Relearning Cartwheel: #42 of the 60 New Adventures for the Bored

As time passes, we forget sometimes how to have real fun. I remember when I was about 6 or 7 years old, I cartwheel in frenzy. Twirling in circles over and over. Doing it just for the heck of it. No real purpose. I forget how fun it is to be a kid again. 20 or so years after, here I am relieving an old pastime. And I tell you, I did stretched some muscles while doing it! Almost sprained myself actually. Lol!

What happened to me? What happened to us? When did we stop playing? Why did we ever? Play stimulates creativity. It stimulates happy hormones. It create an atmosphere where nothing is wrong. Play should be part of our adult lives. We need it as ever. And I’m not talking about flirtations, sexual innuendos. But plain, innocent, children’s play.

When was the last time you played? Or just plain have fun? I say if you can’t remember, start now! Play!
