As I look back at the past year, I notice that an important element of a joyful and fulfilling life – fun – is missing from my life.
No matter what this year brings, I am going to adapt, adjust, and create fun in my life. Even if we have to be isolated and wear masks, I can make the best of what this year brings.
I remember the saying, “Necessity is the Mother of invention,” and dig into my creativity closet to find games and fun projects.
I dig out board games that can be played with the family. I set up a puzzle table for friends to enjoy. I create small dinner parties where we each get to tell a story.
I get coloring books to draw in. I take up painting. I take dance classes online. I am going to have fun despite the circumstances and conditions.
The lessons and experiences of last year teach me to be creative even in my daily routines. I become a much better cook. I find new recipes to make this year even more delicious.
I take up new sports. I might even try golf. I have always wanted to kayak. I am going to enjoy hiking even more this year. I am taking more walks in the parks. I am dusting off my bicycle and taking to the trails.
I now make it a point to find joy in the simple things. I enjoy the sight and smell of flowers year-round. I take time to savor my coffee. I love to blow bubbles out of my car window.
Today, I know that whatever I do this year, I am going to have FUN!
