Are We Having Fun Yet...

Are we too grown to have fun?
Not me, I am truly having a second childhood...
My kids tell me that all the time, with pride in their voices I might add...
They know if they stop by, I might be blaring music and dancing all alone in my house,
Or their dad and I might be laughing so hard at something,
They can hear us when they get to the door...
Even at church I get to laugh,
Last night we had an amazing message,
But the beauty is that our Pastor is so funny,
And sometimes, last night being one of them, my side ached from giggling out loud,
How cool is that, an expository message and laughter...
I remember reading an article last week about sixty year olds having more fun,
Than forty year olds...
Someone said it is because the kids are gone...
I am a decade from sixty, and I am having a blast,
My kids are gone,
But mostly it is because there is nothing to prove to anyone,
No one to impress,
I take care of myself to be healthy to live and to laugh,
These days I take the stairs in order to keep my heart rate up,
Not just for a tight booty,
I eat mostly vegetables,
Because it keeps my skin shiny and allows me to eat those chips and ice cream,
On Fridays,
And I revel in the love of a wonderful, spiritual man who I love and who loves me,
And I take time out to play,
When I get with my young nieces,
I allow them to teach me all the latest dances...
Sometimes I read a book simply because it is fun and will make me laugh out loud,
And when I love,
And laugh,
It comes all the way from my soul and spirit,
Without regard for who is watching,
Or what they may think about my antics,
Because acting grown up is tiresome,
When you are feeling like a kid inside,
So loosen up,
Let your hair down,
Have some fun...

Love and Blessings,

Great post, Angelia! I don't think we're ever too old to have fun. But it does seem like some of us forget how when life gets hectic... This is a great reminder of all the ownderful little things we can do to bring joy into our lives.

I know that you are at a place in your life where you are having big fun. But for me I haven't made it there yet. I know it will come but first I need to do what it is that needs to be done so that I can let my hair hang down and then party like a rockstar (not literally.

All in due time...

it's a mindset, I have enjoyed life from the cradle and will to the grave and I could tell major stories about trials and tribulations, my thing is always to remember, even when brought to my knees I must always look up and get up. Part of the pleasure is in getting there...

Love You,
