Maximal Fun

Monday, October 07, 2013

" You cannot learn to skate without being ridiculous. The ice of life is slippery." George Bernard Shaw

Life is difficult but it can be a hell of a lot of fun. Sometimes we miss out though, why? because we don't want to look foolish or dumb when we try something new.

Well what is wrong with us why are we sidelining our lives.? Why are satisfied with simple and safe. Well, because we are afraid someone will laugh and find us silly.

The silly part is we are cutting ourselves short. We are living a half life. Every time we choose to not do something we are giving up part of our souls, our hearts and our strength.

Why are giving up thinking someone may laugh? , Well someone might find us courageous or inspiring or at the very least intriguing. So what if we look silly , everyone does now and then . Embrace your silliness, it means your human.

As soon as I get the okay from my doctor to exercise again I am going to learn to run on a treadmill. Then I am going to take that Zumba class my friend is always begging me to do, since she teaches. Yes me, two left feet and no rhythm . Even If I look silly it is still something I want to do.

No more half life for me, No more leaving stuff undone and for others. No more wallflower and watching life from the sidelines.

Let me know what silly thing you accomplished how strong and mighty it made you feel . Did you remember how silly you looked or what you accomplished later?

    Go and enjoy the class Joanne. Something new should
be a lot of fun for you. emoticon
I put on a Greek CD yesterday and just danced all
around the house. I thought that if anyone could
see me now but thought who cares. I had so much
fun and I thought back to all the festivals that I
used to go to and just dance with pure joy. I will
be playing it again and dancing especially n days
when I can't go to exercise class. Have a great day.

    A long time ago, I remember I felt silly going out for a walk by myself always wanted someone with me, forced myself to get out there, now I love going out by myself, love the solitude.
Can't wait to hear about your classes. emoticon

    Good for Jo - that sounds like a fun class - go for it to me life was meant to be silly - for instance , remember I told you I had those shoes dyed black to match my dress fro the Wedding well , the night of the Reception its poured buckets , it just rain. The reception was held at a Salt Creek Golf Club and we had privet section to Tee off Golf Balls - so of course I participated in the Sport - when took off my shoes the Dye turned my feet Black ! That did not stop me - I just laughed - enjoy yourself Jo - Hugs Karen
