Laughter is one of life’s greatest gifts and acts as medicine for the soul. I live for the moments when I laugh so hard my whole body feels radically alive. In all of my crazy experiences throughout this journey, one of my most prominent memories is sitting with my eldest daughter so excited to meet the laughing saint. We all sat on our meditation pillows, nervously waiting for this heartfelt man that was supposedly going to just sit and laugh for an entire hour. I was up for anything-- I’ll never turn down an opportunity to let in some extra joy or happiness—but not quite sure what to expect. In he walked, a light filled man with a smile from ear to ear. He sat in easy pose and stared at us as giggles and smiles flooded the room. He burst into a roaring belly laugh that lasted for the remainder of the hour.
Laughter sets our spirit free and serves as a reminder of how serious we all can be without even knowing it. We should all remind ourselves to let go and laugh, at not only ourselves, but at this crazy life that can get so heavy at times.
It’s impossible to find myself being too serious anytime I’m around my good friend, and comedian, Josh Nasar. He can make one silly face and instantly I’m back to why I’m really here on this planet. To laugh, play, and surround myself with people that make life fun!
Also an actor, he once played a tough cop on one of my favorite shows that I used to religiously binge watch called “Sons of Anarchy.” Josh is so talented, the internet can’t get enough of him either: I’ll never forget when he went viral on YouTube. Whether he’s standing in his underwear on the side of the road hitch hiking, or giving me relationship advice, there is truly never a dull moment.
The first time we did a radio show together, Josh made me feel so at home and so comfortable discussing myself to an audience. I couldn’t stop laughing, and I was intrigued by just how personable he really is. I’ve come to know him as such a creative, inquisitive individual with a knack for networking and a love for life in general.
This podcast was a perfect example of what happens when the two of us hang out. We just let it roll and always leave feeling complete. To me, that’s a real friend. I love this talk with Josh as we laughed through it all and created another priceless memory, and I’m so excited to share it with you.
