Do you think you are smart or clever?
Well if you don’t know the secret of some of the smartest creatures on earth such as dolphins, whales and elephants; then you might not be as smart or clever as you think!
Often adults take themselves too seriously getting caught up in the details of life. Most adults don’t give themselves permission to play because they may think some of the following ‘reasons’ why they ‘can’t’ or ‘shouldn’t’:
- play is for children
- I don’t have time to play
- playing is immature
- I’ve got bills to pay and children to care for, I need to be responsible
- play is self-indulgent
- etc etc etc
What play entails is feeling that child-like sense of wonder, curiosity and enchantment about life that many people left behind in childhood years.
I’m sharing this with you now because taking some moments to do something playful, joyful or magical CAN and WILL help you in your business, relationships and health. Playing helps us remember what joy feels like, play helps us to loosen up both physically and emotionally AND it opens us to divine inspiration in the form of new ideas for projects, articles, places to go or whatever we do in our lives.
Creative expression is a form of play and play opens us to CREATIVE inspiration. This is one of the many reasons I use creative expression as a tool to help people relax, play, feel joy, feel inspired, have more energy and enthusiasm and so much more. The effects are profound AND it’s so simple! Simple solutions are not usually the solutions that people choose because they seem just too simple…we think, ‘there has to be more to it than that right?’ Because our minds want to over-complicate everything.
- What you do that is playful and how it helps you in your work or business
- What creative tools you might use to play with
What a great video! It sounds so cool to play with the seals, but when I watched the video I realized it also took courage! Way to inspire and it did make me think that I use some of those dumb excuses to not play and I KNOW I need to play more. Thanks for offering that permission to play! Love you! Hugs!
Thanks Karina! The seals inspired me too! They are also mischievous and cheeky which is fun. Happy playing! Lots of love to you too, great to read your comment…Jx
