Guess what day it is???? That’s right, it is HUMP day which means it is WOOHOO Wednesday.
I LOVE to celebrate! I have found that by celebrating at least 3 things EVERY DAY, my perspective on life has changed. I no longer hang out for hours with Negative Nellie or Doubtful Debbie. I SQUASH those inner gremlins and send them on their way.
It has been a rough two months for me – health wise and with the JOB. So I want to do some celebrating of things that are FUN! When was the last time that you treated yourself to ANYTHING? Maybe it was a bubble bath or that special coffee or maybe it was just sitting and watching the sunrise/sunset. Maybe it was playing in the park with the kids?
Think about it… what is your idea of fun? I have to be honest, for a LONG time I wasn’t sure that I even knew what FUN was. As a busy working single mom, fun was doing things with Belinda. Then the empty nest syndrome snuck in. Left my full-time job, Belinda moved to North Carolina now it is just hubby and I. We are creating our own NEW ideas of what fun is. Sometimes we have FUN together and then there are times that we do things apart.
I absolutely LOVED Eryka Peskin‘s definition of fun: “By fun I want you to be frivolous. I want you to do things that have no other value other than making you laugh or feel good.”
Life is filled with LOTS and LOTS of stuff to do and it isn’t long before we push aside things that are fun. I know it is intentional – life gets in the way. Now, I know that some of you enjoy cleaning or cooking or running with the kids – to you that is fun. But at the end of the day are you energized? I mean what could re-cahrge you more than some basic fun.
I know that fun varies from person to person BUT I want you to figure out what’s FUN for you, do it, and celebrate it! We are so worthy of having FUN!
Here are my three things to CELEBRATE having fun:
I celebrate that I spent an hour just working on a puzzle which at that moment I thought was a total waste of time BUT it was fun.
I celebrate that hubby and I watched a movie (I don’t even remember the name) but it was so dumb that I laughed out loud. It felt good to laugh at something so silly.
I celebrate hanging out with friends. Just talking and laughing over everything and nothing.
What are you going to do to have FUN today? Share it with us so that we can all CELEBRATE together.
Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!
