The most wasted of all days
is that on which one has not laughed.
~ Sebastien-Roch Nicolas de Chamfort
What is the point of laughing? Laughter changes our body chemistry, makes us feel young again, and transforms relationships. It is very hard to be in conflict with someone who makes you laugh. They go from being your enemy to being a friend, even if you still question their sanity and behavior.
Why do tears become a part of laughter when the laughter is really uncontrolled? I think whether we laugh or cry, tears are a healing release and wash away our troubles. The more we store within us, and the less we react, the more harm we do to our bodies. Tears of any kind cleanse the soul.
Cry your tears of joy and sorrow and help your body to heal by eliminating the poisons that reside within.
