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.
