"We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing."
George Bernard Shaw
Life should be fun; a whole of fun in fact. But sometimes our lives are anything but. After all, we deal with a lot of stuff every day that to be honest, we wished we didn't have to deal with. This annoying array of stuff can become somewhat taxing. And sometimes this stuff can squeeze the fun right out of our lives.
Without the joy and happiness that fun brings to our lives, life can become little more than a constant uphill struggle for survival. Without a healthy dose of fun each and every day, we begin feeling trapped, tied down and hopelessly lost. Discouraged and disheartened, we gradually lose our vigor, our get up and go, and our oomph. With our energy sapped, our enthusiasm zapped, each hum-drum day hapleesly blurs into the next.
"People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing."
As we drift further and further away from the happiness we once knew, we start running out of steam. As we lose vigor, verve and vitality, small difficulties become magnified and insignificant problems get blown out of proportion. Before long, each day becomes a challenge, every challenge becomes an obstacle, and every obstacle becomes a mountain.
Doesn't sound like much fun, does it?
We want to have fun. In fact, we desperately need to have some fun, but fun is nowhere to be found. So what do we do?
"Fun is good."
Whenever life starts dragging us down, we need to drop what we're doing and go outside and play. That's right, we need to snap out of the snooze-a-thon that's boring us to tears and go out where the action is happening and get happening ourselves. And have some fun!
We need to walk in the green grass, breathe in some fresh air and soak in the radiant sunshine beaming down from the heavens above. As we let our hair down and revel in the glorious magnificence God has presented before us, an extraordinary feeling of joy and happiness begins to take the place of our worries and frustrations.
We begin feeling healthier, happier and freer than we have felt in ages, as if a huge weight has been lifted away. And we start having fun again.
"How time flies when one has fun!"
Life was never supposed to be a drag. Far from it. In fact, each day should be celebration; a cheery festival lived to its absolute fullest from beginning to end. You need to squeeze every ounce of joy you can from life. Squeeze good and hard - and then squeeze some more. And make life the fun filled adventure it should be.
You should look for the best life has to offer and then heartily embrace it as if your life depended on it because, in a way, it does. Rather than allowing yourself to get bogged down in the same old ho-hum routine, why not add some spice to your life and go have some good old fashioned fun?
Ready to have some fun? Then what are you waiting for? Why not put your troubles in your rear view mirror and break away from the same old stuff? Instead of monotonously going through the motions, why not go for the gusto?Don't just sit there! You need to bust out of the doldrums and go have a blast.
It's time to go outside and play.
The Bottom Line: Have some fun - and you'll have the time of your life.
