Here I share a fun experience I had yesterday and the effect it had on me as an opening to reader shares on this subject of having fun. I hope you will join so we can create a resource for anyone looking to improve their life.
I made time for fun this weekend. I went on a road trip with my dad to the beautiful Hood Canal in Washington state.
We live nearby and the round trip was around 130 miles. It was a beautiful sunny day and we enjoyed looking at the calm water reflecting late morning sunlight, gorgeous homes and scenery while driving and talking.
Dad told me quite a few of his wild memories which were very entertaining.
We stopped at an antique store where there were numerous things I wanted to buy but I did not because I may be moving in the near future. I did however, buy a few small rose quartz for $1 each.
We stopped at his favorite hamburger joint, Big Bubbas, where we both got hamburgers, onion rings and cherry milkshakes – all delicious. We ate at a nearby park near the water. Many Seagulls came to visit us and share small bites of food with us. It was extremely cold, but worth the experience.
Then we stopped to visit my brother on the way home.
What a nice day that was so good for the soul. Due to Covid, I have been spending a lot of time at home. I’m not one of those that get bored because I have many interests that keep me busy but road trips have always been one of my favorite things to do. I learned to be adventurous from my dad when I was a little girl and it has stuck with me through the years. I am an artist and writer so seeing and experiencing beautiful things inspire me for new works. Getting out and away from the normal routine refreshed me and gave me a new outlook on things currently going on.
It’s so important to make time for fun.
Please share what you do for fun and how it affects you in the comments below. The more that comment, the greater this resource will be for anyone looking to empower themselves and make life better. It’s so important to have many views on an idea.
Here are a few of the products available with my art printed on them (by clicking an item you like, it will take you to the page where it’s available). They’d make great gifts to yourself or someone you love and would help support my dream of becoming a full-time writer and artist. Any purchase would be SO appreciated, but if you don’t want to or can’t, that’s totally fine. Just stopping by and reading my blog is a huge support so please do not feel obligated.
