Life is serious business. Bad news abounds. It’s everywhere. Viruses and pandemics. Royals and scandals. Accidents and disasters. It fills our minds every day and can dominate our lives if we are not careful.
One way of fighting this is to have some fun. Every day. It does not have to be a massive effort or even organized, you can just build it into your day.
When I get dressed for work, I try to present myself with understated elegance. Neat and tidy. Respectful. The colours may even be muted sometimes, quite against my nature. I just love vibrant colours! It must be my African roots showing.
I build fun into my outfit with the party in my shoes. I found these colourful, fun socks online from a company called Afrisocks, and yes, they sent it to me in Canada. They are a ton of fun! Loud as an African bazaar, they make me smile when I get dressed for that serious workshop or important meeting. During the day they remind me to not take life too seriously.
How can you build a bit of fun in your day? Perhaps something you wear, or something you use every day. Anything that will make you smile!
