Finding Laughter: Was it Worth it? (Day 31)
During the month of October, I hoped to increase my laughter quotient. My topic for write31days was finding laughter through books, experimentation, interviews, Ted Talks, and movies. I wasn’t sure if I would find comedies, books, and life, in general, funnier. I wasn’t sure if I could be funnier.
The comedies and books that I didn’t find funny pre-October, I still don’t find funny post-October. I am okay with that now; I am who I am. I am, also, not a funnier person; I am okay with that as well. And finally I learned I can be a better laughter recipient (where I will be more likely to laugh as your jokes).
The main thing I learned is that I can choose laughter as a way of living. I can choose to look for the funny about me. I can choose to do things that add laughter to my life and to the lives of those around me. I can choose to have an attitude of joy and a habit of cheerfulness. I can choose to keep Jesus as my foundation and thus I can be an overcomer.
And I see that I am not finished. There are more books to read and jokes to learn. I have more movies to watch and some just might make me laugh. I have some Ted Talks to listen to. I want to write a review about these talks and some books as well. Therefore, my Finding Laughter project will be longer than 31 days. As I finish up these additions, I will add them to the list on the Landing Page.
In conclusion, it was worth it!
Your Turn . . . What have you learned about laughter? . . . Which one of my posts is your favorite?
THANKS FOR READING ALONG.
I joined 100’s of others at #write31days to write every day in October 2015 on a single topic. My topic is 31 Days of Finding Laughter. I will spend time each day studying laughter to see if I can improve my laughter quotient.
Go here for the landing page which has all the posts in one spot.
Read, learn, and discover with me what this world of laughter is all about and is it all that it’s cracked up to be. And be sure to leave a comment. Talking together will make for a richer, interactive experience for all of us.
