Sometimes you gotta make your own fun.Dawn Kotzer
Ever felt like this? Somebody telling you exactly where to stand? what to do? how to be?
Where’s the fun in that? There isn’t any.
One of these boys was my grandfather, and he knew how to have fun! He and his siblings would make fun out of anything, anywhere, any time. Their childhood practical jokes were legendary…at least according to Little Gramps. There’s not a trace of that in this photo though.
Sometimes my life feels a little like this family photo…rigid, black and white, ideas wilting on the vine like the flowers in the little girls’ hand.
So I hit pause…take a moment to have some fun, to make my own fun…create something out of nothing. I play a practical joke on the To-Do list.
Let the smallest possible thing spark your imagination. Squint, do some jumping jacks, look at something upside down and backwards, or do what I do…go jump in the lake. Literally. See what comes of it…take a look at my new cat.
Seems to me that Little Gramps would’ve had a good laugh at this one.
