Have you ever taken the time to watch a child? Children are spontaneous. They move around quickly, running from place to place. They take joy in just being alive.

We take life far too seriously. We all need to have more fun and play in our lives. Life is a blast it is time to experience it fully. Children wake up rested and usually have no worries at all. They get fed when they are hungry (for the most part) and laugh when they are happy.

My youngest child, a daughter is easily embarrassed, and I embarrassed her often. If I want to talk to a stranger in the grocery store I do. This makes my daughter uncomfortable. She is still concerned what others think of her. I love to speak to strangers and help put a smile on someone’s face by giving them a heartfelt complement.

Some people rarely get a complement and I am enjoying and loving life so I want to share that with others. The more joy I feel the more I want to share it with others. I have also begun to laugh from the depth of my soul. When I do something I do it with all my heart – never half-assed. In other words if I make a funny and crack myself up, I will laugh out loud.

I don’t care who hears me and that is embarrassing to my daughter. I don’t care. That is her issue not mine. I don’t pussy-foot through life anymore. I make conscious steps and live with awareness. I will not hide my light under a bushel because it makes others uncomfortable. That is their business not mine. What others think of me is none of my concern. Nor should it be yours.

Children are like that. They enjoy playing at life. They do not take things too seriously. Neither should we. Life is short have a ball! We are meant to have fun on a daily basis. It does not matter what job you have, what profession you are in, you do not need to work at a spiritual job to be living a spiritual life. I used to believe that was the case, but no longer.

It is the way you do your job that matters. Do you do your job to the best of your ability with a good attitude? That is the key. Or do you gossip about others and bad mouth everyone in your department? Be an asset not a liability. Have fun with what you do. Give it your all and play. You will feel much happier as a result. Play is a necessary part of life. You can play anywhere. Just ask a child.
