Sometimes it just doesn’t happen for me naturally. I’m used to the energy just flowing out of me, but sometimes I can’t find it. The colors get muted. The lights go out. It doesn’t happen and it’s hard.
I suffer from emotional hangovers, just like everyone else,and when that happens I’ve got to work at it. I feel so much I get lost in emotion and trying to find the funny seems impossible when I can’t find my laugh. Sometimes it even causes writing sabbaticals, but I’ve found that Josh and Paul helped me get back on track.
When I can’t find the laughter I look for it outside. Josh Gad and Paul Rudd helped me break through the clouds.
After piercing through, I remembered … I don’t live there … I have these dark moments, but I don’t live there. Laughter broke the spell and I found pieces of me trickling back into place.
I flipped the switch and found the trust. I trusted that I was better than the moment I was stuck in, and I was able to turn it around.
The day didn’t end up being a ten, but it was better and I was looking for better.
Buen Camino, my friends. Hoping your day gets better, and hoping that laughter helps make it happen.
