Fitting In – LOL

yellow hat head circle cropWe often see and are told we are different, weird, nerdy, geeky, “too much” and so forth.  This leads to trying to fit in, dumbing down, being mediocre, or being the “class clown”.  We either try to hide our differences or use them in humorous ways, both to be included.

We get a lot of laughter when we are being silly, goofing off, or entertaining.  The saying goes that a good comedian and clown know the pain and share it for others to laugh as they have been there too.

However, as we increase our awareness and understanding of who we are and what our needs are, we can have the last laugh.  We can laugh at ourselves for our ways, our goofs, and our overexcitabilities and know that is real.  We recognize the reality of us and the joy that brings to us.  To know we have these remarkable, albeit weird and different, characteristics and talents that can be expressed for our own and others benefit brings glee.

Look in the mirror.  You are different.  You are unique.  You are stupendous.  You are a magnificent creature with tremendous potential.

Smile, grin, snicker, giggle, laugh out loud, enjoy lots of laughs, love ourselves with laughter, and embrace the love of laughter – LOL.
