I Will Laugh Myself Back To The Good Side Of Life
I try to keep the bottom part of the home page filled with humorous, strange or enlightening information. My goal is to show my customers a glimpse into my psyche (or psychosis, whichever term applies correctly) and they can get a better feel for who I am and can feel more comfortable. I had one gentleman say to me the other day, "I go to your website to see what type of craziness you have on this time." (paraphrased). That is the intent of this portion of the page. But I always try to use humor for the laugh factor. I feel it puts people at ease and you can really tell a lot about a person by the humor they use. It's open and honest, not unlike the "eyes being the windows to the soul". I came across Kris Palmer's blog about laughter and what it has meant to her, it pretty much explains my philosophy, also. Here it is for your perusal.

Charlie Chaplin said, " A day without laughter is a day wasted."
This is my new mantra. I read somewhere that a health study determined that we need 12 laughs a day to stay healthy. As well as it will make you and everyone around you feel good. I know that when I laugh I feel better. And here is my story and how making laughter a priority came to be. I have always had a good sense of humor. I attribute that to my mother. I raised my kids to have a good sense of humor. It was important to me that they could laugh at themselves. And they can. Over the course of the last 9 years, it became evident I was laughing less and less each day. When it was time to move on from that life, I decided that my only goal was that I was going to spend the rest of my life laughing. Keep in mind I have a lot of short term goals, however if on the day I die I can say from that defining moment in 2008, I have laughed every day with my kids, my friends, my family, my coworkers and even perfect strangers, well then, what a joy filled life I have had. The last 18 months have been a difficult time for me. I can't imagine being able to get myself through it without laughter. I don't believe I am back on the good side of life yet, however I can see it in the distance and it is getting closer. I attibute this to a terrific set of kids, an excellent shrink and Dr. J, a new friend of mine that keeps me laughing!!! As I made this a priority, I have been more aware of the people around me. It is sad, but very few people smile anymore. No one wants to make eye contact with anyone, no one walks alone or even in the company of someone else with a smile on their face. I challenge anyone reading this to spend tomorrow with a smile on their face for the entire day. Make eye contact with people on the street and say hello. You will be amazed at how terrific it makes you feel. I took my kids to see KOOZA, Cirque du Soleil, tonight. It was a terrific show. However, on the way home in the car with the music turned up loud and all of us singing, grooving and laughing together was the best part of the evening. I can honestly say there is nothing better than a family filled with laughter. Please try to spend the entire day tomorrow smiling, wishing you many moments of laughter until next time.
