I don’t want to sound ghoulish, but I have the feeling I’m not going to make it to be a little old lady with a walker and too much perfume. So, that means I’d better hurry up and have some fun. It is no longer enough to wake up, work, watch TV, go to bed, and start the whole thing all over again.
I am bound and determined to have a whole lot more fun in 2015 than I did in 2014. Interestingly, there are scads of other social networkers feeling the same way. So… I am officially throwing out the gauntlet on THE 2015 HAVE MORE FUN CHALLENGE! The goal is to do something fun every single day.
It could be something big like jumping out of a plane, or perhaps a more mundane activity, such as curling up on the coach and watching a movie with your sweetie. Having fun isn’t rocket science. Take a break and treat yourself. Laugh a little each day; sometimes laughter is your most effective weapon. Eat goofy food on your very best dishes. Play a new video or board game. Wear fancy earrings with your pajamas. Take a class that has always intrigued you. Go dancing, take Zumba classes, dance in the rain. DO SOMETHING! Run away from home every once in a while; take a vacation even if it is just for a weekend. Then stay off the computer and tell your friends and family not to contact you unless it is an extreme emergency. Stretch yourself…. really do some of the things on your bucket list. The key is to get out there and enjoy life.
Every few days I will be posting on my blog and social media sights about what I did for fun that day. To get us started, I am going to share some pictures taken last Christmas of the family parasailing. Just so you know, I am absolutely petrified of everything …. really. I have arachnephobia, agoraphobia, claustrophobia, dentophobia, gerascophobia, and meningiphobia to name a few.
My worst fear, however, is my fear of heights. So when my family asked me to go parasailing when we went to Florida, they fully expected me to politely decline. But I thought, I HAVE to do something daring in my life overflowing with Walter Mitty moments, and we were staying on Fort Myers Beach, so I though what the heck.
We were four hundred above the man eating sharks in the ocean and I wasn’t even scared! Well, only that my fear of sliding off the seat! I actually had a better time than did my husband and he is a tough guy. Parasailing is one of my favorite memories!
So, will you accept my challenge? What did you do for fun today?
Until next time,
