Misty Barron believes the most positive way to deal with the challenges and pains of this world is through hearty laughter. She is a testament to the healing power of laughter, using it to transform body, mind and spirit. As a licensed specialist in school psychology, Misty evaluated the emotional and behavioral needs of school children for many years until an accident took her livelihood, and almost took her life. Throwing off the shackles of seriousness and turning to laughter yoga for healing, Misty has seen the might of mirth. She is now a grandmother of three who travels the world speaking and teaching. Her passion is in helping others heal from their hurts. Misty’s books, as well as her life, are filled with fun and the frolicking of youthful times.
This won't be a sad piece, even though its topic is grief.
Six months ago, my mom passed. Time ran out; she ran out of gas.
Getting up today was no easy task. Except it only need last, a long moment.
Reach for the better feeling thought. I miss her. But, she isn’t lost.
I played her sweet tune. I swayed and I crooned. On repeat, and then,
I went outside to hoot and holler about all the good things I still have that matter.
Being thankful and saying aloud how this moment is new, filled with good things for me and you,
then naming them off one by one: the bed, the sheets, the pillow, electric, water, and sun.
I started to feel better. My focus got wider. Next on my path, I sat down to laugh, ten minutes of
intentional ho-ho, he-he, ha-ha. I cried as I laughed, but then I felt lighter.
It’s good to let emotion out. I can cry and laugh harder.
Laughing washes the bad feelings away; I can enjoy this new day.
It is fun to snuffle and shout. This is the better feeling route.
Even though I miss mom so --- grief, sadness, heartache have a new ring.
I can be present with pain and choose to laugh anyway, despite anything.
