  • Fun with Laughter

I woke up one day on top of the world. I felt good and thought I looked good. I decided to wear all black because it's a good color on me. I chose black tights and shoes, black slip, black blouse, and black skirt. I pressed my skirt, dressed and left for work. I was really feeling sharp. I stopped for gas and was gratified to notice people looking at me. I thought, "They, too, must think I look good." After filling up the tank, I drove on to work, feeling like a million dollars. When I got to work, people were staring, and I beamed with pride. Then when I reached my section and walked in, my friends and co-workers started laughing. Following their eyes, I looked down and was absolutely appalled to realize I had forgotten my skirt. I made a break for my car, and spent the rest of the day hiding out at home. Thank God, I can laugh about it today.

Common questions about laughter

Why should I consider laughing when I feel so bad?

Because we laugh when we are hurt and laughter heals. The laughter was yours for the taking at birth. You used it then, and you can again. It's simply a matter of opening oneself to the healing powers of one's own body to assist in dealing with our painful emotions. We have to feel our emotions in order to heal. Our thoughts then assist our understanding. We need to feel as well as think in order to regain our balance so we can cope.
