BrewNSpew Café June 3–Flippant

The right balance is required in life. In our attitudes, I mean. Go overly serious and concerned about all the details in life and you are surely going to lead a very stressful life. But if you are lackadaisical about the life in general and your own in particular, you may not be living in stress but your family maybe. You see there are expectations of us. From our parents initially and then from our partners or spouses. When kids arrive, they bring their own set expectations of how we should be conducting our lives into that mix. The result is that we have to somehow try to fulfill these expectations. A balance where we are not too flippant about life and all that it entails has to be reached.

Take things lightly, but not too much

Work hard and try to get to your goals

But leave some room for play in the plan

Life is meant to be a wonderful mixture

Of hard labor and joyful moments of merriment

Of serious thoughts and actions spiced with

Some flippant and lighthearted point of view too

Live should be a pleasant journey and not drudgery

The prompt;

Word of the week – flippant (adjective) – not showing a serious or respectful attitude.

Synonyms – frivolous, superficial, glib, carefree, thoughtless, offhand, cheeky, pert, facetious

In response to;
