You can be sad or frustrated at times or even feel like life is crazy! It wasn’t always that way though!
Can you remember how it was as a kid?
Playing, using your imagination, colouring, running around because you could! It doesn’t have to be exactly like that now, but there is fun to be had!
Don’t get me wrong! I can’t run like I used too! Age does get me to slow down or only go in short bursts! Not that I’m “old”! 😉
Playing with my kids really helps too! Building Lego, colouring, teaching them new things, telling stories!! There is nothing better!!
I know others will read this and think, “I don’t have time. I work, cook, clean house, drive kids to sports or dance or music class. There is no time!”
It only takes 10-15 minutes to play! A quick card game or 5 minutes to tell a funny story! Read a short story or a chapter of a book! Then talk about it!
A big part of having fun is sharing it with others!! Just having a coffee with others can be rewarding! Or tea or hot chocolate! 🍫
Life can be as you make it! It can be fun and full of happiness!
So now you may say, “I have no job to go out for coffee. I’m depressed and don’t want to be around people. I have anxiety about what I should do or say. I don’t feel like it.”
I get that! Trust me! I am the positive person in my house! Most of the time that is. There is anxiety in our family and I have helped with depression and keep helping!
As for not having a job to help pay for a coffee? I have been there too! Looking for work and making the you have money stretch is stressful!
But why not put all the small change away? It adds up quickly!! And I believe you will find that job!!
That goes for life as well!! Small changes add up into bigger changes! Maybe not as fast as you want or very big but it can help you!
You matter and life should be fun! Laughing and smiling is just a small thing that can spread to others! Before you know it, there are others joining you!
I will tell you more about what my family and I had to go through and how I came to see life as fun! But for now,
If it throws you a “curve ball”, catch it and throw it back! Have fun, enjoy your life, and don’t forget to smile! 😸
