~~My dentist told me I needed a crown, and I'm like "I know, right?!!"~~ Unknown
So when was the last time you laughed? When was the last time you felt joy in your heart and lightness in your step? It's so easy to sink into the blahs, especially when you quit smoking and feel like nothing is quite right in your world anymore.
So please pay attention to how you feel. If everything seems to be dark, dreary, and flat, it's time to shake it off and search for a release. Now, you may not be a chuckle kind of person. You may not be a belly laugh kind of person. But that doesn't mean you can't find a way to feel some positive emotions! Watch a sit-com, share memories with a friend, listen to happy music, google "silly quotes", or just watch a child as they always find fascinating things to do :)
Being happy isn't just for others and finding some delight in your quit isn't just for elders and feeling a lift in your spirits isn't just for Pollyanas. We all need laughter and joy and happiness as much as we need air and water and sunshine.
So rather than watch others have fun, why don't you take the plunge? Let go, let loose, and let life take you on a getaway!! Grab your spouse or your best friend or your grandchild...or go it alone!...and get silly. Giggle. Be outrageous. Dance. Laugh. Prank.
And enjoy. Really, really have moments of sheer enjoyment. Your brain needs it. Your body needs it. And your heart needs it. Fun, enthusiasm, excitement...all things that will bring a smile to your lips and happiness to your soul and energy to your life.
I myself am off to find that crown......
