As we grow older and embrace the multitude of responsibilities that adulthood brings, we often bury a part of ourselves along the way. In my childhood days, each day gave me a new adventure in the form of playing and learning. The fun I had was very different. It was spontaneous, unplanned and exuberant. Having fun for the pure delight of it make you act silly or giddy but part of having fun is letting go and acting like a kid again. ~ A little fun can help you fight stress and lead to a creative inspiration. As I look at some of my old pictures way way back, it made me stop, think and made me realize one thing ~ I miss the child in me. Kids know that fun doesn't have to be carefully planned like you need to do a schedule. So....here are some things that perhaps I can try...Why not go to the nearest playground and spend some time on the swings? (I love swings but too bad, playground is toooo far from my place! I miss Enchanted Kingdom! Actually they don't have swings there but I miss Anchor''s Away ~ it's like a huge SWING..hahaha) Or shoot crumpled paper basketballs into your wastebasket during a slow afternoon. Actually it's evening for me since I'm a remember? (I tried this already but it's very tiring. Honestly, I'm not good with shooting or catching things and I know everybody knows it. I always end up picking up the papers and throw it directly at the wastebasket). Well, my point is can come from veering away from your normal routine, even in small things. We can also do something we haven't done since childhood ~ for me is to paint with my fingers and Piñata!
Finding fun in unexpected places is the kind of joy no one can take away from you. A little fun can go a long way toward lifting your spirit, especially when you find yourself doing something tad wacky. ~ There are lessons to be learned in doing so, about staying carefree and doing something that makes you laugh every day.Till nex time, Written by chinad0ll31 Permalink Blog about this entry Add to del.icio.us digg this

the pinata used to be your email signature.. and it brings me back to the time that our friendship is still on its infancy stage.. your child like attitude draw me near to you,.. specially when one of your closest friend ask us to look after you since she will not be around to be with you.. ( nung ibinilin ka ni ann sa amin.. aol anniv nun) I don't know but I felt so accountable during that time.. you have to outgrow being a kid or else you will not become a manager.. you'll end up a kiddager.. bwahaha corny ko talaga. gooofy goover yeeeaaaahhhh!! break it down.
