Have Fun

10156145_10100160168817860_274626555249143030_nThe last 14 months of my life have been a blur.  

I’ve been up, I’ve been down. I’ve been to Texas, Alberta, Chicago, Baltimore, Nashville, Chattanooga, Pittsburgh, Greensboro NC, and a few others I can’t remember. I’ve worked with an excellent group of folks in Chattanooga on loads of different projects: turning The 2nd Floor into a must see destination for ages 0-18 and their caregivers, working with The 4th Floor on all sorts of future of libraries stuff, and connecting with the community to make Chattanooga an even better place to live.

It has been a lot of work. I have grown as a person. There are ups and downs.  Nothing ever goes according to plan.  You have to learn how to live in the moment and makes the best changes you can.  Despite the challenges, the one thing that I have focused on in the long run is just how much fun it has been.  That’s what my wife Haley tells me.  Don’t get bogged down by any crap. Move ahead, do what is best, and have fun.

I don’t know why I am writing this blog post other than to just put that idea out into the world: always have fun.  Every situation is unique and challenging in your life. If you see it as fun, you will enjoy it all and have a good life.

Fun is often overlooked and maybe it shouldn’t be. Maybe fun should be at the core of all that we do. Perhaps that we’ll change the world through fun.

  1. I believe “fun” is Jack Frost’s Center (Rise of the Legend of the Guardians). Thanks for the reminder!
