I Try to Smile and Laugh As Much As Possible

    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...

    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. ...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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! :)

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
