The Unexpected Laugh: Yay or Nay? I say YAY!October 12, 2009
You know how sometimes your feeling a little off and your not quite sure why, well I was feeling like that recently when I decided to search youtube for something really deep meaningful dramatic to suit my mood. I wanted to watch something emo, heartwrenching and serious because I just knew that’s exactly what I needed to shake this vibe off. So I started random searching and for quite a few minutes I couldn’t find anything that appealed to me except a clip of that scene in Sophie’s Choice but I decided to save that for the grand finale of this session.
So then I come across the video below and I don’t know what made me want to play it (I mean, I’m here for serious business remember) but something made me push the button and then the weirdest thing happened… I laughed SOOOOOOO much I had tears in my eyes and I was rolling on the floor… seriously lol!
And I laughed for the longggggest time, deep non breathing belly laughing that had my sides in pain for a long while after which made me keenly aware that all of a sudden I was feeling lighter, less serious and more mischievious.
Now, I do have a sense of humor and I find all sorts of things hilarious but this unexpected fit of laughter reminded me just how long its been since I’ve been able to laugh myself out of a low mood. Ok so this time Chris Tucker gave me a helping hand but the lesson I find so profound is, all the work I’ve been doing on learning who I am, and all the positive deep connections to people in my life have helped me come to the stage where I can actually allow myself to enjoy little moments of fun!
Ya know what I mean?
No matter lol, I just wanted to share with you, laughter is a beautiful medicine, and just knowing that is the highlight of my day.
Thanks Chris Tucker, you silly fool!!!!!!
