How would you rate your entrepreneur life right now? Do you need to schedule a time to have fun! I recently heard someone say that while doing dishes one night, his daughter asked him to come play. He said he needed to finish the dishes first. She responded, “your life isn’t very fun, is it?”
As adults, especially the one leading the entrepreneur life, can all relate to this. So, ask yourself, “when was the last time you had FUN?” I mean the type of fun that is unplanned, purely clean fun! The type where laughter was involved and stress seemed to disappear for a moment. Hopefully, that answer is an easy one and gets a quick response! If not, I encourage you to put “have fun” on your entrepreneur life agenda.
Feeling like a Kid
A friend of ours installed a zip line for their son’s birthday. They started installation close to dark so sadly it wasn’t completed until after the kids had gone to bed. It was extremely dark when her husband felt it was installed safely. The box recommended an adult test it out before letting kids use it, so they did. Let me tell you, they had the most fun! She said it was thrilling to feel like a kid again zipping through the air in total darkness. They laughed and squealed, creating a lasting memory.
Surprise your Kids!
Pool time with kids is frantic when they are little. Your sole goal is to make sure no one drowns. It’s very stressful. Having this responsibility can put a kink in your fun since your eyes must be looking 23 different places at once. There was one night we went to the pool when my husband got home from work. Like a ticking clock, I took my perch and watched the kids. Suddenly I remembered he was there and he could watch them so I could have some fun!
To my kid’s astonishment, as well as my own, I took a running leap and cannon balled into the pool! I could hear their laughter as I went in and came back up. It was awesome! I will never forget the looks on their faces. Priceless!
A truly balanced YOU has fun! Memories created by spontaneous fun are the most cherished. It does our minds, hearts, and bodies some good when we relax, play and have fun. I think it’s easy for parents to get in the role of being a spectator because we get into the habit of being on safety duty around the clock. However, if the opportunity arises, try being a participant. Rather than watch your kids play capture the flag, be their biggest threat to defeat. Go ahead, let your guard down, close the laptop, load a nerf gun and HAVE FUN!
