Laughter and Love

Laughter heals.

Act like a kid today and laugh at yourself.

When was the last time you got in touch with your inner child and let them out to play?

Your body can’t produce stress hormones if you’re laughing.

  1. Looking at the past year… between COVID and various political movements… I see that people desire to be afraid. Oh, it doesn’t feel good, but there seems to be something in people that refuses to let fear go. Protection perhaps? Dunno, but those thick walls we build up to protect ourselves look as if they’re prison walls…


    1. I don’t understand why so many people choose to be afraid. I believe a huge part of the fear and anger in society arises from unaddressed grief. I believe it’s our current pandemic. Too many people don’t want to admit they are sad and suffering some sort of loss, whether it’s death or more ambiguous and permeating loss such as loss of security, health and normalcy. Our society too often teaches us it is better, even healthy, to appear strong and impervious. But denying our body, ourselves to feel all our emotions leads us to feeling overwhelmed, which makes us afraid. And being afraid makes us angry and isolated.
