A sweet sojourn from the busyness of life.

This blog is a journal of forays into my loves of creative writing,
humor, and photography. It is a departure from daily stresses.
Some of life's greatest journeys are detours.

The real act of discovery is not in travelling to distant lands
but rather in seeing with new eyes. - Marcel Proust

Putting the Fun back in Functional

I love this video. It is a reminder of the power of of attitude in whatever we undertake. You have heard the term KISMIF (Keep it simple, make it fun) It seems the longer I travel on the Earth the more I see the value in this simple concept. We all have the heart of that playful child!
So I say put more fun in your days! Find the awe and wonder in the world, it may take a little doing these days.

I am putting this concept to work in my life. Yep! I am beginning by continuing my attitude adjustment by replacing my "have to" with "get to" . I realize that this is a personal sales job that requires a high level of marketability in some cases because many of your "have to" things are quite crappy and it isn't easy to convince yourself that it is fun. I know this! As I wrote about in previous renderings, I am working on this with my "less jiggle to the wiggle" fitness campaign which is coming along, I keep repeating snappy sayings like "It's fun to run or "If it's meant to be I'd be a size three" I am making progress, I know it is a journey.

I am putting this concept to work in another area of my life; cleaning.( See photo) Today I "get to" clean. Wow I am pumped I am ready to go! I just can't wait to spend the day chasing those dust bunnies! Laundry...I embrace you....bathrooms...I adore you! Vacuum...I am ready to begin our joyful dance! Hey this is working! I feel better already!
Hmmm time for a break!

Let me know how this works for you! Remember it's all about putting the FUN in Functional!
