Daily Prompt: Playtime

Do you play in your daily life? What says “playtime” to you?

Just this past week I read a blog on my company’s intranet that spotlighted a woman within our company asking her various questions and one of the questions was: How do you relax from a busy day/week?

Her answer was amazing. She stated that she was on the adventurous side and spent her time with her grown children doing various things like: racing lamborghinis in the desert, zip lining in Vegas, and learning new things like fly fishing.

I thought to myself wow she has some major connections and wow she is living life. I definitely, need to starting enjoying and living my life to the fulliest.

So, how do I play in my daily life?

Lately, I have been involved in a new project that involves me to take on a very big role. So to be honest, I have not had any time during work hours to take a nice break.

After I am done with work, and after a long commute, I start my next job. Mom and wife duty. I rarely have time to stop and smell the roses. There is so much I have to take care of and not enough time.

What does playtime look like?

Playtime during work hours looks like: me taking my breaks so that I could take a walk, surf the web, read, or catch up with my peers so that I could re-energize.

Playtime after work looks like: making time to read, having family game night, blogging, and crocheting.

On the weekend, I need to come up with more adventures. I have mentioned to my husband that we need to start enjoying our youth and start really enjoying our life. We have come up with some ideas like: learning how to sail, taking a hot air balloon ride, taking a ride on a blimp, or booking a flight to some where we have never been for the weekend.

How do you play?

I would love to hear what you do. I may added it to my list.

For the heros that are still with us, thank you so much for all you have done and continue to do.

You will never be forgotten.
