Today’s Challenge: Make a list of the things you like to do for fun… then pick one and do it this weekend! 🙂
I pulled an all-nighter Wednesday night. Thursday morning, I was somewhat delirious from lack of sleep. But a funny thing happened…
I tapped into things I had forgotten about myself.
I’m not sure if the sleeplessness brought me back to my twenties when I pulled all-nighters of partying, drinking, and having fun, but I was overwhelmed by the fact that these days, I had neglected fun in my life.
Heading home from the airport, I mentally made a list of what I enjoy. It started off a little slow with museums and art galleries. Traveling was next on my list. Then came the realization that I like to take part in activities. I don’t like to sit and watch somebody else moving–I want to move. I’d rather go for a walk and talk with a friend than have lunch and talk. I’d rather swim or play catch at the beach than lay in the sun. I want to go bowling, swimming, indoor skydiving, almost anything that is active (within reason, I’m not into extreme, dangerous stuff) 🙂 I’m also the type of person that wants to try everything once. I want to do and see everything! I’ve traveled a lot in my life, but I have no interest in going back to any of the places I’ve been–I’d rather go to new places I haven’t seen yet. 🙂
Strange how a lack of sleep caused an awakening in me! 🙂 This weekend I’m going to do something I enjoy–something true to who I am. 🙂
What are you going to do this weekend?
