“I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it’s the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It’s probably the most important thing in a person.” ~ Audrey Hepburn
Laugh and Get Rich!
February 8th: Do you know what is significant about this day?
It is officially also known as “Laugh and Get Rich Day”!
If you are reading this on February 8th…LAUGH!!! Right now…let that laugh in you out!!
And, shoot — even if it’s not February 8th…LAUGH!!!
Ahhhh…doesn’t that feel AMAZING!!
Laugh and get rich! Okay, I’m not going to guarantee that by laughing you’ll become richer monetarily. I DO have a guarantee, though: Laugh and you WILL become richer.
Richer in your health
Richer in your relationships.
Richer in our well-being
…richer in your soul…
So, let’s all…
CELEBRATE!! (…and have a good time!)
Laugh and get rich!!!!
Perhaps you need some help to get those laughs coming (although I’m all for laughing for no reason at all, too!). Let me share a story with you.
Adventures in Travel
I recently spent several days in California (attending a conference and visiting some very amazing people). That’s not what I’m talking about today, though. I’m talking about my travels TO California.
I was flying form Milwaukee, WI to San Diego, CA…with a layover in Las Vegas, NV. The plane I was on was also the plane going on to San Diego (so I would not have to get off the plane in Las Vegas). When we landed in Las Vegas, every one of the other passengers exited the plane (seems as though all travelers EXCEPT me were on there way to Vegas, baby!). There was to be about a 45 minute layover before this plane would be leaving for San Diego. I chose to stay on the plane. So, it was just me and the stewardesses (and a guy restocking the kitchen area) on the plane.
NOTE: The next part may contain TOO MUCH INFORMATION (you’ve been warned!)
This stopping point also seemed like a good place to visit the airplane lavatory (because, well…too much coffee and water…). So, I wandered to the back of the plane to use the restroom.
I squeezed into the small room, locked the door, and began to unzip.
At that moment (mid-zip), one of the stewardesses got on the intercom and said, “To the gentleman who just went into the restroom.…HANG ON!!!!!”. (said with conviction!)
…let me just say…
FREAKY!!!!! (and…it’s a good thing I was in the restroom!!!)
She then continued to talk to me, over the intercom, while I used the restroom (the WHOLE time I was in there!).
Why? Just for fun!!! Just because she had never done that before. Just because…
How cool is that!!! (well…after you get over the freaky-ness of it all!) And the thing was, after that restroom “incident”, there was an instant connection between myself and both of the stewardesses. That moment created connection (…as weird as that “moment” sounds…). That moment created a space for friendship, however brief, to begin…
In case you are wondering…and I’m glad to share — the airline was Southwest Airlines…which, from my experience, their employees have a whole lot of fun at their work!!
So there you have it — your LAUGH for today!
Now…go out and laugh even more!!
Richness (beyond measure and in so many ways) awaits!
To those of you with inquiring minds, I know of this very special day (February 8th), from a calendar I received this year…that has something to celebrate every day of the year!
A couple of good ones coming up:
February 19th: Chocolate Mint Day! (yum!!)
March 18th: Awkward Moments Day (wow…who knew I could have just saved these moments all up for just one day each year!)
