This Is When I Feel Grateful: Day 2 Countdown
Sometimes the details of life like working, cleaning and paying bills get in the way and dominate all of my time. I know that I need to put my responsibilities aside and have a little fun sometimes. Busyness can take the joy out of my day unless I remember to stop and laugh a little. Carl Reiner’s quote, “The absolute truth is the thing that makes people laugh” rings true for me. He is a comedian, writer, actor and Emmy winner. He used humor to interject into some of the more difficult situations in television shows, movies and books. Those types of stories are the ones that I can relate to because even as I cry, I can also laugh.
I laugh with, not at, the mistakes of others. I smile as a way of understanding, sharing and connecting because we all have hardships and struggles in our lives, and there is laughter to everyone’s story. Often while sharing a story with someone about something unfortunate that happened to me, I start to feel better when I can begin to see the humor of the situation. It is important to share your stories with laughter to keep life in perspective. When the day just keeps getting worse, the only thing to do sometimes is to laugh. Today I am grateful for laughter.
All through my day, no matter where I go, or what I do, I am always looking for the good. I try to find the good in people, in the world, in my life or even just in my day.
