Letter on humour
I am back and found my humor again. The space I have been in the last couple of days was not quite nice to be. So I really feel a relief that I can laugh again and I look at myself more humorously.
I am also quite happy that the sun came out again after hiding for a couple of days behind clouds, being accompanied with cold and fog.
So not even my inner mind has changed the weather has changed too, for a while at least!
I would like to focus a little bit on humor, because I often forget about its power and its influence to my life and my attitude in accepting life.
To be more specific, I know the kind of sarcastic humor which I use from time to time, which is when I am so much overwhelmed that the only way for me to cope is sarcasm. This is not what I am relating to.
I am more thinking of joking and even satirizing myself in a nice way, the way that others can follow too and the way I connect with myself.
Such as when I looked at my last post I could see my desperation and thought what others might think about this. I had to keep the distance to look at myself in another way.
Using humor is my way to feel energy and spirit again.
It’s also a way to look at things differently. The situation has probably not changed in the meantime, but my attitude has. Being humorous is taking it more lightly.
I know these areas of bitterness and resentment quite well and they have got a big chapter in my life already and at the same time I know that I can also play with my emotions on another level as well, with taking me out of the “everything is so serious” attitude.
This is what a love about humor that it is catching, eye-catching, laugh-catching and emotion-catching.
I’ve got that cup which my friends once gave me for my birthday where it says:“A day without a smile is a day wasted”. I would add “A day without laughter is a day wasted”.
Live – Love – Laugh
