Creating Fun

Think back to when you were a child. You were always creating your fun. You were using your imagination all day long. If you have children. Watch them as they play. They can create their own make believe world. They create the players, the scenes and the action.


Creating Fun

When did we stop creating our fun?


I started to rely on alcohol to make me think things were fun. A concentrated manmade substance that delivers a false sense of fun was taking over my life.


The fun was there for a short amount of time, but the pain and shame lasts much longer.


Through the reward of pouring a drink because of our desire, we started "pouring" our fun. Not creating our fun.



Our fun became passive.

We pour the drink.

We sit on the couch.

We eat the food.

We binge watch Netflix.

Rinse, Repeat.



Is that the fun you want in your life?


Think of the fun you can have if you didn't have a headache from the night before.


Think of the fun you can have if you don't wake up late because of lasts nights escapade's.


Think of the fun you can create with your imagination because you aren't filling up your thoughts with negative mental chatter about all of the stupid things you did or said the night before.


Think of the fun you can create because you are wasting your time trying to remember last night.


Try to write down at least 10 fun things you can do.


Can you set time aside this week to do at least one of the fun things?
