It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

Chapter 11, Page 12, Book 12
Fun is fundamental. There is no way around it. You absolutely must have fun. Without fun, there is no enthusiasm. Without enthusiasm, there is no energy. Without energy, there are only shades of gray.
#12 of 30 things I'm thankful for in November
I am thankful to have had many fun times, great memories, and people to share them with.
We need to take back the fun that we are given on a daily basis: the fun of crunchy cereal, of cold milk and hot coffee, of birdsong and dog wag, of smiles and waves, of warm blankets and light reading, Eating lunch in the park, attending to a vegetable garden in your backyard, or watching the sunset are just a few simple ideas for how you can have some fun on a daily basis.
Never be too busy to laugh, or too serious to smile. Instead, surround yourself with fun people and don’t get caught up in your own sense of importance.A good cup of coffee when I first wake. Time spent playing with my one of my grand children . Cooking a nice meal in the evening. These may not seem terribly exciting, but they are some of the simple pleasures I enjoy in life. If you slow down for just a moment and take the time to appreciate these ordinary events, life becomes instantly more enjoyable.
Doing something that we love is a gift to ourselves and others as well. When we create happiness and joy in our lives, we become happier people, we get more done, we become more motivated and we spread the joy around to others. Get out of the habit of just doing things because they need to be done and let yourself have fun.
Doing something we loves gives us zest for living and the ability to laugh and have fun. Most people lack enough FUN in their lives because they don't plan to have fun. They don't have a game plan! We've heard about a balanced life, which means play as much as you work as much as you eat as much as you sleep. Take care of your body, mind and spirit as another means of balance in your life It's all up to us. We need to become aware of the truly fun things that make us happy.
Having fun needs no explanation, it is its own excuse.
