8 Irresistable Principles of Fun

I really needed to watch this video. (see the high res, flash version here – -it is also available in French and Spanish.)

If you're in the end of the year doldrums and looking ahead towards next year, this will help you get perspective. It is a must-watch and mood adjuster and helps see what is important.

I've been having fun this week in the mountains by the time this posts, I'll be driving back home. (I set these up to post before I left.)

We all need to take time to adjust our attitude, which often means we unplug, go offline, and be with our family! OK, time to go cook lunch! A hungry family is a crabby family!

I have not looked at the video – blocked here at school. I am now catching up on as much as possible after coming unplugged on my own due to a family emergency. I will become unplugged again for a few days to regain composure in my life and spend more time with my kids. Thank you for the reminder. Generally I would have a long list of what I need to accomplish and relaxing is usually not at the top.
