Do you take life so serious that you are miserable????

Are the pressures of life getting to you?? Bills? Family squabbles?? Work?? The Boss?? It's time for a break. Find some children and play. They will remind you how important play is in our lives. Forget your troubles for a while. Know that it all works out in the end. After all,didn't all your past problems work out? Your new problems will too. Now, how about a game of Hide and Seek??? That's right. Play doesn't mean on that computer. We need a bit more physical contact and exercise than that.

I think that my problem is exactly the oposite, and I don´t take life seriously at all, but I have seen other people who does it, and, althought they are more successful than I am, at least in the surface, I don´t regret it. This does not mean that I do not focus on my work at all, and be irresponsible in life, but, I rather have a minute of happiness, than a hour of worries, even if it means less money.

Yes, you are wise. There are more important things in life than money.

I agree, there are times when life's pressures catch up with us and we get stressed but I we do have to then learn to step back from it and take time out and enjoy what is around us. I have 3 kids that I clean up after all day long, running to do for the kids, the house, hubby.... it seems like times when I get pulled in so many directions but at the end of the day it all works out and if the house doesnt get clean that day, it will tomorrow. :) Have a great day and Happy Mylotting!!

3 Kids??? That is wonderful. I bet there is always fun going on around your house. Get the kids to help with the house work. Schedule a time when there is a gang cleaning. If everyone helps, everything gets cleaned very quickly. This will also teach them not to make such a mess. You would be surprised how quickly they can figure out that messy takes more work. You could have a special treat for everyone for when it's done. Ah yes, there is nothing like a good family project.

Great, now I have to find a kinder garden I think, so I can play hide and seek with the children... Yeah, you are right sometimes playing with children can relieve our heavy heart, and so can having tete a tete with senior citizen.

I agree with you.We mustn't let the troubles of life weigh down our minds.When we feel depressed or upset,we can do something to take our minds off that.Sometimes, it is no use crying over spilt milk.Over here ,there is an old saying,as long as the green mountains are there,one needn't worry about firewood.

Sometimes this helps, although because I work with kids, for me it helps more to just pick up a book and take a break.

If you work with kids, you probably get your play in at work. Yes, a nice quiet place can help a person unwind from this noisy world.

Hi bird: I agree with you. Some people just focus on teh problems and that's a big obstacle to enjoy all the beautiful things around us that are also important. but if we make an effort and we realize that there are so many reasons to be thankful and to enjoy life, our spirit through our day by day life and our problems will also change.

Yeah, we need to play alright. Unfortunately, some construction activity is going on in the neighborhood. So it is a bit difficult to do that as yet. I completely agree with you though Physical activity has a rejuvinating effect.

Construction activity can be disturbing, however time flies. They will be gone before you know it and hopefully there will be benefits from their work. Let's just hope they don't work at night so you can get your sleep.

I wish the pressures of life are not getting to me. It's hard even to find time to relax, have fun and release some pressures. But you're right. It's important to forget all those troubles even for a while and give yourself a break. Thanks

Funny how things work. If you don't take the time for play and fun, one just falls further behind with the rest. An organized person can do much more, rested and refreshed.

Yes, I'm pressured because of all of the problems and responsibilities. I always think of them. I hope that I can do that but I don't have much time due to full time work. I miss playing even I'm not a child anymore.

WE must take time for the important things in life. If you take the time to include play in your life, you will discover you have more energy and will work faster when you do the responsible things. Yes, it will all fit. You will be much happier.
