A reminder to us all.
It seems this time of year we need a good laugh more than ever.
Whether it’s busting your ankle from a fall on the ice,
Or having to put down a damn good dog,
Or supporting a neighbor through chemo,
Or worrying about the uncertainty of the world,
Or yet another morning rushing to work because you didn’t leave enough time to shovel the snow off your truck, again… then you open the driver side door and the snow piles onto your seat, again…
Let’s pause, just for a moment.
Let’s make time and intention to chuckle, chortle, giggle and snort, to double over in hysterics. When was the last time we all had a good belly laugh?
Invite those friends over, even if you don’t have time. Pour them more wine than you should on a school night, bust out Balderdash or Cards Against Humanity.
Tell more jokes. Join a dodgeball team. Dust off your old Calvin and Hobbes comic book. Surround yourself with those that make you feel good and make you laugh. Maybe if we do this a little more frequently we’ll strengthen our resolve, our hearts, and ourselves.
And let’s not forget to take our Vitamin D!
“The human race has one really effective weapon, and that is laughter.”
In love and you guessed it, laughter,
