Demand it daily!  Fun is not a luxury item!

We get so wrapped up in our daily lives – the laundry (BTW, I’ve got a load in the dryer and one in the washing machine right now), the kids, the job, food shopping, menu planning, bed time, keeping a clean home, caring for your family, and so much more, right?  It’s time to put a stop to ALL of it, catch your breath, and give a little time and energy to what you want.

How would you truly like to spend your time?  REALLY, how would you like to spend your time?  Would you like to go to the beach, alone?  Would you like to read a book?  Would you like to go mountain climbing?  Would you like to go for a boat ride?  Would you like to go for a hike?  What would you like to do?  Would you like a cup of iced tea under a great big maple tree?  Would you like to paint your toe nails 10 different colors?

I recall learning a lot about chores, cleaning house, making dinner, washing dishes, doing homework, and more ‘not so fun things’ as a kid.  I remember having fun as a kid, but I don’t remember learning how to have fun.  I also didn’t see many grown-ups having fun.  This is a recipe for disaster.

FUN is not a ‘maybe’, or ‘wouldn’t it be nice?’!
FUN is essential.
Joy is essential.
Pleasure is essential.
It’s non-negotiable.
Fun is a necessity.
FUN is not a luxury item.
Make fun daily.
Demand a dose of fun daily.
You are so worthy of fun daily!!
Afterall, let’s be honest,
you wear fun so well!

The summer time is such a fun time of year.  There are so many fun things to do.  I am challenging myself to have more fun than ever this summer.  My husband is super supportive in this.  He’s actually calling me the Fun Queen to challenge me in mastering fun in life.

I’d like to do the following before the end of the summer:

Attend at least 2 summer concerts
Go to the beach with great sand and crashing waves on a beautifully sunny day
Go hiking
Go river tubing
Go boating
Read outside
Entertain in my home
See a sunset

YES!!  This is what I want!!  I think I may want even more but simply haven’t thought about it yet.  Can you please help??  What have you done that’s fun OR what fun are you looking to do?  I’m looking for inspiration.  I’d love it if you could share your favorite fun things to inspire me to want and do even more!!

Create fun daily!  Just do it!!

TAKE ACTION:  This action is made up of a few fun tasks:

  1. Think of the most fun you’ve had and share with me, please!
  2. What fun do you desire to have this summer and share with me.
  3. Exactly when are you going to engage in these fun activities?

I can’t wait to read what you have to share.  It will be an inspiration.  I thank you in advance.
