So have you ever been somewhere doing something you don’t want to be doing? We all have and I’m guessing you have to. Maybe you are single and about to go to an event but don’t want to or maybe you are just stuck waiting on a long line that you don’t want to be on. It is easy to think about how much life sucks at that moment and how your life SHOULD be better. But struggling against reality creates a lot of disappointment and pain so I propose that rather than SHOULD-ing all over yourself you do something different.
The next time you are tempted to struggle against what is happening at that moment I propose that you accept where you are, surrender to your circumstances and look for the fun. You get more of what you focus on so you might as well focus on fun!
For example, if you committed to attend an event you’d rather not attend perhaps you can focus on how excited you are to listen to your favorite song on the way over or if you’re stuck on a long line perhaps you can look for a silly magazine to entertain you. We always have two choices, one is that we can resist reality and complain and the other is that we can surrender to reality and look for ways to enjoy it. I promise you that the more you ask yourself, “where’s the fun?” the more moments of happiness you’ll have. At the end of the day, isn’t that what we all want???
Now I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below, how do you add more fun to your life?
