December 19– Healing. What healed you this year? Was it sudden, or a drip-by-drip evolution? How would you liked to be healed in 2011?
I am assuming the author of this prompt is looking for something a little deeper, and a little more spiritual than “Three Buck Chuck. The Merlot, please.”
Okay, just let me put this glass down and get to thinking and a-ticka-typing.
Laughter. Laughing in celebration. Laughing in disbelief. Laughing so hard I cried and crying so hard I laughed. Making friends and family laugh. Laughing at home, laughing at work, and sending a hearty ‘LOL’ in response to a well-told joke sent many miles via text. Sometimes it’s a sudden outburst of laughter that makes you spit your coffee across the table and sometimes it’s a story that starts a tickle in your toes and rolls in to a giant belly laugh that just won’t subside.
I guess I could look for something else to heal myself with next year– maybe I could start becoming more one with my mindsoulbody by starting yoga or drink seaweed smoothies to literally heal myself when I am ill.
But laughing rarely has me bent with my butt in my air and my head tucked behind my ankles and it never makes me gag (although sometimes I might sputter, but you’d have to tell a heck of a knock knock joke). It’s pretty cheap, easy to come by, and has worked so well, that I think I might stick with it in 2011.
