Remember to Play

My beautiful sister recently graduated Summa Cum Laude from UNCG!  I am so proud of her accomplishments, but I am even more proud of the woman she has grown to be throughout her journey.  In honor of this woman, her amazing personality and her accomplishments, I wanted to share her example of a playful attitude in adulthood...

Life continues, people must grow up, responsibilities build; however, even though this idea of adulthood is inevitable, there is no need to forget the importance of play.  I am not talking about an immature refusal to become an adult, I am instead referring to a successful, productive member of society who holds on to the playful attitude of childhood that brings joy, relieves stress and suggests good still exists in the world.

My sister has that kind of playful attitude about life.  She is always ready for an adventure, loves to laugh and finds ways to enjoy life - even in the busy times.  This playful spirit is not easily found in adulthood as work, stress and responsibilities often take it's place.  Life happens and we rarely have a choice how it unfolds, but we always have a choice in our reaction and our mindset along the way.  Maintaining a playful attitude will open up new opportunities, decrease stress and ensure a lifetime of stories to share with the world!

How do you maintain a playful attitude in adulthood?
