I am ready to be playful, in fact I need to be playful, we all need to be playful and you know why?
It keeps us young!
I am certain that you have heard this saying over and over again
“We don’t stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing.”~George Bernard Shaw.
Well I need to laugh with my darling daughter who I haven’t seen in 4 months, except for Face Time, which surely takes the sting out of the distance.
I am looking forward to visiting with my kind and caring son-in-law, play a game of Frisbee with with my adorable grandson and granddaughter and dance with abandon along the edge of the deep blue sea.
By the time that most of you will be reading this I will have left Texas bright and early this morning for 10 days of family fun and the scenery wont be too bad either…(photo below)
I will be sharing the beauty, play and joy of my Puerto Trip on Instagram and also here on my blog as we travel on the island and surrounding areas.
You know sometimes we all just get in old rut and sort of have to say to ourselves “hey lady getting going, get playful, get creative and live!”
So here I am today shaking up my life and sharing some tips on how to rekindle that playful life we knew as a child.
“Tiny humans see magic and possibility where big humans only see mess and responsibility. May we see the magic again through their eyes and rediscover all the possibilities life has to offer.” ~ L. R. Knost
Playful Tip Number One-
It is an attitude of the heart!
So yesterday I stepped out of my comfort zone and I had a snappy, happy attitude. I mulled over all of the sensible colors of nail polish and then I said to myself hey now go ahead and get some pretty amazing nail polish color.
My heart said do it so I did!
Playful Tip Number Two-
Find that amazing imagination and use it to ignite your HAPPY!
Playful and happy go hand in hand, don’t be fearful of tapping into that youthful imaginative source that you knew as a youngster.
Paint, dance, sing, garden, and of course find time to be silly!
Playful Tip Number Three-
Live with gratitude and be present in the moment.
Because each moment has the potential to be playful!
Don’t miss the current moments by worrying about the future or agonizing over the past.
Capture each moment as if it were a fluttering butterfly.
Playful Tip Number Four-
Play with your surroundings.
What you choose to surround yourself with either depletes or feeds your true self.
What books do you read, what movies do you watch, what about your music choices?
Who do you associate with, do they inspire you and accept your authentic self?
Part of living a playful life is creating an environment for playful living.
Playful Tip Number Five-
Temporarily let go of agendas and thoughts.
Focus less on achieving and focus more on the experience.
Opening up our hearts and emptying our minds allows us to live through life rather than forcing life to happen.
As we journey through the magic of life we experience a freedom to play in the magic of living it.
Looking forward to sharing some of our playful Puerto Rico moments with you.
Thanks for joining me!
