There are so many opportunities for fun, fun, fun! What’s stopping you from trying them out?
Fun as Kids
When we were kids we loved to have fun. It was great to run around, play with toys, and laugh with friends. In fact, fun was pretty much how we gauged success: was that fun? Then it was a story to tell for the ages!
Fun was the way we were motivated. When we sat in a high chair and we wouldn’t eat our peas our parents made the spoon into an airplane. When we were scared our first day of school, we were regaled with all the ways we were going to have fun.
Life was focused on fun, fun, fun.
Fun as Adults
But then we became adults. Life became more complicated. In order to have fun, we decided we needed a faster car, so we put in more hours. We wanted to go on a fun vacation so we worked hard to get a bonus. We wanted to have a great big party for the Super Bowl with a giant screen over the fireplace, so we put in the effort, got a promotion and upgraded to a bigger home.
We got more stuff, more responsibility, and more obligations. The hours started to take their toll so we enjoyed just falling onto the couch after work and relaxing while watching the latest episode of Scandalmakers. We spent less time throwing parties because it was such a mess to clean up.
Life became more about surviving than thriving.
Fun, Fun, Fun
But why settle for this? Who’s permission are you waiting for to change it? It’s your life. Have fun! Actually, have fun, fun, fun!
Get outside and go for a walk. Get off the phone and have a talk.
Make some plans to take a trip. Go for a drive and let ‘er rip.
Call a friend and chat awhile. Find new clothes to change your style.
Go someplace you’ve never been. Study the reason it’s called Big Ben.
You don’t have to be a kid to have fun. You just have to decide to do it.
What’s stopping you? Go! Write down one thing you will do today. Then do it. Do it and have fun, fun fun!
