What are you doing FUN today?

When was the last time you had FUN?

Can you think of something you want to do that is FUN?

I ask this question a lot to my clients and more times than not I get a blank stare or stark silence as the answer. In the multitude of to-dos we all have heard that self care inevitably needs to be a priority. Fun needs to be at the top!

Why stop and have fun? Because it gives you natural joy, it makes you smile, it usually changes the pace, all things we need.

When was the last time you had FUN with your husband?

Don’t tell me you don’t have enough time. Don’t tell me yall don’t know how to have fun together anymore. Don’t tell me you don’t want to spend the money. I don’t accept excuses.

Think back to when you were dating, what did yall do for fun? Remember how it used to be a priority, back when you liked your husband more…….see the connection….fun + together = liking your spouse again.

When was the last time you had fun with your kids?

No I don’t mean the hours you are in the car together going from baseball practice, to the birthday party, to going to see Mimi. I mean when did you have fun with them. As in putting down the cell phone and chasing bubbles together. As in playing a game together. As in having a dance party in the living room or as Dillon often requests, family night at Dave & Busters.

When was the last time you had fun?

If you cannot come up with a good answer it is time to make FUN a priority again.
