This is only the second Friday of 2022, and already the year is off to a rib-tickling start. I don’t know if it’s because I’m an over-60, midlife woman who’s seen first-hand how short life really is — or because I’ve been happily solo retired for going on three years — but I find myself smiling and laughing at little things so much more these days.
Of course I have down moments. Like everyone, I feel sadness or disappointment at times. Once, last year, I actually cried tears. This was an occurence so rare that on a whim I grabbed my phone and started weirdly snapping photos of my snotty crying in process. Bizarre, I know. I wanted to capture what it looked like so I could remember what it felt like. I ended up turning the images into computerized “artwork,” and published them in my post All is Well.
But that was autumn 2021. Since then, I’ve had more reason than not to find the humor in everyday living, despite the obvious challenges we’re all facing. I wrote about fun in last week’s post, after reading the book The Power of Fun, by Catherine Price. For me, laughter is a huge part of fun, so if I’m cracking up at silly stuff more often, that means I’m having fun more often. Who can’t be happy about that?
This Week’s Laughs
Just this week, five unexpected, random, and simple things made me laugh out loud. That’s a laugh a day so far. Best part is, they were all free. The funniest stuff always is.
That’s it for now, dear readers. What about you? What made you laugh this week? Here’s hoping your weekend finds you chuckling.
