    Yes They Do.

    It took me about 8 years but I'm a lot happier now that I can and do quite frequently. I think it's good to be able to accept your inner silliness.

    Give Yourself The Greatest Gift

    I know, here he goes with the cliches again! But seriously, I had discovered long ago that allowing myself to laugh at me, opened the doors to make others laugh also. I can't argue with the fact that laughter is the greatest gift, it makes you live longer, top that!
