Editor’s Note: For the 2021 edition of duPont Registry Tampa Bay’s Health & Happiness Issue, we asked an assortment of funny people “What makes you laugh?” Chelsea McMillan founded a company whose name leads with “Sunshine,” so it made sense to find out how she keeps things sunny. Turns out she’s wise, too — and, bonus, loves dogs.

Dogs! No matter what is going on in the world or my life — watching a dog be their authentic self, live in the moment and find joy in a little thing like a ball. Dogs always give me the giggles and put me in a good mood. 

Lately I’ve been laughing at myself a lot. These past few years have been challenging for so many and it has given me a new perspective on the little things I used to get upset about.

I think it is good to laugh at yourself or your honest mistakes sometimes. As Jimmy Buffett says, “If we couldn’t laugh we would all go insane.”
