The letter L

L is for Laugh

Some days you just have to step back, take a deep breath, and laugh out loud. Try it sometime. Life is way too serious these days. What does my boss think of me? How many books have I sold this week? Does anyone like what I write? How am I going to pay the bills this month? Just relax, read a funny book, go see a comedy at the theatre, watch your two year old play in the grass. Whatever puts a smile on your face, DO IT!

My wife likes to make fun of my family sometimes when we go see a funny movie. It seems that I have a rambunctious laugh—and so does my sister—and so do both my sons. What can I say; when we laugh we don’t hold back. Try it some time. The truth is, with life being what it is these days, laughter doesn’t come around often enough.

I know you’ve seen someone break out in raucous laughter, haven’t you? What was your first reaction? You laughed too, didn’t you? At the very least, you broke out with a large smile.

If you can’t do anything else today, try to laugh a little, or at least smile. It’ll make people wonder what you’re up to.

Howdy. Just doing a quick fly-by on the A-Z challenge, and I took the time to read most of your posts. You're off to a great start. As for laughing, I do. Probably too much. I have a knack for finding humor in just about any situation, and/or making a sick pun about it. I figure life's took short to take myself or life's little setbacks too seriously. Count me in as your newest follower.

Laugh and the world laughs with you... Sigh - no cliches --- enjoyed the truth of your post -- read some of the earlier ones too -- best to you with the blog tour for your new book (back at "H") I'm hoping for that "stess" one day and laughter will certainly help.

Visiting AtoZ blogs is proving quite eye-opening

I miss laughing so hard my stomach hurts. Seemed to happen a lot more when I was younger.
