Here are a few "silly fun" moments for me:
As an Assistant Youth Pastor for my church some years ago, I had great fun parking my car at the end of the church driveway, dressing up as a clown and dancing around to get people to come to our teen car wash fundraiser! Sadly, the pictures of this were lost.
Dressed as a sprite for the community theatre musical of "Scarlet Pimpernel." Don't think this is very silly? What you don't see is that I'm wearing white tights and an extreme short skirt...then a group of us danced around a may pole and sang. Yes...quite silly...but, oh, what fun!!!!
Dressed as Cinderella for a little girl's birthday party. She and all her friends loved it, which made it so much fun for me!
A couple years ago, when my son was still very small, he and I dressed up like cows in order to get free food at Chick-fil-a! Yes, we went in public dressed like this.....and had a BLAST! Not to mention, we got free food!
Just a couple days ago, my son and I put on play jewelry and played kissy-face!
Why is "silly fun" so important? Because it's FUN! Laughing is healthy. It actually increases endorphins in the body and can serve as a healing agent! When you can laugh at yourself and allow others to laugh with you, you can then be truly happy. No longer are you scared of what other people think or worried what a perfect stranger may say about you because....really? Who cares? Whoever you worry about impressing the most, to you they become god.
All too often, we (including myself) spend waaaaaaayyyyyy too much time caring about other people's opinions, making sure each hair is in place, t's are crossed and i's are dotted.......that we miss out on the fun that life has to offer. There are times for being prim and proper and put together...but there are also times for silly-goofiness!
WARNING: Laughing and having "silly fun" is contagious so only participate if you want to attract friends!
I hope you can get to the end of each and every day and remember a time that day that you laughed!
