoyment. A sunrise in your eyes can make you realize the wonderful prize a new day brings you.

Without a healthy sense of humor, it’s easy to become a gloom-and-doomer. Life’s full of humor, but most people only notice a tiny portion of it. See more happy humor. People who want to have fun need a big dose of kind, heart-felt humor.

If you find humor in your problems, it’ll be easier to solve them. Heart-felt laughter helps you cruise through life and ship worry away. Finding heart-felt humor in a difficult situation can crack up the pain and dissolve it away.

Facing pain playfully reduces its impact. Silliness eases its effects. Too much analysis produces humor paralysis.

Heart-felt humor helps me appreciate and embrace the seriousness of life. Cheerfulness is medicine; sadness is poison. Humor happens through out your day, but most of it goes unnoticed.

Worry anticipates bad. I invented the word “worglee” to remind me to anticipate good. When you train your heart to enjoy each moment, you feel no need to search for happiness outside of yourself.

There’s something good about everybody. It’s fun to take the challenge and try to find it.

When you see life like a theme park ride or a video game, its challenges become exciting. Without curiosity life can become a boring monstrosity.

Give no room to gloom. Setting aside gloom will brighten up your room. Being brave enough to face the elephant in the room gets life unstuck.


Affectionate humor is one of life’s greatest experiences. Kindness and laughter are a powerful team! If you’re looking for comedy, the best place to start is with your own behavior.

Although negative emotions often seem like monsters, they’re really nothing but pesky feelings.

A bad mood isn’t caused by your personality. It’s caused by you letting frustration disrupt your life.

Your mood has accrued from the thoughts you’ve deposited in your mind. To improve your mood withdraw the painful ones.

What you’ve viewed has helped make your bad mood. Now focus on viewing what produces inner peace.

If a thought or behavior isn’t giving you joy, why continue it? What good is free time if you don’t enjoy it?

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
