“What did you do for FUN today?”, I asked the person who had just shared their woes with me. “FUN? What FUN? I don’t have enough time to do the things I need to do. Forget FUN.”☹
I have coined a FUN life principle: DysFUNctional people are those who have skipped the FUN during the daily FUNctions of life.
What did you do for FUN today? Or yesterday? Or, when was the last time you did a FUN thing? A FUN activity I enjoy is running; reading FUNny stories is another one. (Did both this morning.) Maybe you enjoy/have FUN reading a new book, meditating in God’s company, working with flowers in your garden, playing a musical instrument, singing, sitting by the window with a cup of steaming coffee in hand, etc., etc.
A FUN activity is one that you enjoy doing, and when you’re done, you emerge energized, calm, and clear-headed, to take on other things you need to do. If this is true, and I believe it is, then doing FUN things daily is not an option but a necessity. If you don’t, you are dysFUNctional.
The Holy Bible has been teaching this for centuries: A joyful heart brightens one’s face, but a troubled heart breaks the spirit. (Proverbs 15:13) A joyful heart is good medicine, but low spirits sap one’s strength. (Proverbs 17:22)
Have FUN today😊
