Fun is my daily responsibility!

Fun is important to my health. I have a demanding career and family responsibilities and balancing these two extremely important parts of my life is difficult at times. However, I understand that

making time for fun is essential to living a happy, fulfilling life. For this reason, I make it a point to inject a dose of fun into my everyday life.

Each morning, I wake up a few minutes earlier than usual in order to indulge in my favorite activities. Sometimes I go walking

with my partner or head to the local coffee shop with my best friends. Other times, I simply craft at my kitchen table or watch my favorite television shows that I record just for this purpose.

Some people may say that it is selfish to devote so much time to myself, but I highly disagree. I have a family and responsibilities  but I am more than a spouse, parent or a professional; I am still an individual!

I deserve to indulge in my favorite activities and have fun living my life!

In addition to my personal fun time, I try to plan activities that the entire family will enjoy.


I understand that my family is constantly evolving. Therefore, it is important that we are diligent about rediscovering our individual interests and our favorite activities as a family.

Today, I loosen up a bit. I am comfortable with having more days of youthful fun. This is what keeps my spirit alive and my relationships strong!
