Taking Laughter’s Medicine

I once heard a profound quote: Love makes the world go around, but it’s laughter that keeps us from getting dizzy.

Many people living today take life too seriously. As a
result he or she can grow sick of the stresses and circumstances that one may
encounter during a lifetime. Laughter is like a cheap medicine. It eases our
tensions and makes us feel everything will work out fine. Laughter is a gift we
can give to ourselves and to others.

cartoonist Charles Schultz is a man who helped people learn to laugh through
his comic strip, Peanuts. Although
Schultz encountered tremendous difficulties in life, he continued to make his
audience laugh at their mistakes. He discovered a secret that helped people
persevere through their mistakes and failures. The secret was to learn to laugh
at themselves. “If I were given the opportunity to present a gift to the
next generation, it would be the ability for each individual to learn to laugh
at himself.”

Think about all the mistakes and failures you
have made. Now, remember how six months later you were able to
laugh at those mistakes. Life is not always perfect. Use Schultz’s idea to create a great future. Give yourself a gift. Give that gift to others. Now is a good time
to laugh your way into a great future.
