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

Copyright © 2010 Steve M Nash

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?…)
