Sounds of Laughter
Life may not be easy, but we can be kinder to ourselves and others and try to find the positive, good things in our world.
Linda Commito

Today I heard laughter—my own—and it was at myself. I was saying to my partner: “I don’t need to watch the news incessantly. All I need are the headlights.” We both laughed and it felt good.

I’ve been making “funny mistakes” lately . . . like trying to get onto a Zoom baby shower party, only to learn that I had the date wrong . . . by two weeks! Or having my mat and blocks all set up for a zoom yoga class, waiting for the teacher to let me in . . . but I was too early—by 24 hours! How about mistyping my name so often that I’ve thought about changing it to Lidna!

I could blame COVID-19 or chemo brain or stress or aging . . . and perhaps they each play a part in creating some anxiety in my life, but I choose to just laugh it off and to do the things that bring calm, joy, and peace into my world.
