Daily Prompt – Change

Today’s daily prompt is: What change, big or small, would you like your blog to make in the world?”

It’s probably self explanatory by the name of my blog but the changes I’d like my blog to make on the world are small changes within people that could make big changes on the world.

  • Don’t take life so seriously, find the things that make you smile, giggle or die laughing and surround yourself with them.  This could be a funny friend, a trip to Wal-Mart (you know, you’ve all seen funny there), a giggling child or situation that makes you smile.
  • Create funny yourself, we’re all funny in our own way, find yours, it’s there, you just have to look for it.  Sometimes your funny is just to laugh at others.  For the love of God, don’t force it if you’re not actually that funny, there’s nothing worse than awkward moments when you hope to be funny and no one else thinks so.  I’ve been there, I know.
  • Don’t take yourself so seriously, when you learn to laugh at yourself  you’ll find others funny.  I took a good fall the other day on the sidewalk in front of three friends.  The toe of my hooker boot caught a rock and my top half got moving WAY faster than my bottom half.  It didn’t take me long to be laying on the sidewalk, face down.  All I could do was yell “MAN DOWN” and laugh hysterically.
  • Look for laugh lines and smiles that reach someone’s eyes.  Those people are great to be around, their laugh makes you laugh harder.

By surrounding yourself with funny, you’re adding years to your life and hopefully someone else’s life too.  A good attitude, a great laugh, a funny joke or comment can make someone’s day, in turn they will spread the wealth, guaranteed.

Can you imagine a world where everyone smiled and laughed, even a few more times a day?  Our jobs would be better, our shopping trips would be better, our relationships would be better.  Try it, you’ll  like it.  Life without humor is just life, life with humor is living.
