I love a good joke and I love to laugh.

But April Fool's Day is one of those I'm-happy-when-it's-over holidays. Like New Year's Eve. And Halloween. The less thought and energy I put into them, the more quickly they'll pass.

So when this blog post by Jamie Ridler showed up in my Inbox this morning, it sort of caught me by surprise. Not because it contains information that I don't already know. But because it puts a fresh spin on what it means to be foolish. And it couldn't have come at a better time.

I've been taking myself and my work way too seriously lately, and it's taking a toll. If, like me, you've been struggling to find the light and joy in your day-to-day, Jamie's insights may resonate with you, too. Or at least remind you to be more open. As she says, the gift of letting go of knowing is the opportunity to learn.
