LAUGHTER

My Dear Readers,
This post is specially made for you. I dedicate this post to you. I had you in mind all the while that I was composing this post. It is quite different from what you are used to, and I hope in this case that different is good. 

Today, I am going to be talking about something we all need as Humans, even some animals need it too. I’m talking about Laughter, Happiness, Love, Joy and Relaxation … the likes. I am aware that some of you have really busy schedules, I know that some of you are Doctors, Lecturers, Lawyers, Students, Business Men and Women, Engineers, Writers, Bloggers, Bankers, Teenagers, Elderly people and practically, almost everyone from all walks of life and You can only make out enough time to read my posts like what does Charis Black have to say? Well, I appreciate all the time and support, so Thank you.
My point is…  Everyone deserves to be happy, we all need to take a little break from all the seriousness and casualties of Life. Take a chill pill, Relax and lighten our hearts. And so I bring to you, some things that might just evoke some laughter from you. I hope this is worth it because I spent a lot of time and energy getting these materials all over the internet,  just for YOU.

Okay. So I begin…..

Laughter, they say is the best medicine. Laughter is used in therapeutic situations for its power to motivate, alleviate stress and pain, and improve one’s sense of well being. Charlie Chaplin affirmed that

a day without laughter is a day wasted

e.e cummings also concurs with Chaplin in his quote that says

the most wasted of all days is one without laughter

  and Pablo Neruda described laughter as

the language of the soul.

Life throws some really hard experiences and choices over our heads and these hard experiences hang over our heads like persistent dark clouds, bearing down on us and threatening to throw us into a prison of depression and anxiety, therefore causing a standstill in our life’s progress …And some people still wonder why bad things happen to them… That’s just Life. I know a lot of people are suffering from really tough and difficult situations and it seems like your whole world has some crashing down but the good news is that there is always a silver lining around every dark cloud. No matter how bad it gets, there is still hope for a change because even your worry won’t be able to change the situation… In fact, I have never heard of a situation where worry changed a situation except to make it worse… At least, if for nothing else, you are alive and that counts for something… Try telling a corpse to cheer up and laugh… But seriously, No condition is permanent. Things will always get better as long as you have the right attitude to life and you can only get the right attitude when you have the right information. So feed your mind with the right things.

Which brings us back to what we were talking about… Laughter.

Religion accepts it, Doctors write about it, Psychologists agree with it, Philosophers think about it, even Poets have composed poems about it. The idea of laughter as a healing balm in the lives of people going through one challenge or the other have proven to be true. In his collection of poems in “A Harvest of Laughters”, Remi Raji Oyelade, a renowned Nigerian poet, encapsulates laughter metaphorically in a poetic stream of words. Here are some thoughts about laughter from other Personalities.

If you want to tell people the truth,  make them laugh, otherwise they’ll kill you

– George  Bernard Shaw

If we couldn’t laugh,we would all go insane.

– Robert Frost

I know not all that may be coming but be it what it will, I’ll go to it laughing

– Herman Melville

Laughter and Tears are both responses to frustration and exhaustion. I myself prefer to laugh since there is less cleaning to do afterwards

– Kurt Vonnegut

I don’t trust anyone who doesn’t laugh

–  Maya Angelou

Whenever you find yourself thinking about that depressing, embarrassing and humiliating episode, look for something to make you laugh. Forget Alcohol, Weed or Hard drugs because they only make u forget for a while and afterwards, the depression comes back and it comes with such a force that it threatens to end your life as you know it. Surround yourself with materials, people, or things that make you laugh… I mean real laughter not those fake ones… When you do, the world becomes lighter and your problems don’t seem as devastating as you had earlier thought.
So, I have compiled a list of some jokes and comic pictures that got me cracking up and I hope you like them too and they make you laugh. If they are not funny to you then it means you don’t get it, go and find something else that would make you laugh.
It never hurts to be the reason for someone’s smile or laughter, rather it’s uplifting. It’s one of the best gifts we humans have.

So sit or stand back and laugh away your worries…

Please keep laughing and don’t let that situation weigh you down !!!

[KJV] Proverbs 17:22 A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.

A man fainted in front of Captain Cook Fast food in Osogbo, Yesterday morning. People rushed to him and someone said “bring some water and pour it on him.” the man opened his eyes and replied “if I needed water,I would have fainted in front of Osun State Water Corporation. Look at where I fainted and do the right thing”
