Chapter 11, Page 5, Book 18

To love what you do and feel that it matters — how could anything be more fun

Katherine Graham

Today I’m thankful for fun

Getting there isn’t half the fun — it is all the fun.

Robert Townsend

All work and no play would make for a very dull me.  Without time off from a work. I would become both bored and boring.  Fact is, I don’t remember ever having a boring day in my life.

For me, fun is a state of mind, it’s the zest of life.  Having fun and findlng ways to smile and laugh more contributes to the development of a quality known as resilience.  Resilience enables us to cope better with the tough things in life. 

Fun shouldn’t be something we add to our lives, it should be a way of life.  Doing something good should not be done for a reward but for goodness’ sake.

On my thankful list for today:

6493. for a donut to start the day
6494. for a great day trip to take
6495. for a loving family that takes lots of pictures 

If you are not having fun you are doing something wrong.

So true that life would be very dull if we didn't have any fun. And the good thing about fun is it can happen without costing a lot of money :)

That Robert Townsend's a brilliant sort of fellow! I'm unsure when I grew up -- away -- from living every day with zest and FUN. 'Pretty sure they're still in there, somewhere. (Come out, come out, wherever you are!)
