The most wasted day is that in which we have not laughed. --Chamfort
When we are adrift in our dysfuntions, we take ourselves very seriously and often lose contact with reality. We become lost in fantasy and obsession. Life becomes joyless because we can't see beyond our dysfuntions and we find no real satisfaction there. We lose touch with the joy and humor of life, and we find that everything around us and inside us is grim and dark.
One of the many positive signs of our return to health and sanity is our re-discovery of the gift of laughter. Each day as we gain more energy and zest of life, we move in to the world and find many things that are humorous, in ourselves and in other people. We laugh and find we are no longer alone.
Laughter is the mark of a healthy, happy human being. Laughter shows that we are truly a part of the human community. It is a sign that we are alive and on the way to our true selves.
I am glad that I can laugh again and feel in touch with myself and others.
