Life Is Much More Fun After the Laughter

Last night I got to enjoy an amazing experience.

A great friend of mine received a prestigious award. And, unbeknownst to her, I was there just outside the room to hear it.

As the ceremony wound down, we adjourned upstairs to the lounge with half a dozen others. The next 90 minutes were spent in non-stop laughter, as we each chimed in with stories, jokes, observations, etc.

I’m not talking about small chuckles, we fired up some gut-busting laughs until two of the women ‘snorked’ through their noses. You know, that snorting laugh that acts as lighter fluid on a barbecue…WHOOMPH!

We tackled subjects ranging from the bar-fly mosquito who seemed hell-bent on sipping our drinks to bad 70’s music to pre-recording messages for our own funerals.

It wasn’t forced. It wasn’t fake. It was a group of people laughing and celebrating without a care in the world.

And you know what?

It felt great.

I need to remember to create more of these silly moments into my life.

I just realized I have spent the last 2 nights laughing (had a comedy reunion with old friends the previous night), and have arisen with a huge smile in the morning mirror.

How can you add some laughter into your world today?

Is there someone you know who could really use a laugh?

Perhaps you can be the one to provide it.

Remember: life is much more fun, after the laughter!
