A simple prescription for the weekend: do things that make you smile. I take life too seriously sometimes and need this kind of reminder. I get so focused on my goals that I forget to have fun. What’s the point of setting goals if we don’t enjoy ourselves along the way?

This life goes by quickly and the goals we set don’t always turn out how we thought so we need to make sure that we don’t purely count on them for our happiness. Sometimes we think that a certain outcome will bring us joy and when we get what we want we are disappointed. 

We don’t always know best so it’s important to trust life and have fun along the way. Bring back curiosity and wonder. We often lose them as we become serious adults and yet life is so much more fun if we keep these two around.

Let’s give it a try today. Put one item on your to-do list that you know will make you smile. I already have two in mind for myself: finishing reading a book that I’m really loving and watching a silly Xmas movie. Let me know what yours are in the comments below!
