We may look back to our childhoods with fond memories of the fun we had or look at our children or grandchildren having fun and wish we could be like them. Children seem to ‘get over’ things so quickly; they fall and hurt themselves and a quick hug from mum and a ‘kiss it all better’ and they are off without a care in the world. How great that is. Oh, how we wish we could all be like that again, just let ourselves go, be ourselves and just have plain old fun!

As adults, we seem to forget there is nothing stopping us having fun other than ourselves! We forget, get out of the habit, feel we can’t or shouldn’t now we’re grown-up!

“Even though you’re growing up, you should never stop having fun.”

– Nina Dobrev

We only have one life and if we spend most of it miserable, stressed, worried or frustrated then isn’t this just a waste?

“People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing.”

– Dale Carnegie

We all learn much better and easier when we’re having fun. Adult training has changed to accommodate our needs more than ever and we expect to learn in a more participative environment. Without the confines of being too serious, the world is our oyster; we might feel we can aim for the stars and why not?

“It’s kind of fun to do the impossible.”

– Walt Disney

Being someone who believes in quitting their job or exiting their business if it stops being fun or their passion has fizzled has to be the right way doesn’t it? We only have one life.

“If you’re not having fun, it’s not worth doing.”

– Tommy Bolin

We might consider developing a mantra on who we want to be, reminding ourselves to have fun and not take life to serious before it’s too late!

“I am going to keep having fun every day I have left, because there is no other way of life. You just have to decide whether you are a Tigger or an Eeyore.”

– Randy Pausch
