This is why we wake up every morning.
This is why we must take care of ourselves, so we can get out of bed.
It's called FAMILY - and it's about LIVING.
These guys want to play with us.
LIVING IS ABOUT PLAYING and PLAYING IS SERIOUS BUSINESS
Here at the 80-10-10 Lifestyle RETREAT with Dr. Douglas Graham, our fearless leader teaches fitness by PLAY. Standing on top of a ball. Re-bounders. Ropes. Balance. Always, "can you do this ....?" Every muscle in my body is screaming.
Some are saying, "If you stretch me one more time, I'll hurt you worse."
Other's are saying, "Where have you been, I've missed you."
I was thinking about this during the fast - when there was nothing else to do - we all like to shake our heads and wag our tongues about kids using digital games; but why don't we invite them outside to play some tag, or hide-n-seek, or jump rope, or Simon-Says? I bet those devices would be abandoned in a heartbeat. Do we seriously think they wouldn't rather play and run around - with US? Try it. I dare you.
But you've got to be energetic - and you've got to be able to lead the pack. Even if it's only shouting out, "Can you do ....?". You've got to have some creativity, and wouldn't it be the COOLEST, MOST fun thing to join them? Can you imagine the memories you would create, and the example you would set for them and their kids?
If you can't play with your family, because you are too sick, tired, old, or sad because of your past - consider a FAST so you can LIVE and PLAY again.
TAG, YOU'RE IT!
CATCH ME IF YOU CAN
I DOUBLE DARE YOU
BE WELL ~ BE SAFE ~ BE HAPPY
It's a Jungle Out there
