At the pool, my youngest begs me to go down the water slides with her.
I have that feeling that I’m too old to do this sort of thing. But then I see something that changes my mind.
The Italian Mama goes down the slides whether her children are with her or not. She does it for her own fun! I watch her climb the steep steps in her red bathing suit and then emerge in a great splash at the bottom of the slide.
I follow her to the slides, challenged and inspired. I remember her telling me that in any given day, 80% of life is work and only 20% is fun. We want to tip the balance in favor of more fun.
On this day, I think we did.
Journal: How are you going to increase the fun today?
