“Time flies whether you’re having fun or not. The choice is yours.” – unknown
This summer is flying by! It’s hard to believe we are about to start the month of August already and school will be starting again in a few short weeks. It definitely feels like this summer is going by way too fast! So today I just want to remind everyone that we all need to enjoy every moment left of this summer before it’s gone!!!
It seems weird to even suggest that summer is almost gone this year because I feel like I haven’t been able to really relish it yet with any lazy days lying out at my swimming pool in the backyard. We have been traveling almost every week since June started, jumping from one trip to the next without much down time in between. But as crazy as it has been so far this summer, we have made fantastic memories with many amazing people. And as much work as it has been to host so many trips, we have definitely had some incredibly fabulous fun as well.
I love that quote: “Time flies whether you’re having fun or not. The choice is yours.” because it reminds me not to let time go by without choosing to have fun with it. I think it’s really easy to get caught up in the “doing” to the point that we aren’t actually “enjoying”, and the only way to prevent that from happening is to make a conscious choice that we are going to make sure we are having fun with whatever we are doing.
When we make the decision to be having fun with whatever we do we end up making things more fun for everyone else around us as well. In a way it’s as if you having fun is serving as a reminder for everyone else to have fun right along with you…so really you are doing a public service for everyone when you choose to have fun!
The month of August is going to fly by whether we decide to have fun with it or not…so I say we all decide now that we are going to have FUN with everything we do in August!
Have a fabulously FUN day everyone!
