Joy In The Here And Now

Work like you don't need the money. Love like you've never been hurt. Dance like nobody's watching.

   Satchel Paige

Some people believe that anything new they want to learn or do always must be difficult and approached in a serious manner.  But what would it be like if the opposite were true? What if life was actually meant to be “fun” a good part of the time?

Science suggests that the more enjoyment you experience while learning or doing something the better your brain functions. Having fun improves your work, your relationships, and your quality of life in general.  The more you infuse your activities with joy and enthusiasm, the more you contribute to your world.

Have you become stuck in some of your habits, perceptions or actions?  Do you feel older than your years, or burdened with responsibilities?  Whatever your age or circumstances, you can reconnect with your sense of fun. All it takes is a willingness to be flexible in your attitude.  Flexibility makes room for growth and excitement, and allows you to adapt and thrive in the face of change.  Being flexible enables you to see new opportunities and capitalize on them.

You only have this one life, and it’s way too short to be dragging your unhappiness along now in the hope of better times to come.  Let today be the day you wake up and give your inner child permission to come out and play. Make a conscious choice to enjoy what you’re doing and how you’re doing it, to see humor in all but the gravest situations, and to include a little foolishness in your serious plans.  The happier you are the healthier and more creative you will be, and the more joy, prosperity and blessings will show up for you and for everyone whose lives you touch.
