He Who Laughs

We can be times in our life where nothing goes right. There doesn't appear to be any end to our condition. This is when it is so easy to give up. We are on the brink of depression or worse.

This is when there is only one hope to cling to. The knowledge that all things pass. Happiness, sadness, despair, joy and all emotions have been and will continue to rise and fall depending on conditions that are beyond our control.

In time conditions will change and bring new opportunities as it always has. Nothing is static in this world. Life by it's nature is dynamic and constantly adapting to change. That is why all things will pass.

When we have hit bottom and feel we are at the bottom of the well looking up and seeing no way out we face our greatest challenge. Accepting our reality as it is without apology or excuse we wait for the change we know will come and be ready.

We need to be a person who dares laugh. For to laugh is to dare, because laughter dares fate and sorrow and the weight of all injustices. When we laugh we change how we are dealing with our situation. We are now in charge rather than being a victim.

The only control we have kds_npl in life is how we feel about things. If we handle our feelings then we change our outlook

So true. I was personally referred to you by "comedy +." Sandy seems to think that we can hit it off.
First, I love your site; both laughter and truth. My site is “Dedicated to the Pursuit, Capture, Care & Feeding of a Positive Mental Attitude.” Laughter is a key component to this end. I have zero adds on my site. I feel that what I have to say has universal significance. http://mondaymorningpower,
look at the comment from "comedy +" on my "Trail of Joy" post. Let me know if you would be interested in some link-love.
