Time Out To Have Fun

Do you and your partner take time out to have fun? I hope you do. So many couples can get so caught up in the day to day grind that they forget that they need to carve out some simple undemanding and fun time for themselves on a regular basis. 

If you don’t take time to have fun together as a couple you risk getting into a rut of seriousness and lose that sense of fun and play that makes life and love entertaining and joyful.  There’s time and reason enough to be serious that we can lose that spark of play and fun if we don’t make a concerted effort to keep play and fun alive in our relationships. 

Granted, some people are naturally more joyful and playful than others, but even the most studious and serious among you still need to break loose and take time to have fun with your partner. 

It can be as simple as going to see a comedy movie, or going to a fair and watching people and children having fun. Whatever it is that sparks a sense of fun and excitement in the two of you. What makes you laugh and enjoy the day? Go do some of that! 

Remember that you only get this one life, and if you let if go by without living it, there’s no do overs. Go out, take some time to have fun together. Laugh, and love each other.
