4 Funny Text Messages, and What They Can Teach Us About Life

Funny text messages and self-help - what's that all about
then?

Well I reckon that some of those funny sms jokes you get
sent on your mobile phone can actually teach us all a thing
or two about life.

And I'm going to use this short article to prove it.

And if, after reading, you're not convinced - and you didn't
laugh at the free sms jokes either - then I'll happily offer
you a full refund.

Because, as everyone knows, you get what you pay for in this
life.

Or do you?...

Funny SMS #1: If I begin to procrastinate today instead of
tomorrow, would that be considered self-improvement?

It would be considered cute, for sure, but I'm not sure
procrastinating today is ever a good thing. Even though I'm
as guilty as the next person. (I've been meaning to write
this article about funny text messages for weeks now. And
it's only because I'm putting off writing another article
that I'm writing this one today!)

Seriously, procrastination is just another way that fear
shows its ugly head. And fear is (mostly) a bad thing. It
stops you from being the person you really are.

Funny SMS #2: Be friendly with your kids, they choose your
home when you are old!

Hah, now this free funny sms is perhaps not so funny when
you get it sent to you from one of your children! And in
terms of self-help, it's all about your actions having
consequences I guess, and the need therefore for us all to
take full responsibility for them.

Of course if you don't have kids then do the heck what you
want!...

Funny SMS #3: Hard work has a future payoff. Laziness pays
off NOW!

This is another of those cute procrastination funny text
messages. But there's a strong element of truth in it:
laziness does pay off now, and we all like instant payouts!

So there's nothing more to say, really, other than be lazy
now! Yep, it's bound to get us what we want in life.
Provided, of course, that all we want in life is to be lazy
now (and we happen to have won the lottery)...

Funny SMS #4: The things that come to those that wait may be
the things left by those who got there first.

Which is another way of saying the early bird gets the worm.

Which can also be thought of as the worm that got up early
got eaten by the early bird.

Which is my way of saying, sometimes it pays to wait, and
sometimes you need to take action now.

Your mission, Jim, should you decide to accept it, is to
know which time is which.

Okay, that pretty much proves it conclusively folks that
those funny text messages you get on your cell phone aren't
always a waste of time.

Sometimes, the person who sent it to you is really trying to
give you a subtle message about life.

And sometimes they just wanna make you laugh. Like with this
funny sms...

Boy: I am not rich like Raoul, I don't even have a big car
like Raoul. But I really love you! Girl: I love you too, but
tell me more about Raoul...

Yes, this is one of those funny messages that doesn't have a
self-help meaning. And I've included it here simply because
it made me laugh.

Oh, come to think of it, that's all right actually. Laughing
is good. In fact, I'd go as far as saying that laughing is a
sign that we're enjoying life. And I'm pretty sure that's
the point of self-help isn't it, to enjoy life more. (Or is
the point to life so that we can get to know (or be)
Raoul?...)
