By nature, I am a serious, focused person. I've always said that I don't know how to play.
I never enjoyed playing as a kid, I found it challenging to play with my own children. Playing is not something that comes naturally to me--it is not easy for me.
Some people are known for being fun and fun-loving. In many ways I envy them. But in some ways, I *gasp* judge them. I know, that's a horrible to thing to say, but if I see someone having "fun" at someone else's expense, or in what I perceive to be an irresponsible way, I--well, I judge.
Judging other peoples' behavior, is of course, not a good character trait. Believe me, I know this. I also know that by admitting it, I am one step closing to overcoming it. So I decided to take a little time to explore and reflect upon the topic of "fun." I thought that if I knew how to have fun, I might have a better respect and appreciation for the way other people participate in fun activities.
Let me tell you, today's episode on "fun" was one of the most difficult episodes I've recorded! In so many ways the concept of "play" and "fun" is foreign to me. Bear with me though, I learned some cool stuff in this episode!
