I’m my own best friend, keeping myself in daily amusement and entertainment…laughing out loud, talking to myself, making up funny skits and dances, and guiding myself by gentle hand through the ups and downs of life.
As much fun as I have on my own and with my animal companions and imagination, it’s definitely a treat to share the fun and laughs with a friend who mirrors the same deliriously silly shenanigans and yet can also carry a conscious conversation.
I got a surprise message from one such friend (Lynne – you may remember her as my banana cohort) was arriving in town a few weeks ago and so we were able to share in a fun day while she was visiting on Friday – Friday Fun Day!
We spent a perfect day eating at a favorite vegan restaurant for lunch, then grounding ourselves on a nature stroll (aka hike) overlooking the ocean, and finishing off with a long walk and exploring on the beach.
Good nourishing food, Earth and Water energy, along with laughs every step of the way, and good conversation, made for a very balanced day.
It’s been such a full couple of months that I was so grateful for the energy boost that aligned perfectly with completion of a project.
You just need some good old fashioned fun in your life, and that to me is silliness and laughter, along with the ability to vulnerably tap into the little girl or boy inside. I engage in this daily with myself, but I cherish the friends that can meet me in my little girl mode because that to me is priceless.
There’s so much seriousness in life. If you can’t laugh at things, or yourself, I think it not only ages you very quickly, but it creates a bitterness in life that will put a damper on anything you want to create.
The photos in this post are from our day – some taken by me and others by Lynne (all photos of us taken by us!).
I hope they bring a smile, warmth, giggles, and a little lightness to your day, perhaps inspiring a little silliness to bubble to the surface for expression and inspire you to immerse yourself in nature, as the child in you will come alive there!
