“A cheerful heart is good medicine..” Proverbs 17:22
Life should be fun and full of laughter. We all need a daily dose of laughter and joy. Adding some pleasure to your life is like taking pain medicine when you have a headache. It brings relief and normalcy back to your world. Everyone laughs when we are in a stressful meeting and someone makes an ironic mistake. Suddenly the room feels lighter. Or, when you watch an intense movie and the comic relief says or does something funny. Amazingly, the intensity seems bearable. Life can be heavy and draining, but add in a little joy and laughter and the whole world becomes a lot more bearable.
With the fearful strain that is on me night and day, if I did not laugh, I should die.
– Abraham Lincoln
