“The human race has one really effective weapon – laughter.”Mark Twain
Do you appreciate laughter? Really appreciate it? I hope you do and I hope you appreciate it until you pee. Honestly. There is nothing that can warm your soul or help heal your world like laughter. I know this is something you have heard a million times but… are you listening?
Life is hard. (As mentioned in my blog 2 posts ago.) So what. Laugh. That’s what. There are days when you can do nothing but cry and I have recently had one of those days. Actually two but who’s counting. But. Then it was over and the next day I found me some funny-ass friends and I laughed. And then I sat down and I thought about why I had cried. And I could rationally think about it. And analyze it. And do something about it. Fix it. And I could do all of those things because I took a pause and I laughed.
You can’t be serious all the time. You can’t be sad all the time. You can’t be mad all the time. You can’t laugh all the time either. So mix it up. But make sure you get some of that last one in there because it’s important. I don’t care what you have going on. I do but for the purpose of this post, I don’t. Things are going to happen. Bad things. But you get to chose what you do with them. Be miserable all the time and guess what. Shit gets worse. Promise.
Are you wallowing in self pity? Done that too! Do you think you have nothing to laugh at? Been there. But guess what? That’s baloney. Ever hear of You-tube? There is some funny shit on that. A dog talking about bacon. A toddler pleading his case to his mother, Linda. Ozzy man reviews. A Jim Gaffigan clip. It’s all funny. Oh! Robin Williams on golf! My all time favorite. Google it. I DARE you not to laugh.
Don’t let misery win. Don’t wallow. Don’t stay down.
I dare you to laugh (or at least snort a little).
Life is too short to be serious all the time. So, if you can’t laugh at yourself, call me… I’ll laugh at you.”Unknown
