Do you still know how to have fun?  Do you have fun with your spouse?  Your children?  Your pets?  What do you do for fun?  I mean fun things that make you feel like a kid again.  Remember the wild abandon that you had as a child?  Remember when you would just drop and do a cartwheel, ride your bike for countless hours, play hide and go seek, run just to beat your sister to the car or roll all the way down a hill?

The thing is, I think I forgot how to have fun.  I think that if I had continued to jump in the leaves, roll down the hill, run around chasing butterflies, and just generally having fun, I would be more healthy in every aspect of my life.  I think about how amazing my balance was when I was young, how fearless, energetic, and carefree that I was.  I didn’t have to think about focusing on enjoying the moment, I just did.  I knew how to just let go and have fun.

Can we regain the strength, flexibility, mental freedom, and energy of our youth?  I think we can; we just need a bottle of bubbles, our imagination, and a skip in our step.

So, it’s the weekend.  Get out there and rake up a big pile of leaves and jump in it!  You’ll burn some calories, clear your head, and you’ll have some FUN!!

Do you remember crazy, fun things that you used to do as a child??  Share them with us here in the Leave a Repy area below.  Thanks for stopping by!
