What is play? Ask the children. They’ll tell you that play is anything that is fun! It does not matter what it is. If you enjoy it, if it leaves you smiling and feeling emotionally energized, it is play.
Lighten up. What does play look like for you? Fun and laughter? Smiles and song? Jokes and kidding around? Life doesn’t all have to be so serious.
Nor does play have to be a conscious effort. It can be the funny comment that lightens a heavy and serious atmosphere.
Allow yourself to play. Give yourself the gift of fun! Don’t get caught up in ‘seriousity’ for too long.
Think of this life as Soul Games.
