life design 101.

dont forget to play

Wanna live a happier life? Here’s one thing you can do today that is guaranteed to make a difference in how you live: take five minutes and do something different from your normal routine. Go outside and sit in the grass. Drive a different way home from work. Smile at a stranger and ask how her day is going…

Recognizing the beauty that is already here is the first step to creating more of it in your life. Stepping out of your routine is the first step to noticing.

Don’t forget to open your eyes to the magic that is surrounding you. Right now and all the time.

  • I love this! I try to do this everyday. It takes you out of your “normal” mindset and lets you see the world in a new way. It also helps you enjoy the little things like the smell of grass, taste of a new food, a tidbit of someone else’s life as told by them… The possibilities are endless. :)

  • I love this post! As Play Date organizers for women, we believe in the importance of PLAY in their well being. Taking a break from our stressful life via play is essential. Fill your life with enchantment, adventure, and excitement, you’ll be know more about yourself, and make yourself and the people you know happier.

    “Do something everyday, regardless. Nothing will happen unless you first initiate a process of cause and effect. This starts with an action. Reawaken the possibility of possibility. Reawaken it with play.” — David Horvitz

  • Yesterday I said to a dear friend of mine, “Why don’t we play & sing anymore?” We are both in our 50’s. Then this morning I came across this post…love it and take it as a sign that I need to start playing again! Thank you!
