What is Fun??? Oh What Fun!!!

The past couple of weeks or possibly even the past month, my life has consisted of constant craziness.I've been working tons, attending meetings, going to Young Women activities, temple, and trying to have a social life, on top of all of that. There has been some crazy situations and lots of stress. Oh man! 

Within the past week or so, I have had a couple of people ask me what I've done lately that has been fun. That has been a little difficult to answer because of everything I've been doing and all that. However, according to one definition, fun is anything amusing, entertaining or enjoyable. As I have thought about it though, I've realized that you can have fun or do something fun everyday. It doesn't have to be anything major or cost a ton of money. Too bad it took me this long to figure it out. 

In my room, there is a calendar handing from my closet door. On it, I usually put all the tasks that I have to do. I am beginning to wonder if I should separate those squares in two sections: To-Do & Fun. This would help me see the fun in each day. 

So, as a back track, starting with today and going back to whenever I feel (we'll see what I can remember), I want to share some of the fun things I have been doing.

Brigham City Temple dedication, laughing as I thought how jealous my young women would be because the missionaries sat right in front of me, volleyball games, temple, teasing times with co-workers, more volleyball,  ran three miles, visited a great friend, mutual, got free food, met some great new friends, campfire, sidewalk chalk pictures, trip to Poky, time with old friends, gift shopping (not the shopping part but the finding good gift part), Brigham City Open House, Family Home Evening with friends, having friends come to church with me, and I'm sure there are a lot more fun times. 

Each day is a new adventure and even those things that could be the most crazy or stressful or whatever, can have fun moments. I can honestly say that I am so grateful that I have been SO busy. That alone, is a blessing in and of itself. 

So, what is fun? Anything that brings a smile to your face and gives a moment (even if it be just a brief moment) of enjoyment or happiness. That is fun.  I'm betting you can find something "fun" in each day. Give it try! Honestly, looking back, some of the days when I struggled the most or was too busy to think, I could still find something fun that happened. With that in mind, what fun have you done lately?
