Life just ain't any fun anymore.

I respectfully disagree. 

 

Your life in this moment can be short on fun, but that doesn't mean you can't go find some or create it yourself.

 

I lost a dear friend of over 40 years suddenly on Boxing Day - just before what would have been his 70th birthday. He was a simple man in England who never had much in terms of material things. His beloved first wife died after a prolonged illness, and it was a long time before he could or would pursue another relationship. Thankfully, he did eventually find someone who brought him a great deal of happiness.

 

The thing I'll always remember about my friend is his unflagging good humor. He always had a good joke at the ready. And the flood of comments posted by others after his passing reveals a man who maintained an amazing number of close relationships with friends he'd had since early childhood. Again, though, it wasn't a matter of what he did or accomplished in life. He clearly saw the value in maintaining long-term close ties with not only everyone who impacted his life in some positive way but their children and even the grandchildren. Shared memories made him especially happy. 

 

That was his "fun". And he found it in the most basically human way possible - by loving and being loved. Bolstered by that strength, we can endure so much more of what life throws at us.

 

I can see the crucial turning points of my life in terms of a dance move. Finding myself with both feet blocked from moving directly forward, I always took one step to the left and simply danced onward from there. The key was never to step (or be pushed) backward.

 

(NOTE: If you saw me try to dance, you'd know how silly an analogy that really is.)
