What is tranquil fun you ask?
I can tell you what it is to me. A hot day, a cold drink, and hanging out with people you fancy. Today, I got to do that 3 times over!
After all my hard work on myself these last 28 days, I have to say moving into the close of this journey, having fun really never crossed my mind. How silly is that? I thought about my intentions, my yoga practice, my spiritual practice, meditation, cleaning and organizing, gardening, cooking, but fun never once crossed my mind.
Fulfillment did cross my mind and all the many questions that go into that, but fun did not. I guess one more magical ingredient to add to all this. Good ole’ kick in the pants laughter and smiles. It is some of the best medicine for the soul.
When was the last time you had fun? Like a smile was glued to your face?
When was the last time to surrendered to a desire that would improve your life, not hinder it?
When did you take the option of releasing stress and to-do’s for something you really wanted to do?
Some of us are better at this than others. No matter what, it is OK, but don’t forget to make it a part of your bucket list like me. I really like having fun with my kids, and seeing them have fun, but as a parent, it is hard to relax into the fun when you have so much responsibility to take care of someone too.
So where is the tranquil fun?
For me, less responsibility in that moment, and more relaxation. Just being able to enjoy the moment, but knowing everyone else is too in their own way. Sharing moments with people I love and trust. Knowing I can be myself in those moments. Understanding I am safe and secure, and all is well.
I would say tranquil fun is being at ease with myself, and enjoying the moment, not wanting to be anywhere else.
Give yourself permission now to schedule something you know will be fun and laid back in these last four days. Close this out on a high note, and focus on your successes and happiness. I wish you all the happiness in the world and more!
