There are so many things in this world that can bring our mood down. The people we work with can be great one day and then frustrating the very next. School can seem to overwhelming that we feel there is no way to get out of it. And sometimes family and friends can seem so far away from us we don’t seem to agree on anything anymore.
With so many things bringing us down we need something that will help to lift our spirits and make everything all right again. One of the best ways that we can do this is through the fun of telling and sharing jokes. For some people this seems like such a trivial answer – but I believe that it is one of the best things that we could ever do.
Funny jokes have been around for centuries and it is unclear as to who cracked the first one. Unfortunately historians do not always thing that it is important enough to know how, when, and who came up with the first one or even who termed the word ‘joke’. But what we do know is they help each and everyone of us to laugh.
Laughing is one of the best things that we can do – but only when that laughter is pure and truly comes from the heart. Sometimes we laugh without actually knowing what people are talking about so we feel included. Other times we are laughing at someone – but this is not pure laughter. This is something that can hurt people.
Pure laughter is when we see or hear something that makes us laugh when we are feeling sad. Sometimes we are able to find stupid jokes that are so hilarious that we start to cry from how hard it makes us to shake with laughter. These are the ones that we share with others in the hopes that it will brighten their day also.
