Last week I realized something very important about myself. For a very long time the fun side of my personality has been missing. I have always been considered a serious person and I accepted that role in life. But in thinking about alot of things, I realized that as a child, particularly a teenager, I used to laugh and do crazy things all of the time. But once I officially became an adult this part of my personality vanished. My friends are also pretty serious so we spend a lot of time being serious. But this week I decided that I wanted to find the fun, joyful part of me again. I also accepted that I am the only one who can bring her back. So Tuesday night I took a big risk for me. At my writing class, I chose the topic that could lead to a funny story. It was fun to write and it was fun to share with the class. I was really astounded when they laughed at several spots and clapped when I finished. I don't think that you will find me on stage at any comedy clubs anytime soon but I do know that I enjoyed sharing this part of my personality with my writing class. It took courage to dip my big toe in the water but it was definitely worth the risk. I have promised myself that from now on I am going to seek out fun and laughter. I am really excited about seeing where this new attitude can take me.
