On Monday I wrote about being a little more serious. Which is good. But too many good-intentioned tough girls take it to an extreme and become nothing but serious.
Why so serious? Do you need to lighten up? Do you remember how?
“Rejoice in the Lord always! I will say it again – rejoice!” – Philippians 4:4
Have fun with your friends. Plan a girls night out or a girls night in where you do something totally zany and awesome. Give them little gifts that remind you of inside jokes. Play pranks.
Have fun at school. Be creative on assignments and put a smile on your teachers’ faces. In fact, just smiling can make you really stand out!
Have fun with your family. Plan a game night or pack a picnic for all of you. Send random texts to your parents or brother or sister and let them know you love them. Post silly things that remind you of them on their Facebook walls.
Have fun with being thoughtful. Seek out people to build up with encouragement. Look for people who need a good laugh. Wear clothing that reflects the joy and peace that Jesus has placed inside of you.
Have fun with Jesus. Rock out to some upbeat Christian music like TobyMac or Group1Crew. Read a Christian fiction book. Go on a thanksgiving walk with a friend.
Question: Where in your life could you try and have a little more fun? Who is someone you’d describe as “fun” that you could pattern yourself after? Where do you draw the line between too serious and too fun?
