We often take life a little too seriously. We forget to step back and laugh, and most importantly we forget to laugh at ourselves. Being able to laugh at ones self is an important key to loving and accepting yourself. It helps us to understand that deep down we are all rather silly. No one is perfect, and everyone is capable of looking foolish.
Everyone that was at our Conversation Tables was able to come up with a moment in their life when they seemed to be completely foolish but where able to surpass the embarrassment by laughing along with everyone else. Laughter is a universal language. We all do it, and we all know what it means. It is infections and spreads from our inner core bubbling up in an explosion of joy produced by a willingness to be free. This willingness to be free helps to be non-judgmental, the laughter we have for other people comes from a positive place. It is also important to remember the moments in which you laughed at yourself. Being able to look back at moments in your life and laugh is a great gift. Sometimes it takes time for you to open up to the humor of a past moment, it becomes a therapeutic sense of relief to let out a chuckle.
Here at The Red Victorian we encourage you to laugh at yourself everyday, and enjoy laughing at yourself. Everyone is funny. Life is funny.
