What is Fun?

What is the antithesis of stress and burn out? Last night, I was challenged to believe that on the other end of the spectrum...it's fun. When was the last time you had fun? If we are so steeped in working, pushing ourselves, and denying ourselves sleep, we will never learn what makes us uniquely happy. The sad thing is as we grow older many people lose sight of what is fun.

I challenge you to get out a blank piece of paper. And, write down what is fun to you. Also think about the last time you actually did that activity. Sometimes there is a huge disconnect between what we want and when we actually did that activity. The more you know what is fun the better informed you'll be when you need to kick your frustration and stress in the stomach. Think about what honestly makes you happy, and really take the time to do those things for yourself.
