I’ve noticed recently that I try to get myself to enjoy more funny things, watch more funny tv shows and movies. But at each time I reflect on that, I’m not doing much more to use humor in a healing way as a survivor.
I have noticed recently that I am more consistently doing body love work. I think that has been helped along a great deal with my postings about body love here on the blog, as well as trying to practice that in my daily life. So I thought that my healing with humor could use some encouragement by blogging about it.
I understand that my kind of humor, or what makes me laugh, might not be what others find funny. I hope that they wouldn’t find it offensive either. But sometimes humor can be.
The suggestion that others might vacuum topless to Carly Simon is something that made me laugh. Not necessarily the line, because it could be seen as being offensive. But the show and in the context of the show. It was on an epsidoe of Psych that I watched recently. I love the show. It consistently makes me laugh. The fake psychic on the show was trying to distract a roomful of people while the guest speaker was being delayed for safety reasons. This is the line he came up with. It was particularly bad. No one raised their hand. I laughed.
The laugh was good. I don’t much find myself laughing at situation comedies or comedy movies that much anymore. It felt good. It felt good to be alive. And it reminded me that I need to do that more and seek out ways of doing that more. So here I am blogging about it. I’ve been watching more things that I find funny and will post more soon. I’m not sure if laughter is healing. But I’m still going to try to embrace it more… and I will not be vacuuming at the same time, or listending to Carly Simon.
