Sometimes, as adults, I think we forget alot of things. No, I don't mean memory loss...and no, I don't mean things like *ahem* putting your purse on top of the car and driving off (we will save that for another post), or looking for your glasses and they are on top of your head (been there, done that as well.)
What I am talking about, is just having pure, plain FUN!
Do you remember the days that our biggest worry was where to set up the Barbie Townhouse? Or which friend we were going to go to first after we got done with the homework? How about which teen idol we were SURE that we were going to marry? Then there were the times of being totally carefree- riding bikes for hours on end. I could for hours, on a ten speed bike, on that teeny, tiny seat and my butt didn't hurt! I didn't worry about a thing- nope, not one worry. Playing frisbee in the park, going to the beach after hours, just to sit on a special rock and write poems, or climbing a dune.
So, I am saying, we need to give ourselves permission to just have fun sometimes. It's ok to forget the bills, forget the things that we feel we should be doing, like housework. Anytime you hear that voice in your head saying "I should be doing..." while you are having a bit of fun...instead say " I give myself permission to have fun today. The bills can wait. The laundry won't combust into flames. The toilet won't run away if I don't clean it right this instant."
Go and have some fun. It's allowed! Really, it is~
You will feel so much better, refreshed, energized and whoever you are having the fun with will love it too- especially the kids!
If you can, maybe come back and share the fun you had. I would love to hear about it.
