What do you play in life?
It doesn’t have to be outside. You can play inside your house, though that’s a bit dangerous. Do you actually play? Do you do something else? I don’t usually play, but when I really want to, I wouldn’t have the time. So either way, I just never really play. Life gets a bit tiring already. What’s the point if it wastes time and saps your energy along with it? You could do something much more useful to help you go to college or collect experience to create a business to earn lots of money later on.
Okay! That sounded boring.
Who wants to work every day to reach your goal of leading a successful life? That makes life actually a bit boring. I would not want that. If life was all work and no play, then we’d all be dead from overworking. Me, dying? No no, no thank you. Especially from working. I would from other things. Like drowning. Wait, that turned a bit dark.
Either way, life can be full of seriousness, fun, or both. I would rather lead a life full of fun, but I need to work to have fun, so the choice would be both.
What do you do for fun? I like to read for fun. Most people wouldn’t do that. They’ll exclaim, Oh it’s too many words, I don’t like to do that, That’s boring, or whatever. They’ll probably go on their phones instead, posting their story on Snapchat.
Well, what do you consider fun? Some people don’t like playing outside, some people do. Let’s see… the outside things you could do would be: handball, hiking, walking, playground, tag, capture the flag, flag football, soccer, basketball, bicycling, chalk, four corners, gardening, all things exercise and involving a lot of energy. Some people don’t like staying inside, while others do. Inside things, for example: reading, chess, guitar checkers, interior decorating, puzzles, comics, origami, piano, something involving less energy, and more on using your brain. By the way, no technology, so no phones, video games, binge-watching, or anything else. This is a time to bond with others together, not through a screen or call.
Are you an extrovert? An introvert? That’s okay. Just play with nothing in mind. No stress, no school, no job, no work. That sounds pretty nice, right? Children play because they just want to have fun. The rest of us should have fun too.
I want start and end my days in fun. That would make me happy. But, the truth is, less kids are able to play, having to learn and stay at home because their parents want them to. Then what would happen? Would people become less happy from it? More and more young adults have anxiety, stress, and depression. This happening from their suffocating environment, and feeling like they can’t do anything, that they can’t be free. That they can’t do whatever their heart desires. To let go of sad feelings and bad emotions to adrenaline and enjoyment and happiness.
So, right now, at this moment, do you feel like playing? Are you feeling down right now, for many other reasons? That you can’t do anything no matter what you try? That you wish for this moment to end? To never appear again, to not happen for the rest of your life. To end? Or… Do you feel like stretching your wings up to the sky in this feeling of euphoria that you hope this day, this hour, this minute, this moment, would never end? What do you do to make you feel that way?
