Yesterday, a friend texted me a link for translating English to Klingon/Tradukka.  Have I tried it? ABSOLUTELY! I jumped on that bad boy immediately because that is just too awesome (I mean, how could I resist??).  I translated something that the President said recently, since that somehow seemed to make it even more fun. I, of course, then sent that translation back to my friend and even shared the silliness with a few more folks.

No, I do not believe that Klingons are real…and, although I was heartbroken as an adult to see that the Tribbles I remembered from the Star Trek reruns as a kid were SO not real, I have never been a Trekkie. Still, Klingons are just cool; and someone posting a usable English-to-Klingon translator online is just FUN. Somebody actually came up with that and shared it, bringing some fun and joy to the world.

From Klingons to videos of cats with light sabers, I love the endless imagination and huge range of creativity that people are sharing so that the world can have some fun and laughter. Kudos to them for their creativity, and “Bravo!” to them for spreading that upbeat energy.  There’s real joy that comes from experiencing that content and then getting to share it with someone else so that they get to experience it, too.

I appreciate and am in awe of humans’ capacity for creativity; and, in addition to being fun and enjoyable, things like this are also inspiring and remind me of possibilities.  That’s the great thing about fun—It has an amazing power to tap into a true life force, shift your energy, and open you up to more creative perspectives.

The joy and shifts that you sense aren’t just all in your head or fleeting feelings, either: There are real proven benefits from fun, laughter, and sharing them with someone else.  There are true physical health benefits such as decreased stress, blood pressure, pain, and muscle tightness; plus emotional health benefits of helping to bring you back into balance, to connect with others, and even to strengthen relationships.  These are all important to having improved well-being and quality of life.  Living with MS, we can definitely use all of the therapeutic benefits we can get in these areas, so why not make time to have a bit of fun or a laugh regularly?

How long has it been since you genuinely enjoyed some fun and laughter?  Where in your life can you make a little time for fun and laughter and even share it with others?
