For this week’s Divine Secrets of the Blah Blah Bloggerhood we are supposed to write about what we love most about ourselves. This makes me feel a bit awkward because I think all of us are most critical of ourselves and forget to be aware and appreciative of what is good in us.
I think my favorite thing about myself is my sense of humor. Anyone that knows me knows I am constantly being weird and cracking jokes. I tend to do it at unexpected times too. Shock value adds a lot to the mix so I generally toss a little of that in. It makes me very happy when I can make other people laugh and distract them from their daily problems. I think being a bartender really instilled this in me. Sometimes people would come sit at my bar after they got off work and you could see the weary, worn down look on their face. After a few minutes I would have them laughing. It always makes me feel good to lighten up someone’s day.
For me personally, I know if I am laughing my whole days seems to go smoother. I believe bringing laughter to others is healing for everyone. It relaxes you, it makes all your happy biochemicals flow, and helps release daily tension. I have been called a childish clown on a number of occasions and my only response is “thank you”. I am blessed and thankful that I was given this strange mind to be able to see and laugh about the humorous things in life. I am also thankful for the other childish clowns in my life that bring happiness to me.
