I’m going to get by with a little bit of laughter

What’s a secret skill or ability you have or wish you had?

It’s actually not too much of a secret. I laugh a lot. I bring mirth and jokes to most instances. I like to be jolly. Yet, I’m also a curmudgeon. Can’t help it. I’m a New Yorker. A sunny curmudgeon. I openly claim such a title.

Now, what is a secret is how I manage to laugh in most instances. I often joke. If it weren’t for laughter, I’d be crying. It’s a joke. But as we know, every joke has a grain of truth to it.

My secret skill is my ability to still put a smile on what would rather be a frown. Actually, I’d rather smile than frown. Frowning causes wrinkles. Frowning creates a sad biofeedback loop. Thus, I may, at times, will myself into a smile and into causing me to have a moment of levity.

Even at the recent memorial I held, I was able to smile and laugh. Because laughter is power. And, even sad moments can bring about memories in which there were good times. And, we should allow ourselves to float in those memories and help bring comfort to others as well.
