I’m really good at taking life seriously. I remember my Life Coach asking me when we first met, “what do you do for fun?”. I was stumped. (That was after she informed me that going to the gym was not ‘for fun’.) Play, she explained, is something you do that has no agenda, no outcome, no check-list.
Today, I play often. I just can’t help myself. It’s so….FUN! It’s an instant connection to spirit, it immediately raises my energetic vibration and it plasters a big smile right across my face.
Last week I was out for a walk with a girlfriend and while she used the washroom midway, I hit up the swing set – bliss. Yesterday, while away on a quick trip I was in the hotel gym which overlooked the pool. As I warmed up I watched the kids playing in the pool and enjoying the big yellow water slide – they were having a ball. As soon as I was done my workout – off I went to the pool – and you guessed it, down the slide.
Now that I jump at the opportunity to play, I couldn’t imagine my life any other way. Are you on the play bandwagon? What do you do for fun?
