This is my way of perpetually forcing myself to find the humor in things that most people may not find funny. But I do know that hindsight offers humor if you surround yourself with the right people.
Instead of hindsight, I would rather find the funny in the moment because laughter does help in getting through some otherwise tough situations.
Finding the funny used to come natural to me, in fact I didn’t have to FIND the funny, it just appeared. The older I get I am discovering that I actually have to sift through my situations to find something funny.
I also have a gift for being able to laugh at myself, but it’s usually only when friends point it out to me. Ya know, how ridiculous and overly dramatic I can be.
I wish that I had a comedian friend so I could call him/her up and tell said comedian friend my current situation and then they could find the funny for me because it takes much more effort on my part to find the funny these days. I know it’s in there, but my new found cynicism seems to cloud my “funny” perspective.
I hope I can entertain you while I try and find the funny in the stories of my life. If I can’t find the funny, I can always find the silver lining.
