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.
Her husband gave her initiative a nod. She lives with the biggest bully to presently walk the Western Hemisphere, but you will never see her complaining. She is stoic; trained to only display emotion when it serves a purpose. I am nothing like her. My vessel is open. My container is light. I’ve come to know the lesson she portrays though. There is a price to being open and authentic, but the cost becomes the power. I find her a curiosity. Her hands are completely tied by the master of her domicile, yet she serves a most glorious purpose - that of sit still and look pretty. In that way, her life is an important throwback to the times when we felt powerless. She is beautiful. She commands servants. She lives a life of luxury. Is she happy? Even the smile that came with her husband’s nod to her wishful platform was calculated and rehearsed. She is a brilliant example of how to ignore the bully so that they may turn their tongue toward others. Yet, is she from whom you wish to take lessons in happiness? That depends. What does happiness look like to you? Start there. Find what feels good to you. For me it is organic, spontaneous, intense, hearty laughter. Through laughter practice, joy shows in me.
The more he practiced, the better he got, and he sure did giggle and laugh a lot.
