“Isn’t fun fun?”
My friend said this to me as I was teaching a group of ladies how to make an Easter wreath made out of torn scraps of fabric. Everyone nodded in agreement, and it got me thinking about fun.
When we were kids fun was really fun. The joy of building a sand castle, the thrill of riding a bike down a hill, or the wonder of exploring an amusement park reached us to the core. It just seemed easier to enjoy life as a child. Maybe because of lack of responsibilities or innocence, or insatiable curiosity.
I had to admit to myself that I don’t enjoy “fun” as much as I used to. I can only guess as to why that is. I suppose there are different reasons for everyone. But we all bring our negative baggage into most everything we do, and I think it interferes with our ability to enjoy life.
I want to try harder to approach each fun activity without my backpack of negative experiences, prejudices, and expectations weighing me down. I want fun to be fun.
Now, this was fun! My friends finished product.
Instructions: Purchase wire wreath at the dollar store. Tear about 70-80 pieces of fabric into 1 1/2 X 5 1/2 inch pieces in any color combination that you like. Tie pieces onto the second wire rung from the center in one tie (no need to make a knot). Purchase the bunny at the dollar store and use up your left over ribbon for added detail. Hot glue those on. Wa La!
