It's supposed to be fun

As I sat here thinking about what to put in a blog post - after weeks of traveling, reading, and horses (but not much writing), I saw this pic I took at the USPC East Coast Champs a couple of weeks ago. I love the focus of the kid, the moving pony, the reach for the mug - but mostly, I love how it reminds me that we do these things because they are fun and we love doing them.

I love to write, although I don't always remember that I love to write because it is fun. As we get older, we do so much because we have to, need to, are expected to, yada yada. It's almost unbecoming to admit that you do the things you do because you love them and find them fun.

So here's hoping you find the fun in your daily job, whatever it might be. If you have to do these things, why not make them fun, too?

  1. We all have to LAUGH more. That's why fun is important. Did you know it comes from the Old English fonnen, which means "to dupe?" I guess practical jokes have been around FOREVER and are the forerunners of more popularly considered "fun" activities. Right now, I'm gonna go make cleaning the kitchen fun.
