Laughter is more than a smile and a fond memory. Laughter is fuel for hope. When we laugh, problems shrink and creativity flows. When we laugh, we see possibilities where we once saw only difficulties. Seek people and situations that make you laugh, and the parts of life that aren't funny will seem easier.

We think of forgiveness as something we give to another person. But the burden of being angry and disappointed weighs us down, eating away at our relationships and bringing pain to our days. Forgiveness is not a sign of weakness any more than anger is a sign of strength. Try to forgive if not for someone else, then for yourself.
