Laugh Through It

Humor can help you cope with the unbearable so that you can stay on the bright side of things until the bright side actually comes along. – Allen Klein

Some of the best advice I’ve ever been given is to laugh through it.  Laugh through the bad times, and through the sad times, and of course through the good times.  They, whomever they are, say that laughter is the best medicine, and they are right.

Laughing can get you through some really troublesome times, and can bolster you up and give you the strength to come out on the other side. When I was in my early twenties, my dad passed away rather unexpectedly. It was of course a really horrible time. At the cemetery, the bugler was playing taps. They did the twenty-one gun salute, and were preparing to fold the flag.  We were standing there, my mom, my little sister, and I, crying when suddenly, my mother’s tummy gurgled loud enough for the three of us to hear.  One by one we started to giggle – softly at first, but the more we tried to control it, the louder we got.  Inappropriate?  Maybe, but honestly, it got us through a terribly traumatic time and made the rest of the day, and the days to come that much easier to deal with.

Try it.  The next time you’re struggling emotionally, mentally or physically, find something that tickles your funny bone and laugh through it.  Laugh through it and keep on laughing until you come out on the other side where things are better.
