Most of us come into this world with an intrinsic ability to have fun. We can see it when we watch kids play with water and just about anything. If somewhere along adulthood we fell out of love with life, this article offers lighthearted ways for us to enjoy life more.
When we’re aware of our thoughts, feelings and needs, we can speak and act on our own behalf. That’s authenticity.

Like the sound of static while trying to tune in to a radio station, stress is the static that blocks our ability to clearly receive intuitive messages. When we allow thoughts of worry or fear to inundate our mind, and feelings of inadequacy or doubt to fill our bodies, we say to intuition, “I got this. I’m doing everything I can. I’m working on this situation by stressing. I don’t need your help. I’m busy.”
