Laughter and Liberty – The Basics of Life

Welcome to my blog on laughter and liberty – two things that I consider to be the core of a happy life. In this blog, I will share with you my experience and advice on how to get the most laughter and liberty into your life. I hope you will find my experiences are inspirational to you in some way.

First off let me introduce myself. My name is Michelle Tasker and I work in the fitness industry. I currently reside in the Fayetteville, AR area and I am an avid patron of the arts. I love to read, travel, and meet new people.

Why Laughter?

            I think deep down we all know how important laughter is to our lives. We can see and feel the effect that laughter has on our body and mind. Medical studies have even shown that during laughter our body releases endorphins which is paramount to our wellbeing. In general, laughter makes us feel good and this leads to feelings of happiness. That is why no matter how bad my day is going, I always try to look on the lighter side of things to find a laugh and that is also why I consider laughter an important part of a happy life.

Why Liberty?

            When talking about liberty we often think about our constitutional and civil rights and our freedoms. While these liberties are very essential to the enjoyment of our lives, I think my concept of liberty goes beyond that. I believe liberty also entails freedom from social constraints and other constraints that prevent you from enjoying life. I think we are happiest when we are free to pursue what we love and express ourselves freely.

A Little Extra Liberty in my Life

            One of the areas of my life that I find is an absolute chore, takes up a lot of my time, and I find little enjoyment in is keeping my house clean. I really love the effect that a clean and tidy home has on me, but the entire process of cleaning is just really tedious and boring to me. I struggled with this chore for a really long time thinking it was all on me to keep my house clean. Finally, after one particularly bad weekend of cleaning, I started to think that there has to be an easier or better way than cleaning all the time. That is when I started looking into using a maid service. At first, I thought it would be really expensive and maids were just for rich people, but after getting quotes from several places I found the price of maid service to be very reasonable especially around Fayetteville. Having a maid service come to my house weekly has freed up so much of my time now. I don’t wake up on Saturday mornings anymore dreading scrubbing my toilet or vacuuming the whole house. Now I have more time to enjoy breakfast with my friends and family, read a good book, or even sleep in. That to me is the ultimate freedom.
