Sometimes you just need to laugh. Sometimes you just need to take a walk with your best friend. Sometimes you need to step out of your comfort zone and try a new food. Maybe, sometimes you look at your surroundings and recognize how good life is and want to grasp any opportunity to enhance it, make it better, in a very simple way. That’s the hope with this, Things To Do This Weekend list. We experience so much busyness, anxiousness
We experience so much busyness, anxiousness, & uncertainty during the work week. There’s rarely enough time to appreciate the “good” things in life. Comedy has the actual ability to make someone feel better. Supporting and contributing to a great cause provides an amazing sense of gratification and humility towards others. Stretching your mind and pushing your body can open you up to brand new perspectives and a ‘better’ you. All of this weekend’s fun events and activities are all about the GOOD things in life. Whether you’re in the heart of The Queen City, the Lincolnton area, Matthews, or across the NC-SC line in Fort Mill, these will (all) bring some smiles to our community.
