Playing is for Grownups Too…
As you look back to your childhood years, do you ever remember thinking: “I wish I never grow up to be a boring adult”. As a little girl, I would often think how serious and stuck up grownups were, I would think to myself “when I grow up, I will be nothing like that, I will be fun, creative, spontaneous, and most importantly, I will never stop playing”! Well that was a pile of gibberish… I ended up throwing away my Barbie dolls at the age of 11, I stopped spending hours creating games and crafts, and I started acting like a “grownup woman”, whatever that means. I also started feeling anxious, confused, and insecure. Fifteen years later, I dream about feeling free as a child and doing what I truly love. I might not have reached that point just yet, but I am certainly moving in that direction. I also recall dreaming about all the cool stuff I’d be able to do as an adult, with nobody around to tell me what to do or not to do, the world would finally become my oyster! Now I know that we all have responsibilities, but isn’t the most important one of them making sure that we are happy, fulfilled, and free-minded? One of the things I want to focus on in 2012, is to relax more and really take the time to have plain old fun, here are a few ideas that will bring you to that place you wish you had never let go of, have fun my friends!!!
