Lighten up already…

Do I consider myself funny? I don’t think I am particularly funny, though friends have commented now and then that I am funny. Perhaps I have a dry sense of humour sometimes. I say things that I don’t really intend to be funny but sometimes people find it funny. I am better at self-deprecating humour, poking fun at myself, or wry observations of situations.

I am lucky enough to know a few really funny people in life. A friend’s husband is a rather witty person. He can make the most mundane things seem funny. He just has a way of putting things that make you crack up. It is also hugely entertaining to watch them both have their half-serious arguments. My friend is also rather funny herself, so when they have a go at each other, it sure is entertaining for the rest of us!

Humour is important to life. Life is much easier when we are able to see the lighter side of things. I like a good laugh. I’d prefer a funny movie to a drama anytime. I also love cartoon movies – I am forever dragging my husband to those. Reluctant though he might be, he always ends up liking it. They just loosen you up – the silly antics, the surprisingly witty humour, the mad expressions- good stuff…

It is also important to laugh at yourself. When the going gets tough, when I find myself worked up over something, I try to get out of the situation and look at myself from the outside. Sometimes, I just laugh at myself for taking things too seriously. That’s the way it should be. That being said, I don’t laugh nearly as much as I should. Do I think that my problems are so serious I shouldn’t be laughing about it? If I think on it – no, not really. Yes there are tough times, but no need to be so serious; I should lighten up!

Here is to a lovely laughable day to all!
