Good Morning Family,
Sorry I am late this morning, I had some other posts and emails to cover first.......... smhair
Being a grown-up is not easy. We are expected to work all day and squeeze in all the tedious tasks, such as paying bills and doing laundry, in our free time. If we get married and have kids, there are even more demands on our timeā€¦. It is not uncommon for adults to put fun on the back burner.
Today's Question:
Do you make fun a priority?

I didn't use to, but I do now. With the help of my husband, he is helping me to take more time to enjoy life instead of worrying about the little stuff.

I used to but lately I feel so crappy and I'm too busy inward thinking to put much thought to fun, plus my energy is low so I feel like I have to force myself to have fun.. how sad is that?

That said I am dreaming of the fun I will have in my garden once the snow is gone and we've got some nice weather/temps again. My husband brought this up the other day how we haven't been riding at all in months and how we used to winter ride on the beach so I think we might get the permit to take the horses down... I know it would be fun, just need a little push.

//>.>\\'.... I think I make fun a priority too often these days. Even when I know I should be doing something more... I dunno... Serious? I have a tendency to get lost being silly, goofy, playing games, writing stories... That sort of thing.
I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.

......I have learnt this past while to have fun is a biggie for me
I have actually laughed out loud so much in the last few days it seems at times silly
But I am enjoying my life and my new found zest for it

Good ??Lil sis

I do not make fun a priority although I should. I think that if I did that my life would be much better off than what it is now. I should really change alot of the things that I do in my life.

I usually make fun a priority, but my mind works so much at times that I lose myself in intensive projects :)
