Today's prompt is LAUGHTER. Most of us know of the Laughing Buddha, a jolly, overweight monk who's always smiling. Despite his ascetic existence, where he carries all of his worldly possessions in a tramp's bag, thus earning his Chinese nickname of Budai (literally meaning "cloth sack"), Budai is also a symbol of contentment and abundance. He is often pictured surrounded by children, friends, animals, and other followers who are drawn to his joyful personality.
Finding contentment in the world around us, discovering wonders in the seemingly insignificant is one way of always feeling rich in life. Laughter can become a natural part of our existence, and joy can become the attraction that draws friends closer to us.
I'm taking part in Dani DiPirro (IG @positivelypresent)'s 30-day gratitude challenge for the month of November. Every day, I'll be illustrating a different comic based on her daily prompts.
