What do you and your spouse (or significant other) do to keep things fun?
I’ll get us started …
Steve and I love to have fun! In fact, sometimes I think it’s our life’s mission because whatever we are doing, you can be sure there’s lots of laughter involved. Because we enjoy “playing,” we go out of our way to cultivate that in our relationship.
One way we do that is planning fun things to do. If it sounds interesting, we do it. If it’s something we’ve been wanting to do, we plan it. If it’s somewhere we’ve wanted to go, we go. We look for opportunities to make memories, have fun, and laugh a lot together. It really just entails creating opportunities to have fun and then making the most of those opportunities.
Something important to keep in mind is to not take yourselves too seriously. Life is stressful enough without making it more stressful. Laugh at yourselves, and roll with the punches. Laughter is the best medicine, so when all else fails, laugh!
Okay, it’s your turn!
