There are few better things than a good belly laugh! 🙂 Laughing, especially with my sisters, is one of my very favorite things in the whole world. Laughing AT others, however, is a whole different ball game.
I pride myself on the fact that I will never make fun of anyone, for any reason, and I would encourage you to think about doing the same thing. Keep in mind, that often what you are making fun of someone for is something which they have little control over. Now, I am not claiming to be “holier than thou”…Believe me, I can certainly be sarcastic, but only in good fun. I make it a point to laugh as often as possible….I can just assure you that it will never be at someone else’s expense…
“To belittle is to BE LITTLE.” –Unknown-
Laughter truly is one of life’s best medicines. It has the ability to LIFT your spirits and LIGHTEN your mood almost instantly…that is, until you are the object of one’s laughter. If you have ever been on the receiving end of someone’s joke, which many of us have, you know what I mean. Laughter takes on a whole new meaning. It transforms from providing a sense of JOY and COMFORT to one of anxiety, hurt and stress. If you know how it feels to experience this, why would you ever want to “pay that forward” to someone else? Always be laughing WITH others… not AT them. Life is so much better when it is filled with laughter, of the good kind, for it opens the heart and soul to HAPPINESS and ultimately, isn’t that our goal?
“At the height of laughter, the universe is flung into a kaleidoscope of new possibilities.” –Jean Houston-
“A sense of humor…is needed armor. Joy in one’s heart and some laughter on one’s lips is a sign that a person down deep has a pretty good grasp of life.” –Hugh Sidey-
If you want to laugh AT someone, laugh at YOURSELF! 🙂 In my opinion, having the ability to laugh at yourself makes otherwise stressful incidences much more carefree. With the understanding that not everyone is perfect…no, not even you ;)…and that mistakes WILL happen, it is much easier to navigate through these types of situations. So you spill something, or perhaps take a spill yourself…so what?! LAUGH! 🙂 With a SMILE on your face, dust yourself off and hold your head HIGH…remember, this is why chalkboards have erasers. Life is meant to be enjoyed. Lighten up on yourself ~ and on others ~ and experience all of the FUN that your journey has to offer….
“Laugh at yourself and at life. Not in the spirit of derision or whining self-pity, but as a remedy, a miracle drug, that will ease your pain, cure your depression, and help to put in perspective that seemingly terrible defeat and worry with laughter at your predicaments, thus freeing your mind to think clearly toward the solution that is certain to come. Never take yourself too seriously” –Og Mandino-
