Find the Humor in It
Together, we laugh a lot. Learning to laugh, learning to find humor either in what we’re going through, or despite it, is a powerful tool on this journey.
Cherish the gift of humor. Life doesn’t need to be so gloomy. Spirituality doesn’t need to be so serious and somber. Work doesn’t need to be that way either.
Look for it.
Surround yourself with people who like to laugh. Being around people who laugh can open us up to the power of humor in our own lives. Laughter can become contagious. There is something magnetic, something healing, about being around people who let themselves laugh often.
There is no situation in life that can’t be improved by laughter. Sometimes humor can help us get through situations we couldn’t possibly endure without it. Sometimes laughter isn’t superfluous; it’s essential.
Sometimes laughter is the next
lesson we need to be learning.
