“Practice having fun… let ourselves go a little.” – The Language of Letting Go
A huge breakthrough in my ability to lighten the f$&# up and have some fun, was doing the 40 day love letter exercise suggested by Iyanla Vanzant in her book Until Today. By writing love letters to young Jamie boy, and eventually writing letters from him to big James, I welcomed my inner child back into my life. I remember forcing myself to skip down the beach, jump in the ocean, roll in the sand, and do it all over again. I knew people were watching, so I yelled out I love my life. I tried not to care. It was scary, ridiculous, yet fun. That was over 5 years ago and I’m still trying to have more fun, and be a little sillier, each day of my life. Because the more I enjoy living, the more ILML!
