I don’t like the taste of coffee, yet I drink it every morning. Not a full cup, just a few gulps of the steamy liquid. From childhood, my family rallied around that first cup. It’s my husband and son’s favorite thirst quencher, but hardly mine. Why sip the strong brew? My best answer is: It is readily available and has become habit. I could say it warms me, enhances my mood, or gives me a boost of energy, but those are someone else’s beliefs. I’ve only heard them forty years. How many other activities do I engage in out of reflex? Probably many. In my quest to become happy, I found meditation. Many say the goal of meditation is no thought. I am happy to notice that it’s ALL thought and allow the unhelpful ideas to float away like a balloon. To create habits, there must be intent and initiative. In the beginning, laughing for the sake of laughing was foreign, uncomfortable, and difficult. However, there was an immediately noticeable effect. Eventually it has become my habit to laugh first, then address the situation. A good laugh does for me what coffee does for others; energizes, re-calibrates, provides space for meditation, and fuels my intention for a day filled with ease, and getting stuff done!
The more he practiced, the better he got, and he sure did giggle and laugh a lot.
