    Laughter Makes Life Bearable

    I've been through certain things in my life that make it difficult to have a positive outlook, but I do my best to be cheerful and fun. I have dark days but generally I'd say I'm a pretty bubbly person. My kids crack me up all the time. I try not to dwell on the negative things...

    It Helps

    I find that looking on the bright side helps me to cope with the family feud. I don't think they understand how much these fights affect me. I couldn't hardly sleep last night over the latest argument. Food seems to be my way of comforting myself. It also helps to have someone to...

    Truth

    I think life is so incredibly horrible that an inner commitment to joy is the only thing that will keep me from dragging my *** around moaning and whining all the time.   I get sick of thinking about my problems and of hearing myself rant and complain, and I FORCE...

    Its Important

    I love being happy....frankly, I don't know who doesn't like to be happy. I am an advocate of finding joy or at least humor in the small things because sometimes, a little giggle can change the course of your entire day. That's why I laugh, smile, and play every chance I get! :)

    It's Healing!

    Before this year... I hardly laughed or smiled. In fact my family (and myself) was starting to think I wasn't capable of it! I first smiled, when I first talked with my friend Philip on Yahoo Messenger. And this shocked myself and my family. My face felt weird, stretching in a...

    Pause! For A Giggle.

    I do laugh a lot. I find a lot of situations in life ******* hilarious. My brothers, friends and most people can make me nearly **** myself. I think that's one of the things that has definitely improved in my life over the past year. I had lost my sense of humor, but was able to...

    Smiles and Laughter

    I try to smile enough when I'm in a good mood because there is no need to mess up someone else's day with my moodiness.  Plus when you smile, people never know what you're really thinking. I also try to watch comedies and funny reality tv and movie all the time because they...

    More of a Habit

    Smiling and laughing is my default reaction.  I don't make a conscious effort to do it, but I usually do anyways out of habit.  It's really just the way I am.  Me and my big, toothy grin. I find the way other people react to that kind of interesting though. ...

    I Love Laughing...

    I like to laugh and make people laugh. At my last job I would do crazy things that made people laugh, in turn I would laugh. It was fun. I just wish that I can find another job like that. I always smile. When I'm around people I smile at them and majority of them smile back. Or...

    I Try To...

    Life is way to short to be so serious all of the time.  So I try to enjoy every moment of the day and yes I do laugh and smile a lot.  I find that I surround myself with people who do the same.

    Why Not

    You don't get smiles if you aren't willing to give them so I do. I smile and acknowledge everyone as I pass, open doors, laugh and enjoy every moment. Life is too short to walk around with a puss face on so live a little and be happy. And who knows what you might get in return...
