The List

Saturday, September 04, 2010

I was shopping in Hobby Lobby yesterday when I saw a poster with what I thought was an excellent list of things to do:

1. Say Something Silly
2. Laugh Till It Hurts
3. Take a Risk
4. Tell a secret
5. Sing Out Loud
6. Rock the Boat
7. Shake Things Up
8. Flirt with Disaster
9. Buy Something Frivolous
10. Color Outside the Lines
11. Cause A Scene
12. Order Dessert
13. Get Carried Away
14. Have a great day!

I thought some of these were a great reminder to not take ourselves so seriously and to have fun with each day. I know sometimes we think that the world will end because we had one bad meal and we should just give up. In the moments where I can think more clearly, I wonder what is up with that? So what...one bad meal? Get over it. One mistake doesn't usually spell DISASTER...it just spells ONE MISTAKE.

So today I'm going to a lunch with friends and I signed up to bring the dessert/fruit. So I made a fruit dessert - grapes, cherries, fresh pineapple, bananas, greek strawberry flavored yogurt, honey, and cinnamon. Fortunately for me there are other sparkers there, and a couple of fitness buffs so no one will really mind that I didn't bring cheesecake or pie.

I'm taking today to laugh, sing out loud, color outside the lines and wear something frivolous. What will you do to shake it up and lighten your mood? Here's a picture of my daughters goofing around....will you celebrate today with a free spirit?
