March is International Mirth Month


I just discovered March is International Mirth Month! 🙂 How very exciting is that I ask you? It just is such a wonderful thing, I hope everybody will choose to celebrate Mirth. It’s kind of a strange sounding word, isn’t it? What does mirth mean exactly? I found 10 words to nicely sum up mirth: Happiness, Laughter, Enjoyment, Merry Making, Delight, Joyfulness, Fun, Glee, Hilarity, Amusement.

Wow, but mirth is sure right up my alley and Autumn’s, too! It calls to us Twinnies a lot, quite often it seems! 🙂 How many of you kind readers are with us? I just am loving this whole idea of a whole entire month of mirth so much…It is making me smile and also the Twinnie is smiling and soon we are laughing! 🙂 Who among us doesn’t want to celebrate such a glorious thing as mirth? I hope that would be nobody, because the opposite of mirth is gloom.

Of course we all unfortunately know some gloomy and unhappy people, we can always try to get them to embrace mirth, right? It can work…Sometimes, but other times it does backfire. They actually could try to drag us into their dreaded doom and gloom. Some people sadly want to be miserable and we just plain can’t change them. What a terrible thing, but we tried and sometimes very hard, too.

What do we do then for them? Well, say a little prayer for these people, but kind of distance ourselves. It may not sound very nice, but we have to. If we hang around them too long it might affect us…We just can’t have that. I know, it really is a disappointment but we have to live our lives for the better, not the worst!

So get ready to join in the fun and joyfulness of mirth kind readers…There really is nothing as awesome. Start with a smile, it will go on from there…Give it a try, go ahead everybody! 🙂 Pretty soon you will be spreading mirth everywhere you go, I know I am!

Autumn says let’s celebrate this fine month of mirth and it’s really is starting right now! 🙂 I found a quote concerning mirth and I just have to share it: ” Mirth is like a flash of lightning, that breaks through a gloom of clouds, and glitters for a moment; cheerfulness keeps up a kind of daylight in the mind, and fills it with a steady and perpetual serenity”~~Joseph Addison. He sure did write one lovely quote, didn’t he?

So there you have it kind readers, The Month of Mirth is here and let’s make the best of it! Share your thoughts if you would like, too because sharing really is fun and fun is mirth! 🙂 🙂
