(a day late) Wednesday Words of Wisdom -- Have Some Fun
"Have some fun. Loosen up a bit. Enjoy life!
We do not have to be so somber & serious. We do not have to be so reflective, so critical, so bound up within ourselves & the rigid parameters others, & often ourselves, have placed around us.
This is life, not a funeral service. Have some fun w/it. Enter into it. Participate. Experment. Take a risk. Be spontanous. Do not always be so concerned wbout doing right, doing the appropriate thing.
Do not always be so concerned about what others will think or say. What they think & say. Do not be afrai of making a mistake. So not be so fearful & proper. Do not inhibit yourself so much.
God did not intend us to be so inhibited, so restricted, so controlled. These repressive parameters are what otehr people have imposed on us, what we have allowed to be done to us.
We were created fully human. We were given emotions, desires, hopes, dreams, feelings. There is an alive, excited, fun-loving child in us somewhere! Let it come out! Let it come alive! Let it have some fun - not just for two hours on Saturday evening. Bring it w/us, let it help us enjoy this gift of being alive, being fully human, & being who we are.
So many riles. So much shame we've lived with. It simply isn't necessary. We have been brainwashed. It is time now to free ourselves, le ourselves go, & enter fully human into a full life.
Don't worry/ We will learn our lesson when necessary. We have learned discipline. We will not go awry. What will happen is that we will begin enjoying life. We will begin enjoying & experiencing our whoe self. We can trust ourselves. We haev boundaries now. We have our program for a foundation. We can afford to experiment & experience. We are in touch w/ourselves & our Higher Power. We are being guided, but frozen, inanimate object cannot be guided. It cannot even be moved.
Have some fun. Loosen up a bit. break a few rules. We won't be punished by God. We do not haev to allow people to punish us. And we can stop punishing ourselves. As long as we're hare & alive, let's begin to live."
"today i will lwt myself have some fun w/life. i will loosen up a bit, knowing i won't crack & break. God, help me let go of my need to be so inhibited, proper, & repressed. help me inject a big dose of life into myself by letting myself be fully alive & human"
