Ask yourself: when is it your turn to have fun? If you don’t pull out your calendar and book time off, small vacations, trips you want to take, time with your loved ones and for your own self-care and healing – then trust me – it will not show up in your life! You must give yourself permission right now to take some time off…and then book it!

Stop putting off enjoying your life because there are no guarantees you’ll be here tomorrow! The truth is you are designing your own life and if you are not having much fun then it’s time to look in the mirror and have a talk with yourself. It’s important to stop the pain and start to schedule some really creative and fun time just for you. If there is a hobby you have wanted to explore; today is the day to make a few phone calls or Google search and get yourself started! Stop putting things off and waiting for a more convenient time….life doesn’t happen that way.

I am a big believer in being in the Now. So since we have no idea when it is our turn, how about giving yourself a break and scheduling some time off and fun adventures for YOU. Let’s not allow life to fall back into regret. Do the things today you know are important to you.

For example, I sit down every morning and write 3 to 5 cards to people I appreciate and love. I don’t want another person in my life to pass away without knowing how much I care about them.

Today, right now, tell the people you love that you love them, send flowers to the living while they can enjoy them! Be nice to yourself and realize that life is too short to sweat the small stuff. Despite what many think, it’s never money or your material possessions that really make you happy; it’s your relationships with others and yourself. Happiness is enjoying life on your terms and doing things that inspire and thrill you.

If you are not currently engaged in a great hobby or you’re putting off something you love doing and that makes you truly happy, please make it a priority and get started… because there is an entire world out there waiting for you to have fun with!
