I hope it’s coming through my blog posts that I’m feeling much better since my break from blogging in April. The tone of Single Dad Laughing is a lot lighter again and hopefully will stay that way for a long time.
It seems that the heavier things get around here, the more I forget not to take life too seriously. So much of my writing becomes heavy, overly-contemplative, and serious. And that’s not very fun, on or off of the blog. I started this blog in an attempt to laugh more. Not less.
So, I was hoping you’d all do me a big favor.
If you feel like I’m falling into that constant heaviness again, please send me an email with one word in it.
That’ll be our new code word.
And no, that’s not a dirty word. Wenis is the loose skin on the end of your elbow.
Don’t get me wrong. I’ll still talk about whatever I want to talk about. I’ll still say whatever’s on my mind. I’ll still do my best to make this world a little more loving. And, I’ll still write on the heavy side… once in a while. But for the most part it will be shorter posts, sillier posts, and stuff that’ll make you laugh or smile.
I’m just asking you to do this because I know that you all tend to see me getting to that low point before I’m ever willing to admit it to myself (as is evidenced by all the comments and emails telling me so). So if I start getting a bunch of emails that say:
I’ll know that it’s time to take another break.
It’s good to be Single Dad Laughing again.
PS. I’m sincerely wondering… what are your favorite everyday posts that you like to see here on Single Dad Laughing? What makes you smile and laugh? What have I not done in a while that you miss?
