Sometimes life gets tough and you forget to laugh at all the little things, even yourself. Joan Rivers was no stranger to laughter. In one of her famous quotes she states, “never be afraid to laugh at yourself, after all, you could be missing out on the joke of the century.”
Joan Rivers did not know any boundaries when it came to her jokes, especially when it came to other celebrities. She knew that she was not exempt from being laughed at as well. She was her harshest critic and never failed to maker herself the butt of her own jokes .
Joan Rivers reminds me that your attitude can make all the difference. There have been many mornings where I have forgotten something or poured coffee on my clothes. I didn’t always laugh, but the times that I did made my morning outlook a lot more positive.
So take a step back when you think you are having a bad day and find something to laugh about. This can be a funny picture, a memory, or laughing at yourself for some silly mistake you made earlier.
