A lot of times when I’m saying goodbye to someone, I’ll say, “Have fun!”
It’s not just something to say, it’s something I really hope for that other person. Why shouldn’t life be fun? Sometimes we get caught up in all the day-to-day trials and tribulations that we forget about having fun. We may go days or even weeks without having fun. That is such a shame.
Life is meant to be lived. It’s supposed to be fun. Try to find some time every day to have fun. Make it something that you find fun. Everyone is different. What’s fun to one person may not be fun to someone else.
If it’s been too long since you’ve really had fun, you may need to figure out what you think is fun. Take out a piece of paper and make a list of all the things you think would be fun to do. Don’t worry about whether it’s something you can do right at that moment. It might be something that you need to plan. That’s okay, the point is to make a list of all the things you think might be fun.
Then each day give yourself some time to have fun and pick something from your list. The more you start making time for fun, the more fun life will become.
Whatever you do, don’t make having fun a chore. Remember how it was when you were a kid and you just had fun. Let that be the way you have fun now — with the complete abandonment of a kid. Allow yourself to truly have fun.
To your happiness!
