My favorite four letter word is PLAY. It might be the most carefree, natural feeling I can embody. Its through playing that I feel like I can flirt with life, no matter what I am doing. When I play, I feel young, timeless even.
I was at the Chopra Center in San Diego this weekend taking the course "Journey into Healing". One of our assignments was to rate from 1-10 different aspects of our life. The categories were: Finances, Career, Fun and Recreation, Health, Family & Friends, Spiritual & Personal Growth and Romance. My total average score was 8.5. I was so happy to see that although I could take more pristine care of my health, career and finances, there is an element of fun I have with each. Every minute of every day certainly not, but for the most part, I try not to take all of it too seriously. Once I really committed to understanding and accepting that I cannot control Life, I made a decision to enjoy it.
Its a choice I have to make every day.
I might as well play.
