LoL – That’s an Order!

This is an all-call for humorous inspiration! Around so many corners we get slammed, slashed, slathered, and slimmed with doom and gloom . . . . health issues, economics, politics, religious bents, blah, blah, blah. STOP THE WORLD, I WANT TO GET OFF!
Well, not really ’cause life rocks, and that surely isn’t the answer, either. So, what is? I mean, little ol’ me can’t shift the mentality of the doom and gloom culture. Hold on, oh ye of little faith! I can control me and my mentality. What’s in my age-old bag o’ tricks? How about some humor and laughter. You know, there is real power, earth shattering, mind altering power, in being goofy.
I know I can make people laugh, and so can you. My ability to do so is a gift I got from my dad . . . . God help us when he wants to tell us how the angel got to be on top of the Christmas tree . . . one. . . more . . . time. If you’ve never heard the story, I’d gladly put you in touch with my father.
Take a moment to think about the 3-4 people you make you LoL so hard that that tears run down your legs (if you’re a woman who’s given birth, you’ll get that). For me, in no particular order, they are:
- My everlovin’ hubby of almost 29 years (poor guy)
- My friend who makes my legs cry, Suzanne . . . check out her new blog at suzieklein.com
- My stitch (yes, I said “stitch”) of a now sister-in-law, former college roomie, Lisa. . . we rent her out for parties
- My friend and co-worker of 20+ years whose giggle is infectious, Tina
Surround yourself with members of your humor tribe, every day, and you’ll be inspired to pay it forward. This daily inoculation of laughter is one amazing tool to keep us mentally, emotionally, and spiritually healthy, and a step ahead of the debbie-downer nay-sayers.
Now, get out there and laugh yourself (and others) silly!
