I like to have fun. Who doesn’t? My kind of fun is active, exciting and adventurous. But quiet things like going for walks, photographing nature and making collages can also be fun. I know I need a balance of different types of fun in my life, as I imaging most people do. But what I’m really missing right now is friends to have fun with!
Being in lockdown is not fun, but neither is getting sick with COVID. So my fun at the moment is doing little art projects, reading, and going for walks – alone. I’m really looking forward to the day when I can have some adventurous and exciting fun with friends again. Or just celebrating a holiday with family would be nice. But for now my fun remains mostly imaginative.
I have to confess that I had to look up the definition for the word “dignified” before I created this collage. We often know what words mean in a general sense, by association or common use, but I wanted to get more specific. I associated the word “dignified” with “stuffed shirts”. Probably the opposite of fun. My ideas about it didn’t inspire my creativity.
However, this definition did inspire me: honorable, worthy, showing great self-respect and respect for others.
Wouldn’t it be nice if we all lived in a dignified way, feeling our true human worth and so, respecting ourselves and others. That is not at all exclusive of fun and creativity. I think it’s a worthy goal to be true to yourself, be open to learning and enjoying life, and imagine all the possibilities for good things to happen.
