Laughter…It’s Good for the Soul!

Have you ever just been driving down the road, sort of like on a “Sunday Drive” as my grandmother used to call it, but it was actually Thursday and saw something so funny that it made you not only laugh your ass off, but you had to turn the car around to make certain that you read it correctly? First of all, I never leave home without camera or cell phone w/camera in hand because you NEVER know what you might see,…and I want to be the one to capture the moment and have a hilarious story to go along with it. It happens to me all the time,…then again it honestly doesn’t take much at all to get a smile or a laugh out of me, nonetheless…I saw this sign recently and had to share it.

 As dirty and perverted as I can be sometimes, I still try to remain a true lady in every sense of the word and show you, my viewers that I am classy….ahhh, but “I” am only human and I laugh at everything. Laughter is good for the soul, so do it as much and as often as you can! Sometimes I crack myself up…oh I laugh at myself a lot! My kids think I’m nuts sometimes, but hey…if it as Sheryl Crow once sang; “If it Makes You Happy”

 I love the song but I have to ask and Sheryl wants to know?…Why the hell are you so sad? No one should be sad…It takes more muscles to frown that it does to smile! So listen; to all of you sad saps that need a good kick in the pants, and a strong dose of reality…. take it from me…a cancer survivor and a fighter…Life is what you make of it. Buck up little fellow it’s a winding road. No time to feel down and blue…be happy, unlike many, you’re still breathing. Life is good!

 After all….Humor is infectious. The sound of roaring laughter is far more contagious than any cough, sniffle, or sneeze. When laughter is shared, it binds people together and increases happiness and intimacy. In addition to the domino effect of joy and amusement, laughter also triggers healthy physical changes in the body. Humor and laughter strengthen your immune system, boost your energy, diminish pain, and protect you from the damaging effects of stress. Best of all, this priceless medicine is fun, free, and easy to use.

Laughter is a powerful antidote to stress, pain, and conflict.

 Nothing works faster or more dependably to bring your mind and body back into balance than a good laugh. Sometimes I laugh so hard I cry…like a few weeks ago when my friend Cindy came to visit me and we went to this dive bar and had a few too many…when it was time to leave I got into the wrong car…hey, in the dark, they all look the same! We laughed in the parking lot until I thought I was going to wet my pants.

 Humor lightens your burdens, inspires hopes, connects you to others, and keeps you grounded, focused, and alert.With so much power to heal and renew, the ability to laugh easily and frequently is a tremendous resource for surmounting problems, enhancing your relationships, and supporting both physical and emotional health.

In case you didn’t already know it:


  • Laughter relaxes the whole body. A good, hearty laugh relieves physical tension and stress, leaving your muscles relaxed for up to 45 minutes after.
  • Laughter boosts the immune system. Laughter decreases stress hormones and increases immune cells and infection-fighting antibodies, thus improving your resistance to disease.
  • Laughter triggers the release of endorphins, the body’s natural feel-good chemicals. Endorphins promote an overall sense of well-being and can even temporarily relieve pain.
  • Laughter protects the heart. Laughter improves the function of blood vessels and increases blood flow, which can help protect you against a heart attack and other cardiovascular problems.

  Here’s is what made me so silly….sometimes it’s something as little as this to make you sit back and really take notice that life is good, and only then do you realize that laughter is good for the soul!
