Last night as I watched tv I allowed myself to fully laugh. Usually I just chuckle at the silly antics of the characters but last night, snuggled in to my fiancé, I laughed fully. It felt great! It wasn't that I have been consciously holding in laughter and yet it was like on some level I was waiting for permission. Today I give myself permission to laugh whenever the urge arises. Today I give myself permission to not hold back, to let my laughs bubble up from my core. And today I give myself permission to be silly.
I'm so grateful for laughter. I'm grateful for the way it makes me feel inside and out. I'm grateful for the sound of my distinct laugh. I'm grateful to grant myself permission to not be so serious. I'm grateful for the weather contributing to the silliness. I'm grateful for a clever writer's character lines to give me another reason to let the laughter roll. And I'm grateful to know that I don't need a reason or permission to laugh whenever I want and need. I'm grateful for this action.
When was the last time you have a good, full, belly laugh? Are you waiting on permission to laugh? If so, now is a great time to give yourself that permission and start having a wonderful day! May your day be blessed with seeing all the silliness around you. May you find the strength to laugh off the little stresses of the day and live in joy. Have a beautiful day!
