While I was at work today a co-worker of mine was asking my boss and I if when we wake up in the morning we coordinate what our shtick will be for the day. My boss and I are usually always laughing about something together or making everyone else in our office laugh. Our humors are fairly similar and we bounce stuff off each other really well. As I sat there laughing about what my co-worker was saying to me it made me think of the song “Make ’em Laugh” from Singin’ in the Rain. (For those unfamiliar, please see below video)
I’m not sure why this all popped into my head today, but I’ve realized that my other goal in life (besides reading 100 books a year) is to try to bring more laughter into people’s lives.
Audrey Hepburn who just so happens to be one of my favorite actresses said the following;
“I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it’s the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It’s probably the most important thing in a person. “
I find myself constantly being drawn to people who make me laugh. One of my best friends Adam makes me laugh ALL the time. When the two of us get together it’s usually a riot. We’ve been told that we should crash parties because we’re really funny. Being told I’m funny honestly boosts my confidence in a way nothing else can do. You can tell me I’m smart, confident, a good worker, etc, anything you want to, but nothing hits as close to home as being told I’m funny.
I know none of this has anything to do with reading, but I just wanted to share my other goal in life! This is after all a blog about reflections from a book addict. Maybe I should change the name to reflections of a laughing book addict?
