Day two…Quote two…
“Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath. And if you have a friend who makes you laugh, spend lots of time with them.”
Life is too short to spend time with people who frown. Frowns are contagious…frowns, are a disease. Although it is possible to maintain one’s happy spirit no matter what energy surrounds you, it is SO much easier to be your true unique beautiful self when surrounded by others who make you smile, laugh and love. And I believe that if you fill your life with laughter, that is what you will attract back to you.
I know this to be true, because this is what happened to me. When my children passed away, one by one, I lost every single friend. No wonder…no one wanted to be around me. You see, I had stopped laughing.
But then I taught myself how to live again–how to laugh again! And I attract those who laugh back to me. Of course, there’s an occasionally “frowny face” in my life. But what joy–what wonder!–when I can, most times, manage to prompt those frowns into less severe lines on their faces.
So, please…laugh! And then? Laugh some more.
My nominations for Day 2 of this challenge are:
