Let us be real... reality can be tough sometimes. Jimmy and Jessica show us that in everyday we can find ways to have enjoy our time together even during storms.
I truly can't get over the bliss between this couple. You can tell that they choose to be joyful. Even through different obstacles each and every day. I know I get stuck in the thought that every happy couple I see isn't facing any strife. The truth is reality hits everybody and no one has an easy life. The decision to choose happiness and joy over anger and discontent is one we have to work hard to make.
Jessica reminds us that sometimes she gets sad and instead of staying in the pit, she and Jimmy do something fun together. The two would rather dance in the rain of the storm, rather than waiting for it to pass.
I once lived with the belief that fun stopped when adulthood began. Am I an adult yet? Sometimes I wonder. What if fun didn't stop but only changed? Maybe we don't play tag like we used to, perhaps due to a loss of young energy. Nathan and I love to hike, so when we are together we take time to go for long walks and hikes in either the Florida breeze or the Aussie "bush". When we aren't together we have fun talking and laughing together, having fun by playing some games like 'Heads Up'. Theres always a way to find joy, to choose to be joyful, like how since meeting Nathan I have taken up puns. A pun, is a play on words, used to try to produce a moan, groan or if you're lucky, a laugh. I, myself, am no good at all but oh is it hilarious to try.
So, try something new this week, or something old that once made you laugh and smile and tell us about it.
How do you have fun? And how do you help someone smile when they are down?
