Life is meant to be enjoyed! It is often taken for granted that there will be plenty of time to say and do the things in life that we want to do. This day we are living has never been before and will never be again. So I need to embrace that there are 24 hours in this day and I have choices on how to live it. It is a gift.
I love the words fun and adventure. Adventure for me doesn’t necessarily mean that I have to climb Mount Everest or hike the Grand Canyon. For me, adventure means enjoying my life – sometimes just going with the flow. Laughing, smiling, being silly, not always taking everything so seriously!! I enjoy my life!
Sometimes, it’s hard to be an adult, mature and focused on the important business at hand. But really, it is OKAY to have FUN! Even when you are an adult. I do little things for myself and others that make me smile. For example, the shoes in the picture below are my new favorite shoes – I bought them in January 2017 and they symbolize fun to me. Why wait?
Think about the most fun you have ever had in your life. It doesn’t have to be a monumental event or experience. I try to have fun every day. I am a VERY HAPPY person. When I think about WHY I want to be happy – I think of this little girl in the picture. She is me. She is still inside me and deserves to grow up and be a happy person who has fun!
When you are tempted to be too serious and focus on the pain and sadness in life, remember that happy and fun time. I think it’s okay to acknowledge pain and process it. Then, I get on with my life. This little girl deserves it and so do you.
