Many years ago, I did go through a period of time where my work wasn’t necessarily inspiring. However, I always believed it would eventually get better. Rule number one: if you don’t like your reality then change it.
In life you can decide to be an active participant or not. You can appreciate being part of the community and enjoying a shared experience or instead decide to isolate yourself from others. You can go about thinking everyone has an agenda or be more open minded. You can act like a crank or try and make other people (especially kids) happy. You can spend your time, checking boxes and doing what you think you should be doing or fully embracing the moments and making them special. You can grow up and act like and adult or hold onto the threads of childhood through childlike behavior. You can make everything about your or take into consideration the feelings and needs of others. You can enjoy the passage of time and milestones that occur throughout the year or not.
Choosing to seek and have fun is a conscious choice. Rarely does it just happen. We all have moments of spontaneous joy we can remember, but this is the exception not the rule. I encourage you to make having fun a filter in your daily, weekly and monthly activities.
