The importance of having a humor
We have all met that person that we think doesn't have a single funny bone in their body. As if they don't know how to laugh, or have any humor at all. Then there are those that we meet that we don't believe have ever seen a bad day in their life. Then there are those that just make our lives not as happy. The most important thing I have learned in all of my 27 years of life, is that happiness is essential to living. That joy comes from experiencing pain, but that we can choose to be happy more oft times than not. Smiling makes a difference not just in our lives, but definitely in others. There are also other forces, and experiences that happen that allow us not to be so happy. Some may find happiness at the expense of others, and joke, and be crude. So where do we find a proper balance of being happy and serious? President Gordon B. Hinckley I believe answered this question best, he said, "we need to have a little humor in our lives.We better take seriously that which should be taken seriously, but at the same time we can bring in a touch of humor now again. If the time ever comes when we can't smile at ourselves, it will be a sad time."
