Thanksgiving 2021: Unbridled Laughter

 

If you look up the word unbridled, it means unrestrained or uncontrolled. That type of humor is best served, any time, any where and can send anyone's down mood in an upward direction!

 

From a very young age, the ability to laugh has carried me through some difficult times. Laughter keeps me grounded and feels good! It is easy to tell if someone has a great sense of humor.

 

 

A laugh can elevate the senses and make a dreary day a little brighter. Of course, knowing when to laugh or hold back is crucial! Snickering during a serious occasion can be found in bad taste.

 

Laughter reduces stress levels, boosts moods and often can be an ice breaker in uncomfortable situations. Having a stressful day? Stop and think of something funny and let yourself go! 

 

  • One time, when dropping my car off to get the tires replaced at a local shop, my husband stopped by the front door in the parking lot. I ran out, jumped in, looked over to say hello. It was not him!

The truck was identical to the color, model and year, including the side step bars. I said, "You're not my husband!" He said, "I could be!" We both had a good laugh as I saw my husband pull in...

 

  • Wanting to impress a potential buyer on the phone, I needed to look up some real estate information on a specific subdivision. Instead of saying, "Can I put you on hold?" I blurted, "Can I hold you?"

He said, "I don't even know you." We burst into raucous laughter, I was full on crying and my stomach hurt. He ended up being a repeat client and I still chuckle at that first conversation.

 

  • While out, driving an out-of-state buyer couple around the southern Utah area, we were exhausting available inventory that fit their criteria. We had looked at multiple properties in two days.

I asked about 55+ communities. He said, "If we were of age, it could be a possibility, ask us again in a few years." Crickets...then hysterical giggles all around (they were 55+). 

 

 

Laughter is also good for the heart, releasing endorphins into the body, elevating thought processes. Besides, some parts of life are taken a little less seriously when we can laugh at ourselves.

 

My husband and I go to clubs to be entertained by comedians who know how to hit the funny bone. They achieve that goal and we leave refreshed, smiling, tittering through the rest of the evening!

 

 

Am so thankful for positive, upbeat people who enjoy engaging in laughter. It often helps to create and enrich relationships and comes highly rated with zero side effects, except maybe, sore abs. LOL

Hello Wanda - whether it's hee-hawing, some other hi-jinks or just some high spirited(but nice) horsing around --- regular laughter should be encouraged.

Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can! Laughter is so underrated. I was a very serious kid and young adult. It was stressful. I had to teach myself to let go. Now I laugh at so many things including myself and it feels great! I also think it puts people at ease. 

The reels that stop me every time on Instagram are the ones of babies laughing. There's nothing like a baby's laugh.

By the way, I almost got into someone's car by mistake the other day. My car is at the body shop and my neighbor dropped me off for my haircut and picked me up. I had text her to let her know I was done, I was waiting when I saw a white SUV pull up. I immediately jumped up and walked toward the passenger side when I looked up to see a man looking at me wondering what I was doing. I laughed but I don't think he got a kick out of it.

I hope you find something great to laugh about today!

Every day brings opportunities to belly laugh, even if it is self-depracating Michael Jacobs. I am well aware of my shortcomings and have learned to embrace that part, in a good way of course!

Life is meant to be enjoyed and I am happier when taking some things less seriously Carla Freund. Not everything needs a stern attitude!

Oh my gosh, I laughed out loud at your husband story, Wanda! That is something I would do!

As for laughter - it's a requirement in my home. My hubby will replay things that we watch just to see me laugh until I cry with tears running down my face and can't speak from all of the laughter! I've heard a lot of people say they cry easily - well, I laugh SUPER easily and love every minute of it. 

I will confess to getting tickled at a funeral one time. The minister knew my friend very well as they had been on several mission trips together. He told a story about a 'tour guide' in Turkey and it was SO fitting of my friend that I could not stop laughing! I almost had to get up and leave!

Thank you for sharing - love the photos too, Wanda.

My little sister, Theresa and I would be talking on the phone or visiting one another and whether she said something that set me off or vice versa, we'd be laughing so hard until we could pull ourselves together and then go again! Everyone would be wondering what was so funny. I miss her so much, we were supposed to grow old together.

Enjoying the moment is so very important and we do try to do that Debe Maxwell, CRS . You and Ray live to the fullest and laugh often too!

My husband and I went to a friend's birthday party last night, the laughs came easy and were plentiful, Kathy Streib. Not to mention, the karaoke was fun to watch and listen to as well!
