Welcome to RiversZen's Reflections. Take a deep breath, listen thoughtfully, and then spend a few minutes in quiet meditation.

Here is Today's Reflection:

Laughter Unburdens My Soul

Challenging situations face me each day but I employ coping mechanisms to overcome them. When I laugh, my soul is relieved of emotional stresses and worries.

Whenever I am feeling stressed by work, I end my day by watching a funny movie. Although I know the challenges await me tomorrow, I release today's burden with laughter. Laughter clears my mind and lifts my spirit.

Spending time with friends brings me tremendous joy. I rely on their wit and creativity to keep my mind engaged. Laughter creates pleasant memories that last a lifetime.

When I share funny moments with my friends, I often reflect on them at my lowest moments. Those memories give me a jolt of energy and break the monotony of emotional burden. They remind me that there is much to be happy about.

I have the power to choose how to respond to situations. Although some situations make me unhappy, I am able to rise above that feeling. When I make the conscious decision to respond positively, it feels good. I allow that feeling to carry me throughout the day. 

Laughing at my silly mistakes encourages me to be kind to myself. How I treat myself sets the stage for the type of emotional burden that I allow others to impose upon me.

Today, I laugh whether I am happy or unhappy, because it is freeing to my soul. My source of emotional wellness lies in humor.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. How can I find humor when I am feeling low?
2. How do I know when my soul needs uplifting?
3. What activities can I introduce to my day to facilitate a lightness of spirit?


Take a deep breath, close your eyes and see what comes to your mind for the next few minutes while you listen to the splashing waves beneath the studio. Don't fight or judge, just listen. Watch for the nuggets of wisdom that come your way.
