This blog is for women who want to rewrite their lives and find a renewed sense of purpose so they can make a difference in the next phase of their journeys.
So often we get caught up in striving for our goals. We think taking time to play is frivolous and wasteful. This is a misconception.
Taking time for play was a huge challenge for me. I used to spend leisure time worrying about other things I should be accomplishing with those hours.
One day I realized I was becoming very one-dimensional. All I could talk about was business. Small talk eluded me. Although I had always loved writing and art, I had strayed far from those pleasurable pursuits.
I started taking time (without guilt) to relax and play. I joined a walking group to get my exercise and socialize at the same time. I went to events that had nothing to do with networking. I joined my local museum. My enjoyment of life expanded exponentially and to my surprise, I was still able to accomplish the same amount of work!
I challenge you today to do one fun thing. Next week, do another. Continue to try new, relaxing adventures and expand your joy in life!
