Lighten Up

76. Lighten Up

There is an Irish proverb which says “A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures in the doctor’s book.” I believe that—plus the admonition to lighten up, but I have a hard time implementing both. I remember once driving back from Boston and listening to a cassette tape of the book, Anatomy of An Illness—As Perceived by the Patient by Norman Cousins. When Norman Cousins was faced with an incurable disease, he found a physician that worked with him in using humor, courage and tenacity to beat the odds. As I listened to the tape which had many humorous anecdotes, I found myself driving along and laughing uproariously. I still remember that event as being one of the times that I totally enjoyed the laughter.

A lot of the time, I get bogged down in seriousness, and forget that healing potion and how much fun it is.
