This is a response to the one-word prompt “Chuckle” by “The Daily Post.”
Every now and then I will be with a group of people (friends, family, or acquittances); something will be said, something done, or have happened that just causes everyone to chuckle, to crack a smile and I just love those moments. It does not matter what it is or how things are going at the time (what the atmosphere is like) good or bad, but just having those “chuckle moments” means so much and gives a lot without taking anything away.
These chuckle moments are special for me because they are so spontaneous and almost natural in their occurrence. Because of this everyone experiencing a “chuckle moment” can’t help but be affected positively. It is only when one tries to actively “manufacture” a “chuckle moment” that there can and often is some kind of negativity involved. For me, a good “chuckle moment” is whenever I am listening to someone give a lecture/talk or speech and they introduce usually ay “accident” some kind of joke or light comment. These help to relax the atmosphere and also help make a point.
What do you think about “chuckle moments?” If you like them, what are some of your favorite kinds? Do you have any specific ones you would like to share? Life can and often is hard on each of us that we need the “little things’ such as those “chuckle moments” to lighten the mood and keep things interesting and fun. So keep a lookout for those “chuckle moments” you never know when they will show.
Please share your thoughts, they are always welcome and very much wanted.
