Wanna play (like u used to)?
Life is a game you wanna play well. Remember the days spent over an Atari or Commodore playing Super Mario Bros, the Great Giana sisters, etc. with a bunch of your buddies, the youthful joy when you managed to reach another level or found a secret passage to one? It was far from a solitary experience. It was team spirit, competition, shouting, screaming, waiting (im)patiently for your turn.
Though experience grows over the years, at some turning point skills will start to fade away. It is an inevitable part of life (except if you tragically die young & healthy). So how about trying to postpone it a little more. Find the child in you, cherish it, do not hide it away, be proud of it and let playfulness find a way back into your life. Kids can ponder over most down-to-earth things, make a boat out of a cardboard and sail it across rough seas. Use your imagination and whatever you have at your disposal, and squeeze as much joy from your life as you can, until you can. I ask you – do you wanna play it well?
Don’t take yourself too serious and go a bit cold swimming or jumping or just dipping. Look at the fun side of life and smile a bit before it runs under your fingers.
The alternative is becoming grumpy, self-pitying and waiting for others to entertain you. You might have travelled to all the corners of the world, might have seen all the natural and human-made wonders of the world, taken part in world-famous events and then end-up bored and unimpressed with reality, as a saw-it-all people often do. The biggest wonders and pleasures in life are within ourselves, but few dare to explore them thoroughly. Find your treasures inside yourself, then you will be better prepared to enjoy the external ones more deeply. Play it well!
