Increase the Fun

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.

One thought on “Increase the Fun

  1. Thanks for the post. Yes, we adults should remember to have more fun. It helps our children also. Never mind that I completley messed up my back a few years back on a water slide…but it has healed up and I would go down one again (just not that poorly designed one that killed my back) Best Wishes
