The North Carolina Comedy Festival is running in Chapel Hill and Carrboro from yesterday until next Sunday. Eleven days of laughs! There's stand-up, improv, skits, comedy workshops; all kinds of comedy.
I'm going to attend some of the events to laugh and learn.
But, when you think about it, there's lots more funny stuff out in the real world.
The average child laughs over 40 times a day; the average adult laughs about 12. So often we let the negative in the world get us down, but if we keep our eyes open the stuff people do can crack us up and lift us up.
Look for the funny and you won't be disappointed; look for the negative and you'll get all you need and more.
What has made you laugh in the last 24 hours?
If you can't think of anything you aren't looking hard enough.
Make a point this weekend to look for the funny, even in depressing situations.
Have a great one!
