In our quest for health, it is so easy to forget about having fun. Today, as we were walking on the beach, we were absolutely delighted as we watched 3 little kids running into the surf and screaming at the tops of their lungs with glee as the waves "caught" them and they ran back to the sand.
Allen and I both reminisced about being that age and playing with the waves too. Can you remember the sheer joy of being at the beach and running around until you just dropped? I don't know about you but I was always the last one out of the water, swimming until the very last minute that Mom or Dad declared it was time to go!
So, as we walked the sand, I just enjoyed the fun of being at the beach, not worrying about if I was going fast enough. If I saw a pretty shell, I simply squatted down to pick it up without thinking about "doing another squat". It was SO NICE to just have fun at the beach.
The next time you go to the beach, a park or go on a walk, why don't you focus on just having fun!
Desire to have fun. Dedication to focus on the sheer joy of living. Discipline to let go of anything that gets in the way.
