One of the things that has helped me navigate through some of the harshest and most difficult challenges in life was and is my innate magnetism to joy and humor – so that I WILL smile and LAUGH... I have laughed a LOT in my life and ironically, I have even found ways to look back on some pretty harsh and challenging times, and laugh at some things that were ‘no laughing matter’ at the time I was going through it... One of the main reasons why I am so very close to my sister, nieces and nephews and certain cousins is because we rarely ever part ways without finding laughter and humor in something, be it a situation or ourselves. We literally and figuratively tickle one another’s funny bones like no other and this reinforces our bond and closeness.
Many of us are walking around too uptight, on edge, fearful, worried and just too pessimistic. Starting today, I challenge all who read this forum to begin finding ways to see humor in yourselves and others… Learn to just LET GO and LAUGH! Or better yet, go to a comedy store or rent a DVD of some good comedians and JUST LAUGH! Be like a child and play with the children in your life, as if you were one of them and JUST LAUGH. After all, laughter is and will always be one of our greatest natural medicines and I have provided a great article below, that breaks down the mechanics as to why the aforementioned statement is a proven fact.
