Dear laughter

Dear laughter,

You know what’s funny?

Of course you do, you’re laughter for crying out loud.

Kids laugh at literally everything.

Adults, at least me anyway, often get caught up in the responsibility of business and only laugh half the time we used to.

Ah, the good old days.

And That’s No Joke

Suomi Beach Chair? Guess Again
Suomi Beach Chair? Guess Again

Who are some of your favorite comedians? What makes them your favorites? Foxworthy, Cosby, Skelton, Chaplin, Carlin, Pryor. Seinfeld, Ellen.

So funny and so famous, they need only one name. Wonder if they wanted to be famous, or simply enjoyed making people laugh? Ever wonder when in their careers they felt destined to be famous?

After re-reading yesterday’s post a half-dozen times, I almost changed it, because it’s not only in action, but also in solitude, doing nothing, that we gain self-knowledge.

And that’s no joke.

Do you have words that fill you with Joy?  Words that inspire you? Words that instantly create positive images in your mind?

Do those do anything for you?  How about these:

  • Faith, Hope, Love
  • Peace, Harmony, Balance
  • Creativity, Innovation, Change
  • Laughter, Humor, Bliss
  • Hunger, Desire, Passion
  • Determination, Tenacity

Words. So many good ones. So much meaning.

Mid Life Crisis and Mid Life Celebration. Ya with me?

Mid Life Distance

“Laughter is the shortest distance between two people.”Victor Borge

Hope you enjoyed the rare Mid Life Celebration blog post yesterday.

Rare?  Yes.  In fact, it was probably the first of it’s kind. A joke.  And it brought joy to post it.

I have it in me.  Really, I do.  Every one has a sense of humor, even me, and laughter is good medicine.

Just yesterday, I was in the Atlanta airport heading to Dallas, and asked a couple with grown children, “Any advice on raising boys”?

With the husband still thinking of an answer, the wife instantaneously responded, “Have a sense of humor!”

What are the odds?

December Dedicated to Joy

November was dedicated to Thankfulness, and now December is dedicated, mostly, to Joy.

There are several types of Joy.

There’s Joy in your Spirit, in knowing you have a Creator that loves you beyond measure.

Joy in daily living, perhaps the “fun factor”, sort of like happiness, and laughter.

And also Joy in being unselfish, in serving others.

Finally, I believe there is Joy in knowing you are living your best life, with a moral integrity that leaves you humbled by what you’ve overcome.

It’s a Joy, to dedicate December to the concept  of Joy.  You may have a different perspective on Joy.  The fact that we are free to express, and think for, ourselves should bring us Joy.

One thing for sure, I’m especially thankful for Mid Life Joy!  🙂
