In my dreams I am puttering around barefoot in my beach cottage, arranging multicolored hydrangeas from my yard in beautiful vases and taking leisurely naps on my hammock while birds serenade in the background. Don't we all strive to be barefoot and fancy free? How many days out of the year do we truly spend when we are not in a harried state of mind? Not enough.
It's possible that the only time some people are barefoot and fancy free is one week a year on their vacation, (and even then it takes them a few days into their vacation to begin to unwind and enjoy themselves)! Why are we strung so tight? How can we get back some of the carefree playfulness from our youth?
This past year has been a struggle for me. Emotionally. Physically. Financially. Do I have everything sorted out? No. What has it taught me? It has taught me that perseverance is key to creating the life you wish to live, but it's not going to happen overnight. All worry and no play makes for a miserable existence. Fun doesn't just come knocking at your door, you have to seek and create your own fun. You can worry endlessly and toss and turn all night, or you can choose to believe that you are part of a bigger plan and it's all going to turn out great in the end.
I'm barefoot as I type and I'm fancy free at the moment so I'll take it!
When do you feel the most carefree and playful?
