It seems that people are wound so tight these days that life
becomes miserable and they do not experience much fun.
So what do you consider fun? Each of us have our own ideas about
that. Kids might prefer a vacation to Disney World as their most fun thing to
do. Or a new video game. To an adult, it might be a comfortable place to sit
and to read a book. Or maybe go out to eat with some friends. Or maybe take a
trip. My brothers and I sometimes take a day trip together. For your family,
try a game together. A good one to start with is Left, Center, Right. You can find
it a Wal-Mart for just a few dollars. All ages can play and it is really fun. Some
like hunting and fishing, but my amateur radio buddies and I would prefer to
take our equipment to Manley Mountain and try to make some contacts to some
foreign country. My wife and daughter are having fun collecting backpacks for
The whole idea here is to get you to thinking about what you do to
have fun and how to do it more often.
So here is a challenge. Make a list of what you do or would like
to do to have fun. To help with that, check into the web site of my friend

has created a whole business around fun. His website has tons of ideas about
fun and his latest book, Playful Path, http://www.aplayfulpath.com/timeless-fun/
is a great source of ideas for having fun.
