It’s okay to complain. I do it, you do it, we all do it. It’s a natural vent for getting things out, and getting to the positive side of things. Something that I feel I am good at is finding the brighter side, which usually also includes humor and laughter.
I love to laugh, make jokes, and entertain. It is part of who I am, how I define myself, and what makes me happy. It’s difficult not to be happy when you are smiling and laughing. And when you are riding a roller coaster. Or sky diving.
I am not a psychologist, counselor, therapist, brainwasher, Vulcan mindmelder, or use The Force, and I don’t have ESP
N. But in my world, I trust that when people can laugh about things, they can survive them.
One of my very favorite quotes, and I use it often, is by Bill Cosby.
“You can turn painful situations around with laughter. If you can find humor in anything, even poverty, you can survive it.” – Bill Cosby
I believe that, to my core. We’ve all been through difficult times in various shapes and sizes. What has gotten me through almost every single hard time and helped me learn how to smile again is the power of laughter and the support by people who like to laugh as well.
Try it. You might like it.
