Have Some Fun
I was lucky to have the remaining days of 2012 off from work starting last week. Since I was home and the family had no long term vacation plans, my wife in her infinite wisdom chose to update my Honey Do list with a few items to keep me busy. I was making my way through the list but then the snow came. My daughters begged me to go play with them in the snow but I was busy making progress on my list and so I kept saying I had to do something on my list instead. After finishing a task, I went to mark it off of my list only to find a new addition at the bottom made in sloppy hand writing. It simply said “play in the snow”. I had no more excuses and cheerfully went outside in the cold to make snow angels, build snowmen and have a snowball fight with my daughters. We all have important things we need to get done. But don’t forget to make time to have a little fun along the way. It re-energizes you and keeps stress levels low. And if you end up with a little snow down your back, it will simply remind you that you are alive. Happy Holidays everyone!
