A Joyful Outlook
"On with the dance, let the joy be unconfined!'
is my motto, whether there's any dance to dance or any joy to unconfine."
One of my favorite things to do is speak to audiences about Humor for the Health of It. I use a suitcase full of props, including my rubber chicken collection, to demonstrate just how easy it is to put more laughter in our lives. At one point I tell the audience to laugh. They look at me dumbfounded because I haven't said anything funny. Then a few snickers begin, and soon the whole room is belly laughing. Hummor puts people at ease and brings us together; a bitter, cynical, negative attitude just pushes people farther away.
TODAY I WILL KEEP SMILLING, NO MATTER WHAT. A POSITIVE OUTLOOK IS GOOD FOR MY HEALTH AND WELL-BEING, AND YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN SOMETHING WONDERFUL IS AROUND THE CORNER.
