“I think that success is having fun.”

 —Bruno Mars

To live an extraordinary life, you’ve got to have fun! It’s a way to experience true happiness. When you were a child, you enjoyed having fun. However, as you got older, you may have had too many responsibilities that took priority over having fun. Life can feel dull and like a burden, when it is all work and no play.

Is having fun mandatory for you when you have free time? If not, you can begin today to make it an essential part of your life. When was the last time you had fun? What were you doing? If you are not sure what is fun for you, then try new things. Just last week, I went to my first professional football game. I am not into football; however, since I tend to love anything live, I decided to give it a try. I had so much fun going to that game! Hearing a crowd of over 75,000 people rooting for their favorite team was a new experience for me, which I greatly enjoyed. I never would have guessed I would have had so much fun at a football game when I don’t even follow the sport.

“Just keep taking chances and having fun.”
Garth Brooks

Why not try something new over the next few weeks that may be fun for you? What would you like to try? Follow your gut when making this decision. If something intuitively does not feel right to you, then choose something that does. Just recently, I was invited to an adult Halloween party. Even though it was a nice invitation, this did not feel intuitively right to me, so I declined the offer. The fun you experience needs to be positive and feel intuitively right to you. If you are unsure of how to listen to your intuition, then you may benefit from reading my blog post Listening to Your Intuition.

How would you feel if you had something to look forward to each week that greatly added to your life? Take time right now to schedule something fun for yourself. You are meant to live an extraordinary life filled with fun! Give this gift to yourself!
