Laughter (Day 003, #100DaysOfBlogging)

I’m doing #100DaysOfBlogging along with Reshmy. The theme for Day 3 of the writing adventure is Laughter.

Laughter Day 3

Laughter doesn’t always change what life throws at me. If it did, it would constitute a miracle. But laughter gives me hope. A smile makes me believe that what is going to happen can be survived. Or if it’s a good thing that is happening, that it can be celebrated.

There were people in my life who could douse that smile with their words. There still are a few I can’t get rid of. Trust me, I’ve tried. But they come with a tag that makes it impossible. They come gifting sorrows and anxieties that try to suck the happiness out of me. But thankfully, there are many who know how to bring that happiness back. I can be myself with them. They make me laugh. They cheer me on. And they bring out the craziness that lies dormant within me.

I’m thankful for those friends who make me feel that life is better when I am laughing.

Liked this? Maybe you can read some of my earlier posts: for 100 Days of Blogging (2018).

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
