With the weekend now officially upon us, it's time for a little fun.
As simple as it sounds, the word "fun" perhaps brings a little pressure when we aren't feeling so great about life but the thing to remember about the idea of fun is that is completely unique and always lies in the most simple of things.. What I might find fun you may consider boring and torturous and visa versa but in finding what it is we ourselves find fun we open our lives to so much happiness..
So without further a do, here are some simple things that might possibly bring a little fun to your weekend..
Go on a photographic walk somewhere you love and take lots of photos of the beauty around you..
Have an afternoon tea party for you and your friends..
If the weather is nice, there's no where more fun than going (to see your family at) the zoo.. Just kidding, but really it is the perfect way to spend some time getting lost in the wonders of the world..
Pretend you're a tourist in your own city or community. Go and do something you've never done before or see something as though you're excited to see it for the first time. Bringing a little wonder to your life can be so much fun..
Pick flowers in the wild and make a pretty arrangement for your bedroom..
Take some time to chill and read your book. Turning off all technology, let yourself get lost in the other world being lived in the pages of your chosen read..
Invite friends or be your own company in hosting a movie marathon in your own home. Watch back to back classics or anything that you've grown up loving and make sure you make popcorn super salty..
Dedicate time to clearing out your closet. This might not seem fun but once you pump up the music and get in the mood it's the most freeing thing to have done at the end of the day..
Pack a picnic and spend the day at the park. Cloud-watching is a must and people-watching can be super fun. Get creative and imagine where they're going, what they do in their lives and let it be as crazy and fun as you possibly can..
Get dressed up and go to the theatre. Like the cinema it can be such a wonderful distraction and escape but having fun getting dressed up can add that little extra element of fun..
Visit someone you've been meaning to visit but have been putting off. Especially someone older who might not see anyone from one end of the week to the other. Perhaps take them shopping or for a stroll, you'd be surprised just how much YOU can make someone else's weekend fun..
Go dancing or bowling, go-carting or rollerblading. Some form of activity can really be super fun..
Paint, draw, colour, do a puzzle, write a story. Get messy in something creative and make sure you leave perfectionism out of it cause fun can never be perfect..
Spend time with kids and let yourself embrace their inhibitions and lack of judgement. Think about how fun they find the silliest of things yet notice how happy and free they are. They really are the greatest teachers..
The definition of fun is: "enjoyment, amusement, or lighthearted pleasure" and so it's not just all about the big and obvious things we associate with having fun but also, and often far more, all the little things that money can't buy..
So this weekend all you need to add a little fun to your weekend is
An open mind
