Finding the Humor

Written By: JoJoisms - Mar• 21•17

After my last surgery, my brain came home to roost.  I’m able to do things now like remember my last name and why I walked into a room…more than I used to.  It’s also afforded me the opportunity to write some new JoJoisms.  Here’s one.  

Since so many of my readers are in the same boat as I am, I thought I’d talk about how we can all find the humor in whatever situation we find ourselves.  It’s not a long post this week, but it is a significant one.  This is how I do it. Maybe it’ll help you too.

No matter what comes up to hit me in the face or pokes me from behind, my first thought is: “I don’t know how that happened or why, but there’s got to be a joke in there somewhere!”  If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em!  It’s that kind of thing.  So I live believing that all the bad stuff that happens is just fodder for my comedy that I share on my blog and other social media.

An idea hit me just before I wrote the above JoJoism (which brain fog prevented me from numbering).  Someone asked me what the story of my life would be called and my brain went there.  It’s how I keep from losing my mind when everything around me brings me knee deep in pain, fatigue, and/or financial stress.

I leave you with this thought.  If I can do it, you can too.  So I challenge you to turn something hard you are going through around.  See the funny, sunny side.  “A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.” Proverbs 17:22

What does that look like for you?

    This is a great way to view the world. If you can’t laugh at yourself your being too serious !

    Finding the humor definitely makes things more bearable. I tell my kids that most of the challenges make for better stories later. They’re the ones we tell again and again!
