The one thing that you have that nobody else has is you. Your voice, your mind, your story, your vision. So write and draw and build and play and dance and live as only you can.
Fun. Everything is an opportunity for play, gates, latches, tubs and buckets! My yearling filly, Desiree is certain that all is meant to have entertainment value for her. Play is the goal. Fun is the game. Don’t take life to seriously. It really is meant for fun.
Play vs Frustration
One day I went to crawl on my lovely very tall buckskin stallion, Ambro. I was tired, and he knew it. And he decided that standing still for me to mount was not on his agenda for the day. I was about to get pissed off and angry at him (although that wouldn’t have helped), but instead I started laughing. I saw myself it was hilarious this goofy woman attempting to get on this huge horse who was clearly not into cooperating. I think my laughing stunned him so much that when I stopped laughing to get back on him, Ambro stood perfectly still as if attempting to figure out the joke. I hope he knew I was laughing at myself, and finding my own frustration amusing!
What if we spent our day having fun with everything that entered in? What if we looked for the funny side? Made it a game? Entertained ourselves with it? What if we found fun and laughter even in the frustration of the day to day? What if we could find the humor in the middle of an argument? What if we could literally roll with laughter at the punches? What if we didn’t take life, ourselves, or others quite so seriously? Might our world be a bit lighter and brighter, maybe we would be.
