Have Fun with Each Other

This is a quote from one of my favourite books. I hope you are able take something from this article.
Are you fun to be with? Are you fun to come home to? People are drawn to laughter, sweet relief from the duties of life. You can make fun happen if you let out your own playful child and look for the playful Child in others. Having fun every day is a good prescription for keeping people. It is also a presciption for good health. A pediatrician noted that in some famlies there is little illness even though neither parents nor children take very good care of themselves. What she found was a lot of happiness. A bright young man of our acquaintance said, "Healthy people make healthy people." Fun is contagious.
By observing others we can discover what they consider fun. Ask questions? One of the most enjoyable forms of intimacy is sharing fantasies: What would you do if .... you had a million dollars, owned a newspaper company, had a year off from work, built a mountain cabin? Familes can become dreary if problems always come first: Johnny's bad report card, the leaking roof, or balancing the cheackbook. Problems need attention, but solutions come easier if people take time out first to relax. How long has it been since you have been silly, hopped in the car for a spin to anywhere, bought your friend a funny gift, mailed someone a cartoon, taken a day off without having to justify such "unproductive" behavior?
Are you considering a relationship with someone who is serious all the time? Is that what your life together will be like? Think twice. Fun is healthy. Fun is fun!
