Never Regret, We will Get There…
Have you ever made a decision may it be a family, financial or spiritual decision and along the way you do not get the good outcome and regretted?
This was what happened to me some time back. I entered into a contract with an IT company last year to upgrade my e-Learning platform. It took them 3 months before they came back to me that there were unable to implement what I wanted. I then requested a refund, unfortunately, up to now, they have not refunded the money, sighting the effect of COVID-19.
I told one of my freinds stating that I regrete hiring that company.
My friend replied, “Never regret, we will get there Charles. I understand it is a hard time at the moment, but it is hard for everyone around the world at the moment, we just need to keep fighting and get through it”
This comment put a smile on my face…
I remembered an article written by Shaun Buck that talks about putting a smile on someone who is passing through stress or struggle and would like to share it with you below…

“I was in a dental office waiting room, more than 20 years ago, when I picked up a National Geographic magazine out of sheer boredom and read an article about a city that celebrates a national day of laughter. As I recall, the article mentioned that the city would shut down and hire comedians, clowns, etc so their citizens could just laugh for 2 straight hours. And they had some of the healthiest people living there when compared to other countries.
I have been combing the internet for this specific article and have not been able to find it or any other mention of this laughing city. But I remember being in that waiting room and thinking really hard about it. The initial feeling was one of—for lack of a better word—delight. How fun does it sound to live in a place where everyone gathers to just laugh together? I mean, a lot of us could use a little bit of that right now.
Over the years, that article has continued to come into my mind. We’ve all heard the old adage “laughter is contagious”, and in recent years, science has proven that that’s actually completely true. When someone laughs, our brains start lighting up in preparation to join in.
You’ve also heard the adage that “laughter is the best medicine.” In fact, it has been linked to significant health benefits like better-functioning organs and muscles, stress relief, a boosted immune system, and even pain management. So as you’re laughing, you’re causing others to laugh, and the whole room is getting a health boost!
Why am I telling you this? A couple of reasons.
First, I noticed this old article seems to come to mind most in times of great stress or pain. When I remind myself that laughter provides essential benefits for getting through a rough time, I don’t feel as guilty for taking the time to open up and make sure I have opportunities to feel joy and humour. It’s okay to be happy, even when things are hard. One does not negate the other, but certainly, the laughter can help us get through it.
Secondly, the article is an affirmation that the content we work to put out can have lasting effects on those who read it. I bet that whoever put that article together 20 years ago thought that it was going to be a nice reading break from the more “serious” content in that issue, and never imagined it would make such a large impact on me or change my opinion of laughter in general. I don’t even remember what the rest of the issue was about.
My takeaway being
we don’t need our content to be 100% serious for it to be taken 100% seriously. There is benefit in writing about the things that inspire, amuse, bring joy to, and even exasperate us. So let’s all take a deep breath. Feel the sunshine, warm on our faces. Laugh out loud. Hold in this moment. Keep pushing, and keep communicating. We’re almost there, folks. We’ve almost made it through. Just a little further to the goal!”
