Laugh It Up

My next-door neighbor is a character and a half. She often has me laughing without even meaning to. As I write this Sunday morning I can hear her next door playing the piano and singing at the top of her lungs while cracking herself up at the same time. She’s having a rip-roaring time and it’s hilarious to hear. I can hear her laughing, which makes me laugh, and also makes me realize how much I enjoy her as a neighbor. I can feel a sense of connection without her being in the same room.  

Laughter is so infectious.  We’ve all had those experiences while in a group where one person begins to laugh, then everyone starts laughing and before you know it you can’t stop. You get to laughing so hard that your belly aches and you have a hard time catching your breath, yet it feels so good to get out. It really is a great form of release and can unify people in no time. 

Finding the humor in day-to-day life is so necessary for survival on this planet. So many challenging things are thrown our way, and when life feel out of control just getting up in the morning can be a daunting task. Keeping a sense of humor, and trying to find the levity amongst the turmoil can make such a huge difference in whether you allow yourself to sink or swim. And remember, your laughter just might be exactly what someone else needs to hear to help lift them up.

Let’s get the ripple going… 

With Love.

From Over There:

“Lightness and joy are a divine state of being. To attain this state one must be open to looking at life through the lens of compassion and humor. Humor mixed with love and humility creates a state that deeply connects one another soul to soul.  Humor that brings one to laughter releases tension in the body and mind, and promotes positivity.  The greater continuation of this state of being one can achieve, greater the happiness.”
