Taking Yourself To Seriously (Blowing It Scenario #118).

Life’s Too Short, Have Fun, Be Playful, Get Creative.

Sit back, relax, kick off your shoes and throw up your feet. Let me be your leisure coach for a brief minute. Too often in our lives we take ourselves far too seriously. So much so it often comes back to bite us in our ass. It’s a catch 22 of sorts. We may want a certain lifestyle and in that chase we’ll not only take ourselves too serious, we may altogether miss the mark. And while working so hard for what we thought we wanted, trying to hit said mark, we’ll often damage not only our fun and happiness, sometimes even our relationships. Our goal may still grow further out of reach with it. So why not enjoy yourself along the way.

From the sage advice of Michael Scott to Dwight Schrute in the hit classic The Office. Always remember K.I.S.S.- keep it simple stupid. Mildly insulting but great advice. It’s as easy as that, simplify all things. Let go of what others might think of you or even your feelings about how you’ll feel. You may look weird or dumb or maybe your actions will be misinterpreted. Who cares it’s not for them and most of the time people are envious they can’t be as free because of their structured barriers the have placed around themselves.

Play like a kid again it’s where creativity hides. It’s funny how we’re organized to be so structured even in what is supposed to be creative environments. But fail to have any creative thoughts or inspiration in those same environments. It’s not until we shirk the status quo and have a little fun that life opens up to us. No judgments pure freedom. Have fun in your relationships, fun in your work. Life can be so amazingly fun if we just can just except that we don’t always have to take ourselves so serious.
