stacy anne, canon 50d
This image of Stacy laughing has brought me so much joy today. Laughter always has. People who know me best, know that I am a giggler. Whether I am joyous or nervous or uncomfortable...and sometimes even when I am hurting. I tend to mock myself while in a mess of tears when I call a loved one or cuddle with them on the couch. I laugh at myself. Laugh and cry simultaneously.
I recall my best friend and I (during high school days) once got in an argument while staring in the mirror curling our hair. We had been besties for four years and had never once had a disagreement. So it was the first time we disagreed and lightly snapped at one another and not but a second later, we were cracking up at ourselves. Laughing until we fell to the floor holding our bellies. I knew then that I needed to surround myself with people that could laugh at themselves and laugh with me. Because that is what I do to survive and sustain joy in my life.
Tell me one thing that has brought joy into your life lately or something that has made you belly laugh good.
