Laugh a Little...

"I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it's the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It's probably the most important thing in a person."
~Audrey Hepburn

I found this video today on one of my favorite inspirational sites and couldn't resist re-posting it. The article stated that a recent health study determined that there are three primary reasons people can't cope in life:

  • They have low self-esteem
  • They live in the past
  • They don't laugh enough

In my opinion, I think it's partially because people can sometimes take life too seriously. I also read that the same study concluded that we need a minimum of 12 laughs per day just to stay healthy. I totally agree with this and personally, find it to be very true. I try to look for the humor in everything. For me, life without humor is simply miserable!  I think it was Charlie Chaplin who said: "A day without a laugh is a wasted day."...  I think
he was right!

Laughter is one of the simple joys of life that is within our reach at all times. It is to the soul what soap is to the body.  It is... "an instant vacation."  Below is a short, 3 minute slide show with some humorous quotes on life to brighten your day.  I think we can all find time for a 3 minute vacation, don't you?
So go ahead...  take a few minutes out of your day and laugh a little...  


"Seven days without laughter makes one weak." 
~Mort Walker

"So many tangles in life are ultimately hopeless that we have no appropriate sword other than laughter." ~Gorgon W. Allport

"Laughter is the shortest distance between two people."
~Victor Borg
