Last night I had the interesting experience of attending a “Laughter Yoga Party”. Have you ever heard of this? It’s a bunch of people you’ve never met, standing around acting goofy and laughing at each other. It’s so weird. I seriously felt like I was on Romper Room. Seeing a bunch of fully-grown adults act like children, and after each exercise, we had to clap twice and say, GOOD JOB, GOOD JOB, YAAAAY!
While it was pretty strange, I have to say it was a good time. I went with one of my funniest friends, and we kept looking at each other and cracking up for real.
One thing that was really cool was at the end, we formed two lines, facing each other. Each person had a turn walking through the lines, and as they went, each member of the group whispered something nice into their ear. There was a lot of, you have a beautiful smile, you have a good energy, you have a great laugh, etc. A few people even teared up as they were hearing their compliments. It was really very sweet to see adults treating each other (complete strangers) with care and kindness. I think that kind of thing should happen to everyone, regularly.
Enjoy this beautiful July day.
