Today is about being bullet proof
"If you can laugh in the face of adversity,
- Ricky Gervais
No one passes through this life unscathed. We all encounter obstacles and challenges. We all suffer pain in one form or another. Some of us have physical limitations, some of us experience emotional disturbances, some of us face mental challenges and others undergo crises of spirit.
Courage is born from adversity. It develops as we face our problems head on with honesty, kindness, and sometimes, humor. Laughter has the ability to bring us out of ourselves and our suffering. To reunite us with our joy and playfulness.
When we laugh, our bodies release endorphins, natural "feel-good" chemicals, which promote a sense of well-being and relieve pain. Laughter lowers blood pressure and stress hormone levels, which in turn decreases anxiety and improves our immune systems. Making us more robust and resilient, impervious to slings and arrows. However, I would still be careful around bullets :)
Wishing you a river of laughter running through your day!
Fly on, Superhero.
