    It Keeps You Sane.

    it would be funny if life wasn`t so sad.i find so much of what goes on funny.life is full of just plain funny moments.it`s just were to busy or upset to notice.i try to see those moments and cherish them.they are to far and to few.

    It Actually Works..

    If laughter did not exist, I would be a very miserable person and my life would be pointless to be living. I'm always stressed out and depressed but my sense of humor and laughter is what keeps me sane!!
