This morning I was not in the best of moods. A combination of grumpy, overworked, sad, I guess a good term would be just sort of edgy. I am uncomfortable being grouchy, but thankfully I have friends that get grouchy with me and when we get together and grumpily discuss, silly options and solutions to our most pressing stresses it helps to calm the edgy demeanor and make us laugh.
Sometimes when sad events or memories creep into the mind it has a tendency to have a domino effect that can cast a shadow of sadness onto any experience if you allow it. The best way to counter act the domino effect is to make yourself laugh.
I found the Laughter Yoga video’s a few years back when I was working with adults with disabilities. It became a very fun way to distract or redirect negative behaviors on difficult days.
I hope you will watch the video completely….I am sure you will find yourself laughing along with the video. Silliness is a good thing.
When my children were young we loved the VeggieTales Bob the tomato, Larry the cucumber, could always spark a few giggles as well as relay many important positive messages and techniques for getting through life.
Hopefully you will take a moment to enjoy their silliness.
Larry shares one of his deepest fears with his therapist……. If my lips ever left my mouth, packed a bag and headed south…..
Thank you to my silly friend’s early morning phone call that sends me into the day envisioning silly options to the monotony of reality.
And thank you to Marianne’s along side of the road post for making me seek out some more silliness today 🙂 I hope you will click on the link and read her post. I am sure you will enjoy it!
With Respect, Hope, Joy and Love, Carmela
