So here is a nice clean G-rated joke you can tell people... "What did 0 say to 8?" "Nice belt!" They say that if you have to explain a joke, then it's not a good one. But just in case someone missed the joke - the drawing below will explain. Laughing is good for us! And helps us to stay positive!
When we feel negative and down in the dumps, there is nothing like a good belly laugh to turn things around. The problem isn't gone, but our attitude shifts from negative to positive - at least for that moment. How you handle a situation is entirely up to you. You can enjoy it or you can be irritated by it.
Take my birthday in 2008. A great friend, we've known each other since high school, sent me a singing telegram at my office. She knows I am an Elvis fan, so she sent me an Elvis Impersonator. My coworkers thought I was going to be embarrassed and irritated. Instead, I LOVED IT! I laughed and sang a lot with Elvis and my coworkers joined in and danced too!
In the end, "Elvis" asked if he could serenade me and had me sit on his knee while he sang to me... as you can see, I was still laughing and enjoying the moment.
Life is short! LAUGH! Make yourself laugh. Make your friends laugh. A genuine laugh makes you feel better. It helps to lighten your mood and the mood of those around you. Who knows you might end up having fun!
This last photo was when taken when I participated in the Susan G. Komen Walk for Breast Cancer. It helps raise money for research to prevent and cure breast cancer. While that is a very worthy cause, many people still die from breast cancer every day. It is devastating for the families. But, would you believe that there were hundreds of people wearing pink boas, pink wigs, crazy pink hats, pink outfits, you name it!
While life can be very serious -- we don't always have to be. Enjoy life! Laugh a little. Or A LOT! Be Positively Inspired. Oh... I almost forgot - Thank you, thank you very much!
