You see we are always at choice whether we have fun or not. There is also the opportunity to see the fun in most situations.
For me I realised recently that I don’t create enough fun things to do. As you may have seen from my recent post I have just bought a new car that is a convertible, only seats two and has very little room for anything else, but it is incredibly fun to drive and brings a smile to my face every time I use it. It’s not practical but we have another car for that.
Anyway one fun activity that I have put off for years is going to the beach early and doing my morning walk and meditation. I had made up in my mind that it was going to be too hard to get there, too hard to park and that the traffic would be a disaster getting home. Last week I decided to finally give it a go. As it happens if I leave home by 6am I can do the walk and meditation be back by 7.15am which is around the same time I get back from my usual local morning walk. Easy, fun and fabulous seeing the sun coming up over the ocean. So essentially I could have been going on this walk for years but didn’t know because I had made up that it was going to be too difficult to do.
Now I have made a commitment to myself to do this walk at least once a week, but I also became aware of how I had limited myself because I what I had made up.
What do you put off because of your perceived limitations?
Make a list of the fun things you would like to be doing that you do now. Then ask yourself why you are not doing them? What limitations have you put in place?
Then decide to create more fun!
It is up to you!
