One thing that we should all be reminded of whether we’re single, in a relationship, divorced, married, or it’s complicated, yes I’ve covered all of the Facebook statuses, is that we should be having fun. We’re often programmed to think that if circumstances around us aren’t in alignment with fun then we’re doomed to be miserable. Simply not true, fun is always there for the taking if you’re willing to create it and move past your moods.
Our moods can shout out at us “Waaaaaaaa, I’m not in the mood to have fun!!” Or “Oooooo this really sucks right now.” However its really up to us if we choose to agree with these guys or not. Often times if there are circumstances that have me down, I do my best to get creative and find fun somewhere. It could be singing in a crazy voice while I’m driving, or I could look in the mirror and say the most outlandish, hysterical thing that I crack myself up over. Point is, I have to actively “do” something to show my mood that it really isn’t that much fun being in the dumps and that laughter and fun are far more appealing.
When I push myself past the fuddy dud’s (word for the downer moments) I find that my atmosphere around me changes. One of those really powerful tools that we all have if we’ll just take the time to use it! So what your boyfriend is being a butthole, that doesn’t mean you have to be in a crappy mood?! So you’re still single, well why not be that happy single who knows how to have a lot of fun, that’s really attractive. I have a friend of mine who went through a break up and rather than sitting and remaining depressed, he’s resorted to going to the gym and having a blast in life. Guess what, it makes him far more attractive for it!
Okay so maybe your marriage has become very mundane, then get off your couch and play in the sand, jump in the pool with your clothes on, or without, whichever makes you have more fun! Just went through a divorce? Trust me this doesn’t mean that the rest of your life is set up for potato chips and Sex and the City reruns. Go buy that outfit you’ve been eyeing, say yes to that watch you’ve been drooling over and enjoy every minute of it! Have fun celebrating yourself.
Listen we only have one life to live, YOLO baby so be sure that in this life you have plenty of F U N!!!!!!!!!!
