March Madness - Day 3

Laugh until your cheeks hurt!

(Hey....get your mind out the gutter. Keep it clean 😜)

Many people look at me and see a super serious person. I tend to be straight-forward and to the point. I do smile at times. I actually love to smile. A smile can brighten someone's day. So why not smile?!

The catch is transitioning that smile into laughter.

I know you've heard the old saying "Laughter is good for your soul."

Well, it's not just a cliche. It's a fact!

Who do you surround yourself with that allows you to release tension, let go, shred hurts and pain, let your hair down, and just be?

That's probably the same person, or group of people, who brings a smile to your face. Makes you laugh. Makes your side ache with pain. Makes your cheeks hurt.

If you don't have at least one of those people in your life, go out and find them. Pray that such a person be sent your way. Begin to be that person for someone else.

Life has it's ups and downs. Be sure to keep laughter in the midst of everything in order to control just how low your downs take you.

Surround yourself with laughter.
          It will give you hope.
               It will give you energy.
                    It can make you feel on top of the world.

What will you do today to make someone laugh until their cheeks hurt?

With a human service and child welfare background, I know firsthand that this story is one in a million. But we also see it every day. If you're like me, you sometimes find your escape in movies and television series. Instead of spending time in your own realities, you spend time watching scripted realities. It's an opportunity to disengage ourselves from the characters on the screen. It's a way to passively accept or criticize the s
