Have you ever felt really low and then felt better after being around someone winsome and positive?  Or have you ever been brought down low by someone negative?  You’ve probably heard the saying, “Laughter is the best medicine.”  It is synonymous with the first part of Proverbs 17:22, “A merry heart doeth good like a medicine.”  An Irish proverb says, “A good laugh and a long sleep are the two best cures for anything.”  Sandra Galati, a fellow blogger wrote, “A troubled mind begs the attention of a hopeful heart.”  We can be the medicine that someone else needs.  Heard any good jokes lately?

Andrew Carnegie said, “There is little success where there is little laughter.”  I’m sure you’ve experienced working with people who were always too serious and rarely laughed, made working a drudgery and brought everyone down.  But people who are responsible and have fun and laugh together make work more enjoyable and successful.  So if you tend to be too serious, lighten up!
