Never, ever underestimate the importance of having fun."—Randy Pausch
You guys! It is SO true. SO stinking true! And yet, I keep forgetting. I keep forgetting to make fun a top priority.
How about you? If you're like me, you have a list about ten miles long of things you want to do, need to do, should do. My own list is so long right now that I'm thinking about going on a solo vacation just to get more done (we'll call this a writers retreat...more on that another week!)
But because there are are things to do, bills to pay, children to feed, a job to do, well...sometimes fun falls to the bottom of the list. Because hello? I can have fun later, right?
So if you know a single, solitary person that has died a single day earlier than they should have, you know the answer to that question. You know, as I know, that life(!!!) and living (!!!) and eff. you. en. FUN (!!!!) have to be the real priorities. If it seems like I'm beating on the same old drum, forgive me. But I find that I need to hear this again and again. And again. Life is short. Make it count. Have some fun.
As I've said before, we don't get out much. So most of our fun has to happen in-house or with our kids. Here's how I've been filling my well lately.
I hope you're all finding ways to fill yourselves up with fun out there! Enjoy your week, your day, your bits of sunshine!
