{What does Balance and Wellness Mean to You?} Playfulness in Every Day Life

Pandas at Borders
On Thankgiving Day, husband and I walked past Borders on the way home from a wonderful meal with friends. As you can see from the pictures, there were stuffed pandas all over Borders. I loved the playfulness of the scene and captured it on camera through the window of Borders.
More pandas
Seeing the playful display was a nice reminder for me – I tend to be way too serious most of the time, and I definitely benefit from adding playfulness to my life. Here are some things I rely on:
*no matter how awful a situation feels, find humor in it
*carry sparkly pens in my purse
*cut-out collage materials from magazines {this invariably reminds me of childhood}
*giggle with husband

Great reminder about playfulness. I love it! And next time I'm in Border's I'll be looking for those Pandas. :)

I'm late in reading this post, but it came at such a great time. I just learned (literally a half hour ago) that a dear family friend and his very young grandson went down in their plane, just south of Austin. Both died instantly.

I went to the Dr. today with accute hip and back pain. I was nervous as my flight was leaving in 2 hours. Dr. said both were due to too much exercise and stress.

There isn't that much I do that is terribly important. I basically draw pretty pictures. Taking time to play is very important. Thanks for the reminder!
