I’m a big fan of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy.’ And when I watched the 2nd instalment I fell in love with Baby Groot. Now, I know that’s weird but his character made me so happy. And I haven’t been able to stop watching his little dancing clips on You Tube. I’ve basically become obsessed…
I had to ask myself why? I mean he’s a cartoon character!!! Anyway I came to the conclusion that he makes me smile. I watch him being all cute and can’t help but be happy. He represents childhood fun and complete abandon. And that’s such a beautiful quality.
Having fun is something us adults don’t seem to do now we’re all grown up!
However after last weekend I’m able to say I had the most fun I’ve had in a long time. Myself and bunch of girlfriends went out to celebrate my birthday. As we sat eating our dumplings and sipping our sparkles we remarked how we couldn’t even remember the last time we got dressed up! Let alone go out to dance the night away!
And dance we did. After dinner we headed to a music party filled with old school hits from our teenage years. For 4 hours straight we danced and laughed like nobody was watching. It was pure fun. And was one of the best nights of my life. There’s nothing more uplifting than being surrounded by friends and enjoying the hell out the moment.
Fun is something we could all use a little more of- whether it’s laughing at silly You Tube clips, dancing like crazy or pulling a practical joke- we need more of it. There are so many serious things to think about (and yes we need to face those things) BUT it doesn’t mean we can’t have a laugh along the way 🙂
