The Humormeister's Forum, Issue #00070
August 31, 2013
Welcome to the 70th Humormeister's Forum edition
I live in a city of one and a quarter million people. Behaviour of people in city traffic shows that a number of people, particularly in the age bracket of 20 - 35 are impatient and more prone to rude behaviour to other drivers.
It's unfortunate that these people feel that way, because it does nothing positive for them or the drivers around them.
It takes so little effort to produce a smile, and yes, it provides a good felling to be courteous to other drivers, as well as to yourself. It can make a huge difference in the way you will handle and enjoy the rest of the day.

The key to happiness and freedom is a sense of humor, and a sense of humor is nothing more than the ability to laugh at oneself - Author unknown
The 1 Minute laugh
An eighty-five year old couple died in a car crash. When they reached the pearly gates, Saint Peter took them to their mansion, which was decked out with a beautiful kitchen, living room, bedroom, and master bath suite with a sauna and jacuzzi.
As they ooohed and aaahed, the old man asked Saint Peter how much all this was going to cost.
Saint Peter replied: "This is heaven - it's free!"
"You play golf for free, you can eat as much as you like, and you never get fat and never get sick!"
The old man looked at his wife and said: "This is all your fault, if it weren't for your blasted healthy eating recipes, I could have been here years ago!"
Kids are funny!
We were on our way to the hospital where our 15 year daughter was to have a tonsellectomy.
"Dad," our daughter asked, "How are they going to keep my mouth open?"
"That's easy," I said. "They are going to give you a phone!"
Joy vs Happiness
We live in a society that continuously searches for happiness.
A self-help personal transformation industry has evolved on the North American continent as a result. However, the element of joy is different.
Joy is a deeper more internal experience than happiness. In many ways we can find happiness in external events and circumstances. We can purchase aspects or moments of happiness, however, we cannot buy joy.
Joy is more related to feelings of inner peace and inner satisfaction with self, life, and our circumstances.
People who have a sense of inner peace and joy for life and living are able to get through difficult circumstances and find a way to remain grounded, and find ways to see the good aspects.They look for the silver linings behind the dark clouds.
