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.
Happiness requires action. Perhaps someone exists in perfect contentment, impervious to the world’s woes, but that isn’t me. I am a responsive being. I react to situations. I have also come to believe my happiness is independent of the will and welfare of others. Accepting my own free will, I understand that I am able to choose how to feel about events. Patterns and programming have taught me a repertoire of responses. Whether these are positive or negative feelings is largely a memory I’ve attached to specific variables. For instance, if I find out I have been lied to, it may be in my best interest to feel compassion, but it may be in my programming to be offended. From that offense, I may choose an action that will feel either good or bad. This set of events (action, response, reaction) continues until a choice to proceed differently is made. If I am bent on deliberate creation of my own happiness, I begin to process offense in new ways. I may value peace, thus choosing immediate forgiveness. I may let go of my expectations and see them as they are, coming from a place of unhappiness. Consistently, deliberately choosing to feel good becomes the new norm. There is never a good reason to stay in a state of bad feeling.
