Today’s forgiving blog is about having fun.
A few dear friends reminded me today of a great John-Roger quote, “If it’s not fun, why do it?”
I realize that I’ve forgotten to have fun. I’ve been getting so serious about my life – what job am I going to take? Who am I going to be with as a partner? What’s wrong with me? – that I’ve forgotten the most important thing: it’s really the loving that I bring to it that matters.
The details of what I do are not so important.
God, that’s just a continual life lesson for me. So much so that I am having trouble writing this blog, like I’m moving through sludge. Have you ever had that experience?
What I’d like to know is this: what brings you joy? What is it that when you do it, your heart lights up with laughter, with smiles?
You know what it is for me? It’s working for MSIA. It’s writing this blog. It’s doing self-forgiveness. It’s facilitating workshops. It’s talking to a good friend. It’s traveling. It’s going for a good run. It’s visiting a farmers market and then drinking a good cup of coffee!
And you know what? I’m doing all of these things already, with the exception of facilitating workshops. Well, maybe it’s time to get on that one. With a lot of fun through it all (and smiles when I forget this simple truth).
I forgive myself for judging that I need to do it perfect in this world. I give this over to Spirit and I step free, with gratitude.
I love you!
