But somewhere down the line, someone informed us that what we thought was fun, and what gave us joy, really wasn't joy. We were told that the simplicities in life no longer had value and that to have fun we needed to go out, spend money, be loved for who we aren't, and come home and complain about ourselves, until we're reminded of how beautiful and happy we are. "Swings are for children, slides are for babies. Puzzles are for the immature, and sidewalk chalk? Don't even get me started!" was what we heard from someone we deemed as happy. But they were handed down the same tidbit of information once, that crushed their true happiness.
Challenge: Go sit on a swing set for a little bit. Sit at the top of a slide. And once you finally remember how to have fun, let loose. Those little kid actions inside of you are still there, untouched, and waiting to bring you an uncontrollable amount of happiness again, like when you were a care-free kid.
