I really enjoy sharing different approaches and perspectives about finding our Middle Ground. Recently humour or humor has been a theme … You know who you are!
It’s no coincidence that, as I am going through some changes, I experience feelings of sadness and loss … and then that humor bubbles up!
Humor brings light and lightness. Its takes us away from our thinking, stories, and beliefs about the world. It activates different parts of our brains and releases serotonin and yummy hormones!
Its also one of the ways that we may avoid facing reality. Yet when we are aware and recognize this, we see its okay … just like one espresso and piece/bar of chocolate now and again is okay 😉
Living a comedic life would be living a life avoiding the highs and lows that are a part of it.
However, having a humor pause may be just as helpful as a sacred pause.
So give yourself permission:
To laugh in the face of adversity.
To giggle in those awkward moments.
To smile when things seem lost.
Recall the good times and laughter when someone is dying.
Guffaw at the ridiculous-ness you find yourself in.
And choose to laugh because it feels so good!
It’s all okay 🙂
No one need tell us how we should be feeling. Its up to all of us to find a way to feel fully and therefore live fully.
After all, life is serious enough without taking it too seriously all the time!
