In responses to my last post, I was advised to have fun now that I am about to set off in a new direction with The Curate. So what constitutes fun? Is it a self centred concept? I'm beginning to think it might be. I enjoy activities that involve other people having fun such as ensuring my sons celebrated their birthdays properly and had loads of fun - But was that me having fun? Or did I get my enjoyment from being a 'facilitator'.
'Fun' for me, as opposed to 'entertainment' is when I experience a guilt free, child like giggle that starts at the base of my stomach and rises, like a bubble, through the whole of my body. Sometimes this is openly expressed (as with The Curate last week), other times it is expressed as a sense of warmth and well being and that all is right with the world because life is fun. Of course, the most awkward times are when that giggle bubble starts and has to be suppressed because it is not at an appropriate time. As adults, the latter is usually when we (or others) judge ourselves as being immature or childish. Isn't it good to see the world through the eyes of a child? How foolish and self important we make ourselves sometimes.
So I am setting out to have some fun (at no one's expense) and discover who I am and what makes me tick!
