The Opposite of Politics

Posted by on November 7th, 2012, under SNAPSHOTS


Last night, as the commotion was coming to an end, and my son was verging on total insanity from staying up too late, his 3-year-old mind decided to articulate a point I think bears repeating…

Spider-Finn's PSA

Good luck stopping Finn from having fun. Imagine living life like that?

So, let’s take this message and carry it forward. No matter your political, social or moral affiliation. Now is the time to make our lives better, in spite of whatever perceived obstacles lay before us.

Because the opposite of politics, the inverse side of all the throngs attending the political circus sideshow is the simplicity of our human experience together.

And try out, the “happy is fun” lifestyle. It’s toddler approved.

All my best (fart jokes),

Charlie

    And I am totally going to use that line on my 4 year old next time I’m dealing with grumption. (It’s a word.) And yes, I’m serious… “Being mad isn’t fun. Being happy is fun.”
