turtle 1

Do you think turtles get mad and want to yell.  Can you imagine what this turtle encountered to make it beach itself and scream. Turtles after all live underwater along the reefs and rocky shoreline. What ever caused this Turtle to behave like this  must have been terrifying. People have a tendency to think the worst, but what if you you changed that thinking and thought the turtle was laughing cause he just heard the funny joke about what one sea shell said to another…..  Or, perhaps the turtle is getting ready to take a nap on the beach and I just was there at the right moment to see him yawn.

So while there is one picture, there are several different possibilities as to what the story is.

This is an example of how we can interpret a situation by a visual cue that is likely biased to our individual mindsets. It could also be that people can hear words being spoken and receive a meaning different from what the sender was trying to communicate.  This could be do to many factors.  Two examples are if english is a second language  or your listening to someone speak with an accent.  it is very easy to understand just enough that you assume things.  This is where problems start.  You cannot ever know what is in someone else’s head, so assuming you do is really a waste of time and energy.

The way to find out what is going on with another person is to talk to them.  Ask questions, be present when they answer, by this I mean pay attention.  Don’t look at your watch every few minutes.   Maintain face to face contact. Invest your attention on the other person and that effort will produce effective communication.

Now, as for the turtle it was late afternoon and it wanted to haul out for a nice rest. I was just lucky to be able capture it yawning.

Take care everyone!

laughing is good medicine.  Humor has been proven to improve health,  and lighten stressful situations.  So laugh a little, it will do you good.

If you look you can find things that are funny it just requires a bit of effort.  Some may find humor viewing late night tv talk shows like Real time, the Daily show, tonight show, e.t.c., but you can also find it in books.

I just read the “one hundred year old man who climbed out the window and disappeared”.  The book was so funny I laughed out loud and could not put it down.  After reading it I had a smile on my face all day.

You can also search for jokes on the internet. A joke a day is good for the soul and laughter is good for your state of mind.

It does not really matter where you find humor, what matters is that you laugh and take a moment to forget your troubles and smile……..
