Humor brightens my life.
I introduce my kids to funny things from my childhood. We watch Pink Panther cartoons and make popsicle stick crafts. We sing camp songs and dance the twist. We bake cookies shaped like dinosaurs and eat toast with banana slices arranged like a face.
I enjoy inside jokes with my family and friends. We keep alive memories of road trips and summer vacations. We invent our own strange holiday traditions.
I pass along lighthearted images and news. I curate cat videos and weird vegetable pictures for my social media. I post links to unusual museums and sports.
I lighten the mood at work. I organize games for lunch hours and office retreats. I celebrate days when we can bring our kids and dogs to work. I keep a candy bowl on my desk filled with valentine hearts year-round.
I look for something amusing in difficult situations. I share stories about epic traffic jams and disappointing dates.
I search for inspiration. I look for things that make me smile. I watch children and animals playing. I listen to stand-up comedians and retail workers. I read comic books and bumper stickers.
I spread joy and positive energy. Laughter is something I can share for free. I feel a warm glow inside when someone likes my jokes.
Today, I appreciate the funny side of life. I use laughter to promote happiness and healing and bond more closely with others.
