LAYERS OF LAUGHTER

COLOR UPON COLOR LAUGHTER TOUCHES OUR DAYS. (from poster 01003 found at maryanneradmacher.com)

Laughter is the element that holds my day together. And, more specifically, it is the very thing that holds ME together, regardless of the circumstances of my day. Here is a list I have compiled of 62 things. Doing any one of them likely results in laughter of some sort. And done one after another is just like an artist building color upon color. Vivid. Pick one. Let me know how it goes.

See a friend. Walk in a garden. Take a deep breath. Try something

new. Go a new way. Find out the name of a tree in your neighborhood.

Plant a tree if there isn’t one. Greet a stranger. Plant seeds. Watch the

weather. Wait. Believe. Make a gift. Post a card. Give a smile. Offer to

help. Appreciate a soldier. Play with a puppy. Stand in the wind. Walk

up a hill. Stretch. Wonder. Imagine. Clean your closet. Use a differ-

ent color pen. Use crayons. Dance. Sing a little song. Do the unex-

pected. Be extraordinary. Say yes to most things. Pretend it’s easy. Say

you’re sorry. Use a new spice. Laugh loudest. Be extraordinary. Try

it. Write something. Be original. Be well. Practice. Hop. Skip. Jump.

Kiss somebody. Be special. Imagine something. Tell a story. Listen.

Inspire. Be inspired. Swell with pride. Brag. Rearrange. Drive some-

where. Walk somewhere. Send a card. Visit a friend. Eat an apple. Be

grateful. Go ahead and weep for this never-to-be-seen-again moment.

Love as deeply as you can.
