I totally forgot about this…

I have been creating chaos in my life for months now…

Quite honestly I had no idea why…

Feeling anxious and overwhelmed became a common theme in my daily existence. Starting fights with the people I loved the most. Feeling like I don’t know what to do next and fear of making all the wrong decisions…

Then today I was talking to my soul sister Heather that I just married in the Muir Woods in California…

…this picture pretty much describes the whole wedding…

and she said to me four words that reminded me of something so important in life… maybe the main ingredient in having an amazing life…

Kimberly just have fun. Be playful.

Oh thank goodness… these words felt like a life saver was thrown out to me while I was about to give up and drown at sea… (a little dramatic… but seriously).

I have been living in my fears of the future and totally taking life WAY TOO SERIOUSLY.

Life isn’t as serious as we make it out to be. It is okay I forget too…all the time. This time I forgot for a long, long time. Like deep in the dark trenches forgot. Making everyone around me miserable. Like truly miserable.

If you are one of those people thank you for sticking by me, giving me advice, listening…

I don’t really have much more to say because I am going to go have fun…

Fuck being serious… fun is must more sexy.

Ideas for having more fun:

Silly youtube videos

Make new recipes

Invite a new friend for drinks

Dancing to your favorite music

Running like Phoebe, from Friends, in the woods

Get all dolled up and take yourself to dinner

Zumba class

Girlfriend hangout

Making up raps about your favorite things in life

Laying on a blanket in the sunshine humming your favorite song

Visualizing everything you want in life coming true

Loving on someone you truly care about

Challenge someone to a pushup contest in your office or really anywhere

What are things you can do to have more fun and be less serious?

I would love to hear them… share below! Share this blog with anyone you think could use more fun in their life, we all need a reminder sometimes!!

xoxo

    Love you and fun! I also got so much out of our conversation. We can all be reminded to have more fun. Next time you say, “that was so much fun!” make a note of what it was, as this is different for everyone. Here are a few more ideas… Roll in the mud or dirt, preferably down a hill. Skip instead of walk. Race your friend to the next light post. Read a girly, mushy, trashy novel near water. Ride your bike with no hands. Light all the candles, put on your fancy lingerie, today is as special as any. Talk to a stranger about anything. Oh how I love fun! xoxoxo

  2. Singing about spaghetti and meatballs and rapping Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star is pretty much my favorite.

  3. Yes. Yes. Yes! That literally should be my mantra..”Be less serious. Have more fun. Be silly. Laugh often.”

    Can we set a date soon to have some fun together?

    I could definitely use a bit more fun in my life! <3 you friend!
