The mission of Be Unlimited is to encourage you to reach your highest potential. That includes: building a better mindset, setting goals for yourself and working toward them, discovering how you can have a positive impact in the world around you, and so much more. Ultimately, this blog is meant to help you choose the path of possibilities— to create an unlimited life.
But let’s not forget about fun. Some people do. And a life without fun is…well, it’s no fun.
Kids are encouraged to have fun. But eventually, we reach an age where we are told that it’s time to get serious. Depending on who you are, the idea of making time for fun might seem like a bad thing. But it’s not.
There is a time for everything— a time to focus on your education, a time to plan and work toward goals, a time to aspire to be a better you, etc. There should also be a time for fun. Creating a balance for all things can be a challenge, yes. But it’s necessary because all the pieces of ourselves fit together like the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. If any piece is missing, then that puzzle won’t be complete.
There are many aspects to life that are serious and require serious focus. As you get older and your responsibilities increase, you will understand this more. If you’ve abandoned fun along the way (for whatever the reason), this will be the perfect time to reconnect with it.
Better yet, try not to abandon fun in the first place.
I work very hard…and I work a lot. But I always make time for fun— by fun, I don’t mean spending a day at an amusement park. Sure, that’s fun, too. What I mean is that fun doesn’t always have to be a thrilling experience. Fun, for me, is spending time doing the things that I enjoy. Recently, I’ve started to rebuild a Hot Wheels collection I had as a kid (some things you never outgrow). This is fun for me. And spending time enjoying that fun— whether it’s for 10 minutes or an hour— helps me work better when I return to my other responsibilities. It’s a balancing act, but it is possible.
Hopefully after reading this you’ll be inspired to add more fun to your life. The opportunities are unlimited. =)
