Love for Laughter

“A smile starts on the lips, a grin spreads to the eyes, a chuckle comes from the belly; but a good laugh bursts forth from the soul, overflows, and bubbles all around.” ~ Carolyn Birmingham

“If you become silent after your laughter, one day you will hear God also laughing, you will hear the whole existence laughing — trees and stones and stars with you.” ~ Osho

“At the height of laughter, the universe is flung into a kaleidoscope of new possibilities.” ~ Jean Houston

“Laughter is the shortest distance between two people.”  ~ Victor Borge

“Let your heart be merry.”  ~ Judges 19:6

“The seven wonders of the world: to see, to hear, to touch, to taste, to feel, to laugh, to love.”  ~ Unknown

“We don’t laugh because we’re happy, we are happy because we laugh.” ~ William James

I am a huge fan of laughing! Those who know me, know the high pitched hysterical ‘leave-everything-aside-let’s-laugh’ kinda laugh I so often go into! 😀
I have been blessed to find myself a bunch of people who share my love of being happy! It’s not that we haven’t fought, been hurt, or get angry… what matters is that despite all that we go through, we make time to laugh…to smile… 🙂
“Most smiles are started by another smile.”
Journalists of Joy is my effort to bring my attention on a daily basis to the joy that my life is brimming with… whether it is a quaint little flower blooming out of nowhere…or a richly textured leaf… a yummy cup of chai…or a healthy helping of my favourite street food… I make sure that each day is filled with countless such moments of observing and appreciating the joy of it all!
“Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.” ~ Anne Frank
I am dedicating this post to Journalists of Joy, everyone who is a part of my journey of joy on a daily basis in physical world and on social media, those of you who so generously come forward to be a part of my moments, everyone who remember me in their moments of joy and so lovingly share them with me… to everyone in the pictures below and those who are not… I love you. Thank you for these moments of laughter and being so close to my life and my heart!
 “The best way to cheer yourself is to try to cheer someone else up.” ~ Mark Twain
Being a weekend, let’s make time today to laugh! Share a joke, a limerick, an incident, make yourself and others around you laugh! However tough things may be, there is ALWAYS room for laughter 😀 One just has to find it!

“I will follow the upward road today;

I will keep my face to the light.

I will think high thoughts as I go my way;

I will do what I know is right.

I will look for the flowers by the side of the road;

I will laugh and love and be strong.

I will try to lighten another’s load this day as I fare along.”

~ Mary S. Edgar
