Humor in Addition to Vulnerability

I enjoy humor and being silly. I love to laugh and especially love to make other’s laugh. Making other’s smile through humor is probably one of my favorite character traits about myself.

I enjoy taking an awkward moment, an uncomfortable setting, or a moment where there’s a void of silence and throw in some humor to ease the tension in the air.

Humor is this release that pulls people together. It loosens our grips. It lets our guard down to open up to our surroundings allowing connectivity to occur.

Keeping that shield on and laughter aren’t possible at the same time. The connection is weak. It’s either one or the other.

Release Your Inner Ramblings

Writing is a major component of my self growth journey. It’s the foundation of being intentional.
