Hello Lovely You,

When did you have a full out belly LAUGH until your stomach hurt so much you couldn’t laugh anymore.

In fact, most of the time, you feel angry, tearful, and are living in fear. That is no way to live.

Look for funny signs. How about this one?
Be a rebel and do something funny like I did in this store in New Zealand on my last visit home. The owner asked me to put the Kiwi bird down and leave the store!! Oops! New Zealanders are affectionately called “Kiwis.”
Go ahead and cry buckets and act goofy when you feel like it and laugh like a maniac. Scream if you want to. Do it with good intention and know that it is all part of your healing.
As infectious as laughter is, it is so good for your health. Humor has been used in medicine for thousands of years. One of the first mentions of laughter in medicine dates back more than 2000 years. The first well-known study of humor and health was the famous American journalist Norman Cousins. In his 1979 book Anatomy of an Illness, Cousins cured himself of a spinal condition with a self-prescribed regimen of laughter and vitamins.
