"Laugh as much as you breathe, love as long as you live."
"If every word I said could make you laugh, I'd talk forever..."
"Try as much as possible to be wholly alive, with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell and when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough."
One of my favorite quotes came from Christopher Morley. He said, "Do, every day, something no one else would be silly enough to do." Anyone who knows me well, knows that that one 'something' can easily turn into many other things. "The person who knows how to laugh at himself will never cease to be amused." (Shirley MacLaine) Well, it's true isn't it? I'm living proof! Constantly amused... Please don't blame me, I take after my mom, who is also very amused when she can laugh at herself. In my opinion, things shouldn't always be so serious. I have found that when I look back on a situation which I have handled poorly, I wish I would've have laughed rather than what my actual reaction was. The situation could have been less intense and complicated. I have learned from those experiences and now do my best to laugh rather than stress!
"Laughter is the shock absorber which eases the blows of life."
I am probably the only one who notices a difference, but I feel like my 'laugh' is back. The past couple of weeks have been pretty awesome. I felt like I'd lost my touch to enjoy life, but I just had some lessons to be learned I guess? I don't know what happened, but I am sitting here on a marvelous Monday and smiling because I had a great weekend. It doesn't matter what I did or who I was with, but I laughed the ENTIRE time! From a hilariously fun concert on Thursday, to a great time 'camping' on Friday, a day with the family on Saturday, and some interesting experiences on Sunday, I laughed. My abs hurt. My cheeks hurt. And I love it.
"God is a comedian, playing to an audience that is too afraid to laugh."
