We Go Health Prompt: “If I could accomplish one thing (anything) in 2013 it would be…”Chato Stewart: [searching for his humor]Caption: To find and keep my sense of humorDay 29 of the National Health Blog Post Month of the blog party at We Go Health comes to a close with the bloggers participating by thinking about the future. “If I could accomplish one thing (anything) in 2013 what would it be? First off, I cannot believe it’s 2013!!! This cartoon above may be a little confusing to some of my regular readers, you may be thinking how can I lose my sense of humor? The truth is I am not a very happy person. Yes, that’s hard for me to say and even harder for me to write. That is why I truly believe in the power of humor as a coping mechanism and tool to keep balanced.
Laughter and laughing is like a muscle that needs to be moved and flexed and worked out to build up so you can keep using it. It is true that people can lose their sense of humor. Especially undergoing the trauma of mental health episodes. In 2013, I am going to work harder to find and keep my humor and to smile and laugh more…and that’s no joke!
