Why, I often wonder, is it so hard to know what I find fun? I think it’s simply easier to “be myself” but it’s a constant challenge to have fun.
I know many people have difficulty identifying what they like to do, for work and fun. But that wasn’t true for you. You had an ability to intertwine fun with your work – academics, sports, relationships, your life and even cancer – easily. You were “being Jodi.”
So, I’ve been thinking that to have more fun in my life – I simply have to “be myself” and intend for fun. Is fun more about the state of “being” and less about the activity of “doing?”
I started thinking about how much fun you gave to others. And even during times in the hospital, you created these moments of fun for nurses, physicians, patients and your visitors by simply “being Jodi.”
Well, I found this photo – a reminder to lighten up and have more fun. And with your encouragement, my intention to have more fun will be easier – simply “being me.”
