Laughter – the joy of laughing. What makes you chuckle, guffaw, chortle, giggle, snicker, shriek, or roar with laughter?
Be thankful for the laughter in your life!
Firstly, you could list all the entertainment which makes you laugh. Many have favorite comedians and movies that make them laugh.
Then… make a list of people in your life who make you laugh and for those you love to laugh with – even if it’s been a bit of a while since you visited together.
Add these lists to your gratitude journal…
(I find myself smiling as I think of those beloved people who make me laugh. If you find it difficult to make this list, then perhaps it’s time to seek out additional friends?)
It’s a privilege to laugh within a group.
Maybe invite some friends to bring over a movie to watch where you can all laugh together. Or do a YouTube search, taking turns playing funny videos…
It’s good to laugh.
