I have much to learn from you. About letting go, not worrying about what others are thinking, and just being present in the moment. You push me to my edges. You encourage me to stretch, to reach, to grow. You bring out my laughter and plaster the biggest smile across my face.
When I am entangled up in you I forget about the weight that I am carrying around on my shoulders. I feel as if the world opens up to me and possibilities are endless. You give me hope to keep on trying and you remind me of the simple joys in life.
Oh dear play you infuse me with happiness. You take an ordinary day and make it extraordinary.
It is not always easy for me to fall into your arms. There are times when my guard is up and I am unsure of how to let you in. But once I do I realize how much I need you. Life without play just isn't a life at all.
I am grateful to Dustin for always reminding me of you. He nudges and nudges, knocking down my wall and bringing out the silly in me. He always get's me to play.
Thank you for stretching me. For creating the very best memories. For infusing laughter. For brightening my day. For reminding me again and again what an integral part of my life you are. Oh dear play, you make this world a brighter place.
Join me in 14 days of love notes and write your very own love note to play. How do you show up in the world and play? What way do you integrate play into your everyday? I will be writing one love letter a day for fourteen days. For it is love that makes the world go round.
