Being spontaneous and letting go of my plans made me realize that it's a lot easier to get thins done. Sometimes we need a break from the seriousness, and being silly can remind us of the fun in life.
There's nothing like being totally silly and letting loose. I used to worry about whether I looked weird, if I used the "right" words, the list continues...
Peers used to mock me because I was nerdy. I'm not saying this to receive pity or sympathy, but rather to show that it's possible to feel good about who we are, without caring about what others think of us!
What helps you be silly?
Sometimes, with silliness, it means letting go of what's expected of us as adults. Who says that we can't act like a kid every once in awhile?!
My boyfriend had dropped off his car to get fixed and there was a downpour. So what did we do?! We skipped in the rain and slid into the mud. The hills turned golden as the sun parted through the clouds.
Some tips to get silly:
1. Watch an old cartoon and embrace all of it.
2. Grab a friend and make silly faces at each other until you start laughing.
3. Go to a comedy show.
4. Start telling jokes and laugh at yourself.
5. Look at something and make up a nonsensical story about it. Laugh at yourself!
