Have you asked yourself of late if you are having fun in your lives?
If not, ask yourself now - are you?
Or did you immediately think this to be a frivolous question and wonder who are you to be having fun?
Fun is not for you because life is a serious matter and you treat it seriously.
Over that past few years I find myself reflecting upon whether I am having fun - or not. Previously I was very serious and did not feel that fun was much for me. Of course I took pleasure in my work, my friends, my family and was always happy when they were yet I felt fun was beyond my grasp as I focussed on fulfilling my various roles.
I had a friend who always ended her emails with "are you having fun?" or " are you having an adventure?". Wistfully and quickly my eyes would float over the words...I wondered why she placed so much importance on having 'fun'.
What I can say from my perspective, is that we are in this life to live it to the fullest. In joy, happiness and in fun. If fun and lightness are not present, we are left with drudgery and darkness. Why would we choose that?
We do at times lose sight of having fun and we do lose sight of lightness as we move through our days, weeks and years. Best not to judge ourselves but to be mindful of asking ourselves now and again if we are indeed, having fun.
If not, then why not.
If you have lost your way, your motivation or you reason to be, sit in silence and ask yourself why.
You will hear the answer if you are open to it.
You will not if you are sitting in fear of what you might hear.
Listen to your inner voice for it has much to share with you.
