Do You Still Have Fun?

As my friends and I have gotten older, I’ve noticed more of them are having less fun. What a tragedy! At a time in our lives more of us care a lot less about how others perceive us, why aren’t we acting like it? Where is that footloose and fancy-free attitude?

Getting older does not mean giving up fun.  On the contrary, with so many serious issues going on in the world, we can all use a lot more fun.  You’ve heard it said, “Laughter is the best medicine.”  Honestly, don’t you feel better after a good belly laugh?  When was the last time you laughed so hard your abs hurt the next day?  Talk about better than the gym!  I love times like that.  We need more times like that!

I wonder if many of us lament paradise lost?  Yes, I remember being young and having my whole life ahead of me.  To be honest, given the chance 57-year-old me would have a long sit-down with 17-year-old me and make some major changes.  But you know what?  That’s not going to happen.  This is where I am at 57, and although I’m 40 years down the road, I still have a lot of life ahead of me!  The limitless options I had as a 17-year-old may have diminished, but I can still make changes every day to make my next day better.  So can you!

When was the last time you had fun?  I’m talking reckless-abandon-belly-laugh-jump-up-and-down fun?  If it wasn’t today, why wasn’t it?  I’m finding fun and enjoying it everywhere I can.  I hope you are, too!
