In one of the Andy Griffith episodes, Andy and Opie are talking about Opie’s friend, Johnny Paul Jason’s “lergics” and how he wasn’t allowed to breathe between April and May. Andy says, “He has to breath to live.” It’s the same with laughing.
You gotta laugh.
Find something to laugh about every day – several times a day. The Bible says “a merry heart does good like a medicine”. So skip the pills and laugh. (I’m not a doctor, so don’t not take your medicine just because I said so)
If God says laughing is important, then it’s IMPORTANT. That’s the main reason I started this blog (not just this one you’re reading right now — the whole idea). While everybody else is doling out info about other important things in life like mental health, finances, Biblical wisdom and all, I’m over here just trying to help people laugh more (and dole out a little wisdom in the process).
Maybe you’ve forgotten how to laugh — life with its ups and downs has stolen your giggle box. It’s not hard to track down and recover. Don’t leave it sitting on some evidence room shelf — take back your laugh.
Nothing makes you feel any better than a good, hearty laugh. I find the “funny” in just about everything. If you see me laughing and there’s no one else around, don’t call the guys in the white coats, I’ve probably heard or read something that struck me as hilarious. Laughing is ok.
Yeah, old tv, like the Andy Griffith Show, is the way to go if you want a good laugh. That was some of the best writing ever and those shows were hilarious. The characters were funny just being themselves. I dare you to watch one episode of the “Fun Girls” or one with Goober and Gomer and not laugh. And Barney – Don Knotts could make you hee haw just singing good old 14A.
The world needs to laugh more. Heck, our own country needs to learn to laugh more. So, I”m fulfilling my mission right here, every week (well, most weeks). If you need help finding your way to Laughville USA, tune in regularly and I’ll see what I can to help point you in the right direction.
