Yeah, you're probably used to going from one thing to the next: Once one busy season is over, you're planning for the next! Advance preparation is terrific, to be sure, but if you're constantly anticipating the next busy time, when are you just enjoying the moment? Thought so.
So…stop in your tracks. Where are you right now, both emotionally and physically? Look around. What can you enjoy or appreciate or take advantage of right now? Listen. Is there silence? Or the sound of a contented family going about their daily routine? Is there laughter? How can you join in? Take a deep breath. In and out. And again.
Now take all that…and get out of the house and find your fun this autumn. It could be in a long walk with a close girlfriend or in taking a trip to the county fair with the kids. It could be deciding to get goofy with the other moms at the soccer game by becoming impromptu cheerleaders for your kids' team (don't forget the pom-poms). It could be a karaoke bar with your sweetie or deciding that you really do need to test every apple pie at the local bakery -- quality control, you know.
Whatever it is, do it. Decide that this will be the season -- this will be the day -- that you have more fun.
