Explore the value of Laughter
Into each day, put in about one teaspoonful of good spirits, a dash of fun, a pinch of folly, a sprinkling of play, and a heaping cupful of good humor!
I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, It's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, And that enables you to laugh at life's realities.
Theodor Seuss Geisel
If you're going to be able to look back on something and laugh about it, you might as well laugh about it now.
A smile starts on the lips, A grin spreads to the eyes, A chuckle comes from the belly; But a good laugh bursts forth from the soul, Overflows, and bubbles all around.
Mary H. Waldrip
There is something more - the spirit, or the soul. I think that that quality encourages our courtesy and care and our minds. And mercy, and identity.
When you awaken love and laughter in your life, your mind lets go of fear and anxiety, and your happy spirit becomes the healing balm that transforms every aspect of your human experience.

Kaitlin StanleySubmitted by Clare Podczerwinski
My hero is my old babysitter, Kaitlin. She graduated from Ball State University. I sometimes still see her, but it is hard because she lives far away.

MOD PODSubmitted by Melissa
MOD POD wants to nominate our own leadership lab crew as our hero. Everyone in our lab came together not knowing each other or having very little exposure to one another.

They say that a smile says a thousand words and at times when you hear someone else you start to laugh too. This all happened without saying a word. Makes you stop and think doesn't it?
Laughter is sharing and caring and loving! So spread the love, care, and share a laugh with someone you know.
