The "Play" is the Thing...

I had forgotten how much fun it is to just "play." For the past two hours I have been in my room listening to some of my CD's and singing and dancing and being silly. I don't give myself the luxury of letting go like that very often anymore. In all of the acting classes that I have had, the teachers allowed us at least one day a week to just let loose. Playing is encouraged to help develop the imagination and encourage that sense of uninhibited fun that we all had as children.

How did I allow myself to forget about that? Am I so stuck in in the everyday "crap" of my life that I have forgotten what makes me "ME" in the first place? How did that happen?

Well, ultimately, it doesn't matter. I'm giving myself a gift today. I am remembering what "play" is like. Now I just have to remind myself to indulge in it a bit each day.

I'm going to go dance, sing and be silly some more.

Who wants to join me? :) :)

A person should never forget how to play. You forget to play, you have lost yourself.
