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!
