Make Time for the Jollies

There is an expression that I came up with a few years ago. It was actually more than a few years ago— #MakeTimefortheJollies.

You’re probably wondering what is he talking about? What I mean by the expression

#MakeTimefortheJollies is to take time, every day, to do something that gives you pleasure…we all have things we like to do, but very few of us, make them a priority.

Regardless of how busy you are, you can always take a few minutes to do something that is fun…don’t worry, you’ll still have your “to do” list, but taking five or ten minutes or even an hour, won’t get in the way of your completing your list. What you’ll find is that there will always be a list, sometimes a little longer than at other times. What you’ll also find is that if you #MakeTimefortheJollies, when you are working on your list, whether it’s a mental or a physical one , you’ll be more efficient and productive, and able to complete it in less time. You’ll also enjoy the process of completion more.

It doesn’t matter so much what it is—it could be a dance class, going to the gym, writing in your journal, going to a yoga or Tai Chi class, taking a walk in the woods or gardening. What does matter is that you do something every day! Every day make it a priority. When I was younger I made time for a run every day. Smiling was also a big component. The thing about smiling is that you can smile at any time or at any age and it doesn’t any more time.

Make the morning special. Having a morning ritual, helps in making the jollies a part of your life. You have the time. You just need the commitment. Make it a big commitment.

-To dare again -To dream again
-To feel enjoyment and happiness again, or perhaps for the very first time.
-To realize this is living.”

Walk in freedom and enjoy the great adventure, this great mystery called LIFE. There is no better time than now.
