Are We Having Fun Yet??

Do you know that the average child laughs 300 times a day?  And guess how many times the average adult laughs a day.  A measly 15.  These are not good statistics my friends.

What is the point of being here if we're not having fun?  Like it or not, we are all on this planet together- why not make it a fun & joyful party?  Let's love, create, do the things that make our heart sing & most importantly laugh up a storm while doing so.  Turn off the news & its gloom & doom (it causes feelings of stress, depression & helplessness).  Put on Comedy Central, Seinfeld or your comedy of choice (laughter reduces stress, boosts your immune system & creates overall feelings of well-being & happiness).  Or even better meet a friend & laugh together.

If you're thinking, how can I have that much fun?  How can I laugh that much?  Life is serious business!  Don't worry, there are inevitably going to be those life moments of sadness, frustration & tears so we need to fill ourselves up with as much joy & laughter as possible to get through them when they do come.

When is the last time you told someone your favorite joke?  Do you even have a favorite joke?  If not, go out & get one!  Mine is:

What do you get when you cross a penis & a potato?  A dictator.

Silly, I know, but it gets me every time! :)

This post is dedicated to Robin Williams & Joan Rivers- two shining stars who brought countless laughs to the world through their creativity, fearlessness & vulnerability.  Let's do right by them & kick those kids asses.  Can we hit 350?  400?  In fact, I might stop talking & only communicate by laughing.  Game on you little punks.  Oh, you think that's funny??
