I love having fun, probably even a little more so than the next person (as anyone who hung out with me in 2007 can attest to). Lately though, the fun times have been a little lacking. Blame it on the winter blues or my extended period of unemployment, but whatever the case may be, there’s really no excuse. It’s time to bring a little more fun into my life.
Since February 1st, I’ve been making an effort to do something fun everyday. Whether it be learning how to play Umbrella on the Ukulele, giving myself funny manicures, or having friends over to watch the Olympics, I go a little bit out of my way everyday to make myself smile and laugh out loud. It’s a similar idea to Gretchen Rubin’s The Happiness Project, where she spends a year giving herself monthly resolutions aimed at making her happier and improving her life. Instead of the pursuit of happiness though, I’m focusing on the pursuit of fun.
Happy February! Let me know if you want to hang out and do something fun.
