Your task for Week 12 of a Lighter More Loving You is to create a JAR OF FUN!
A JAR OF FUN for…
your FAMILY, or
for DATES NIGHTS with your spouse, or
an ARTIST/ADVENTURE DAY for yourself, or
DO ALL THREE!!
In Week 11’s Check In, I said that an aspect of people who have “long and happy lives” is QUALITY CONNECTION. Doing the WAVE is a good way to start to acknowledge and connect with others; to build QUALITY CONNECTION, however, takes time.
Having FUN TIME (or SNOOPY MOMENTS) together with your family, spouse, partner, or yourself, is the best way to forge that QUALITY CONNECTION.
The idea is simple:
Take a jar, write down activities to do, put them in the jar, choose one a week, and do them!
What is not so simple is making the TIME.
If you take the time to make and do the jar, you are more likely to make the time!
Need some ideas of what to put in the jar? There are plenty of resources on-line.

Cheering You On to a Whole Jar Full of Fun Heart,
Your task for Week 11 of 50 Weeks to a Lighter More Loving You was to do the WAVE…to wave at anyone and everyone, whether you knew them or not, while you were driving or out and about.
Have you had your wave day…or a few? What is about this exercise that makes you a Lighter More Loving You?
Connections are one characteristic of people who have “long and happy lives.” The quality and sense of security in those relations are the other two factors.
How often do we go about out days and see people, but not really SEE THEM!
I dare say I’ve walked, drove, and rushed by thousands of people with barely a notice. I’ve sat next to people on a plane that I said no word to. This is not hard for an introvert like myself. The plane rides where I talked to my neighbor or consciously smiled at people as they passed to their seats, where definitely more fun and interesting. WHY? Because I was in the moment, mindful, connecting, and acknowledging others.
It makes your heart feel great when you notice and acknowledge others. You are present, engaged in the now, and connecting.
It makes others feel great too!
Feel free to share a WAVE Story or how someone acknowledging you made your day.
Keep Calm and Wave On to a Whole Heart,
