My life is a comedy. Which sucks since I don’t even like comedies. Which means, life tends to go a different way than I expect it to. Now, the funny thing is that I can just see God up there watching and laughing at the irony of the whole picture of my world which is somewhat of a comic that you just can’t resist to laugh at… even when its you.
This is why, you’ve got to learn how to laugh at yourself. At least that’s what I’ve been telling myself over the years.
My main focus this week has been on approach. The reason I chose that route to follow was because it is such a powerful word. According to english-test.net the definition of approach (noun) is: access; method; system; procedure. It is the way you go about doing something, and the path you choose to follow.
You can choose to be embarrassed in an awkward situation or simply laugh at yourself and take the stress off of the situation. Chances are that people will join in and laugh with you. Now aren’t you happy you made all those people smile?
This is why I feel it is necessary that you learn early on that the moments when you don’t know what to say, and how to say it. A smile alone could save the moment. When you know how to laugh at yourself then you’ve gained a lesson that many people have a hard time facing. Sometimes it’s a more serious situation where it could be vital for whatever reason and you need an escape route. Be two steps ahead of the crowd. You laugh first. People join in.
In closing, a wise man once said laughter is the best medicine.
