The Joy Of Letting Go “Look at me! Look at me! Look at me NOW! It is fun to have fun. But you have to know how.” - Dr. Seuss
Have you ever felt like you have forgotten how to have fun? That you used to laugh, feel free? Sometimes we get so caught up in our world as parents that we forget that we used to thrive in nonsense. At least I did… In fact, the thing that most attracted me to my husband was his uncanny ability to have fun in just about any situation.
So, instead of taking the spectator stance, as I often do at children’s birthday parties, I decided to don those cool orange socks at Sky Zone and jump to my heart’s desire. For $11 I jumped, laughed and even peed a little… And, had a great time doing it!
Yes, I played it safe despite my kids’ best efforts to get me to bounce off the wall.
Yes, I was breathless by the time I bounced off the mat.
Yes, there were many times when I was the only adult jumping.
But, I had a great time and most importantly, my kids saw me having high energy fun. They experienced me not as Mommy but as Tracy. My daughter, jumping beside me, giggled with delight as we alternated mimicking each other’s jumping techniques. I must say, I am quite the pro jumper now and am seriously considering a gig with Cirque de Soleil…
Wishing you well.
