Like a welcome summer rain, humor may suddenly cleanse and cool the earth, the air and you.

Langston Hughes

It is all in the smile...

Humor is contagious. Laughter is infectious. Both are good for your health. 

 William Fry

There is nothing like a SMILE.  I like writing about smiling and laughter often because I know the positive benefits they can bring to your life.  Having a good sense of humor doesn’t simply make you a more pleasant person to socialize with; it can help you get more done and even save your sanity.  

So go ahead: Smile.

Having a good sense of humor can make you more resilient.  It has been scientifically proven that laughter causes positive reactions in the human body; it relieves stress and muscle tension, increases the release of endorphins and dopamine which are chemicals that make you feel good and promote general feelings of well being.

Smile a while and give your face a rest…

When it comes to finding constructive ways of dealing with fear, there is hardly anything more effective than having a good old laugh. This is because it is impossible to laugh at something and be afraid of it at the same time. 

A smile is the light in your window that tells others that there is a caring, sharing person inside.

Denis Waitley

It's been record breaking hot here in Ohio, Sitting in the shade to day and smiling. Summer does have the power to make us suffer and like it.

I like that quote that worry takes away our peace for today. That is so true. Worrying sure doesn't cause one to smile! It is always good to laugh and to share a smile with those around us.

I've spent a large part of the day butting heads with a government agency, trying to prove I am who I am. Soooo frustrating. Perhaps I should consider the ABSURDITY of the situation and just have a good old belly laugh?

Chatty is right of course, I love it when someone I do not know takes the time to smile in my direction. Yep it is infectious.
