Stop Being Boring & Put An End To Mediocrity

“If you see children walking along the sidewalk after a rain, and there’s a puddle in front of them, what are they going to do when they get to that puddle?  They’re going to jump in!  They’re going to laugh, splash around, and have a good time.  What does an older person do?  Walk around it?  No, they won’t just walk around it – they’ll complain the whole time!  You want to live differently.  You want to live with a spring in your step, a smile on your face.  Why not make cheerfulness, outrageousness, playfulness a new priority for yourself?  Make feeling good your expectation.  You don’t have to have a reason to feel good – you’re alive; you can feel good for no reason at all!“ ~ Anthony Robbins

I love this quote so much. It reminds me of a time my husband and I went out for a run, just after it rained. ☔ The ground was wet when we started our run. We left the house on not so great terms with an unresolved argument looming over both of us.

After a few miles in, you could feel the emotions within each of us shift back to a harmonious space. As the love and understanding started to overcome me, a sense of playfulness emerged. 😏

As we turned the last corner back towards our apartment, I hunched over, grabbed my leg and started screaming ouch!! 😫😫

Knowing my husband would rush to my aid, I waited until he was almost to me to jump up and right into a MASSIVE mud puddle I was standing next too. 💦 Scattered with mud and water we both erupted in laughter as we continued to see who could get who muddier. 💦

This ridiculous moment from our past is one we often talk about. 🕒 It gets brought up at dinner parties when meeting new friends and about every time we see a mud puddle.

But why? Why is it so often remembered…

In one word… Spontaneity. Tony calls this one of the 6-fundamental human needs.

We desperately desire fun, excitement and joy in our lives! But, being human means that we get trapped in autopilot, in a routine, in a rutt.

When this happens, sadness, disappointment, and depression emerge. All of which can be changed with 1-Spontaneous choice. 😍

One joyful, playful decision that allows our inner-child to emerge and for just a brief moment puts our overly responsible, mature, do the right thing mindset at rest.
