Today is Friday. On the social media carousel, it is considered a day for posting humorous topics, slap-stick humor or anything to make the day fun. It is after all #fridayfunday.
The letter of the day is:
And today’s topic is how to improve our humor. Having a good sense of humor relieves stress, is a pain management skill, and just all around makes you a more enjoyable person to be with. So is there a method to improve humor?
Some may laugh at others, memorize a joke book, look for the humor in a situation or even just make an attempt to exercise their laugh lines every day. 🙂
Here is my numero uno proven method for humor: LEARN TO LAUGH AT YOURSELF
Case in Point ~
The other night, my husband and I were watching a movie. In the movie, the hero explained to the father the reason he knew he loved the heroine, his reason: “Nothing makes sense without her.” Sweet right?
Well, my husband looks at me, takes my hand, and says: “At least I have that in common with him – Nothing makes sense about you.” hahaha….
My husband mistook the words in the movie.
Rather than becoming offended, I took his little joke in stride. I admitted that nothing much makes sense about me to my husband, he had a right to find that funny, and better yet he got the words wrong.
Because I found humor in laughing at myself, we both chuckled over that one for the entire evening. I will never forget that movie or what is now a special moment!
