Things That Matter: Having Fun Again

Yesterday we shared Sarah and Ben’s story. And, that mattered. My heart was overwhelmed with awe.   So today, for things that matter, I wanted to touch on the lightness in our hearts.   That is, the child inside all of us.   The parts of ourselves that want to have fun. The part of us that’s eager to relax and play. Eager to say whatever comes to the mind. And, eager for freedom to explore and engage.

“In every real man a child is hidden that wants to play.” ~Friedrich Nietzsche

But, as adults—we just don’t have that same freedom, do we?   There are high expectations for us to behave a certain way. And, consistent stresses—of our day jobs, child rearing years, regretful pasts, or worrisome futures.

“What a distressing contrast there is between the radiant intelligence of the child and the feeble mentality of the average adult.” ~Sigmund Freud

Are you having fun? Fun in life, like a kid? Laughing and playing, with no cares? If you say, “Yes” cheers my friend! (Also, please leave comments of tips below). If you’re nodding your head back and forth, saying, “eh.”   Then, play hooky for a day.  And, if you flat out say, “no” then, let’s have fun again.  What happened to kick the can days? Does it really have to end, because of our age?   Round up some friends and bring back some old school fun.

“It is a happy talent to know how to play.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
