Laugh, think, and cry - everyday

"To me, there are three things we all should do every day. We should do this every day of our lives. Number one is laugh. You should laugh every day. Number two is think. You should spend some time in thought. And number three is, you should have your emotions moved to tears, could be happiness or joy. But think about it. If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week, you're going to have something special."

A coworker actually shared this quote with us at an office meeting lately and it's really stuck with me. The quote was made by Jim Valvano, an american basketball coach, shortly before his death in his acceptance speech of the Arthur Ashe Courage and Humanitarian Award during the inaugural ESPY Awards, presented by ESPN in 1993. During this speech, he also announced the creation of the "V Foundation", an organization dedicated to finding a cure for cancer.

He really got it right, though, didn't he? Laugh, think, and cry - everyday - and you'll lead a very full life!
