The sense of humor

In my opinion one of the most beautiful, valuable and helpful gift given to humankind is the sense of humor.
The laugh has so much power, it helps play down the importance of certain situations, helps taking some distance from our issues, and fill our soul with joy.

The laugh is one of the most neglected soul food! Some praises, some meditates, and some makes a therapy, some listen to music, some does art, but most of us while growing up and becoming adults forget to laugh…life seem to be such a serious think.

Think of this: Children don’t do most of these things, but (otherwise they are prevent to do so) they never forget to laugh…..Did you ever take a break and listen to children laughing? It is such a beautiful music.

So all this to say that we should sometimes stop taking life so seriously, nobody asked us to do so, and start using more of this precious gift that we have: Our sense of humor.

a sense of humor is so important. i don't think i could get through the struggles of life without being silly and laughing all the time. it boggles me to see people who are so serious and so uptight all the time. i don't know, i think i'll always be a kid at heart=)

That's my problem, I'm so serious. Gonna try to laugh at myself a little more, maybe in a week or 2.

Great advice, Angela!
