    I absolutely believe in a good sense of humor

    in very important. If not you will be laying on a shrink's couch and paying him or her hundreds of dollars of your hard earned money for mental therapy that you could do yourself and with others.

    $20.00 Sometimes we just need to be reminded!

    A well-known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a $20.00 bill. In the room of 200, he asked, ' Who would like this $20 bill? ' Hands started going up. He said, ' I am going to give this $20 to one of you but first, let me do this. He proceeded to crumple up...

    Life can break one in

    so many ways . So cruel and unrelenting at times .I consider myself fortunate for having had a Mom with a great sense of humor and maybe by osmosis I inherited a piece of her while growing up .To me, it's a great stress reducer.In other words, having a sense of humor has kept me...

    Everyone's life sucks.

    It doesn't matter if you're living as a suburbanite in a "first world" country, a rag picker in India or a member of European royalty, there are things about your life that suck. Having a sense of humor makes life not to bad. And dwelling on the "bad" things will make you...

    Comedy has been defined

    as tragedy plus time. The trick is to learn how to shorten the time. I have had a few Epic Bad Days. You begin to wonder, what else could go wrong. When it does go wrong, I have been able to laugh almost immediately. If I took everything seriously, life would be sad and...

    Laughing is not only good

    for the attitude but also for the body. It relieves so much stress and anxiety. Look at life as if it is filled with humor. Deal with the horrors of life, but always look at the positive that will come from it.

    It is hotter than a 2 dollar bill down here.

    And I hate to awaken already sweating before I get out of bed; even with the a/c on . My biggest gripe is not the high temperatures and the fact that this is the rainiest summer I've seen in a long time. It's the humidity, it's been hovering around 98%----that really wears me...

    I think a good sense of humor is important

    because it explains the type of person you are. A happy person, and if somebody never laughs or smiles then that means they're miserable inside or just plain mean. Not the kind of person to be around.
