LushLunes: It's Ok To Be Silly

Happy LushLunes, my deep thinkers!!! I recently read a post by one of my favorite tweeple @ZenMommie which expressed an amazing message: 

"Zen is to have the heart and soul of a little child."Takuan
[you should definitely read her post here] 
After reading this, I realized I enjoy my moments more when I smile, when I relax my shoulders, when I am mindful of how I feel, my breath, the sounds around me, the wind, the sun...when I pay attention to all the little details I just relax because there's no more room in my mind for worry or debate.

And when I let myself PLAY, there's nothing that can bring me down. If I add a little playfulness to each thing I do, well then it makes my day all that much brighter.  So, this leads me to your LushLunes assignment.

Your Mission: 

Add some silliness to your day today. Allow yourself to be playful. Take the smile on your face and immerse yourself in it (just like in Eat Pray Love, even your liver must smile!). So whether you literally play a game, or go outside and twirl or do a cartwheel (if you can manage without hurting yourself or someone else) do something that evokes some silliness, some playfulness, and allow yourself to indulge in your child like nature. You deserve it.
