Humor and Creativity

I am so thankful to be surrounded by people who have a great sense of humor and are full of creativity. If you don't have someone near you every day who makes you laugh - change that. If nothing else, become the one who makes yourself laugh. It is the healthiest thing we can do for one another.
It's not laughter at the expense of anyone else. That is not healthy. It's laughter about life. Finding humor in situations. Teasing each other into seeing our funnier selves. Seeking opportunity to create funny occasions out of any possible event. I so admire that in people and can quickly jump on board.
Laughter creates an energy of its own. It's renewing and refreshing. It's positive. It's uplifting and it's unselfish. Simple pleasure.
Work can be a stressful environment. I work with great guys who will find a way to make me laugh no matter what. How good is that!
I have great friends who love to laugh and they easily find humor around us. All of these people have one thing in common - they give to life. They believe life is a creation and they believe they can create something bigger than themselves. That bigger thing may be as simple as a better day for the person beside them but to me that is VERY big.
If every one of us could do just that - make a better day for the person beside us - how good could that be! It's happening beside me. Make it happen beside you!


  1. I believe that when you have a bad day, the perfect antidote is HUMOR.

    I'm sitting in the comedey club, watching a stand up comedian, with a funny movie playing on my computer, reading Garrison Keillor, reciting my favorite funny stories to the person next to me, who says I should be up there on stage, using the Sunday Comics as a place mat...gives you a clue as to how my day went.

    I keep telling myself: I'm buiding character, I'm building character...

  2. LOLO - you are one of the funniest people I know.
