DAY 62: SUSAN’S FORAY INTO FUN!

I’m 15 hours late with my blog post for Friday, and quite honestly, I’m not surprised. I’ve started going out on Friday nights, enjoying the company of some really cool people, having fun, (there’s a concept), and I find myself at the end of the evening fairly brain dead. Now, before anyone jumps to conclusions and starts thinking it’s the wine, (2 glasses), I want to state for the record that I believe fun is totally intoxicating.

For me, purely and simply, that is it. Here I am, a middle aged woman in the prime of my life, having shucked off her old oppressive identity, out at a bar that had a great band, yucking it up and having the time of her life. A couple of year’s ago, I would have been shocked to see me there. And, this is not only cause for great celebration, possibly even jubilation, it is also an affirmation of the beauteous amorphous thing that my life is becoming now that I have chosen to think and live big.

It’s me, becoming me: And I am a Friday night Party Animal! It took me almost 50 years to arrive at this most auspicious identity and I am reveling in the buoyant opportunities being free and heart-centered has offered me. I attract like-spirited people. I feel not only safe in their company, but broken open and capable of sharing myself unconditionally. And let me emphasize that there is no risk here, because I am me, being me, feeling really good about me.

Today’s post includes a fairly awkwardly produced video of last night. I recorded it off my iphone, and I think it’s fairly hilarious in that you can hear me over the band and the crowd, in the background commenting on what I’m recording. No award will be won here, but the significance of the moment needed to be memorialized and proferred to the universe.  I don’t believe this will be the only version of fun I will share this year. Nevertheless, it is an insight into my first forays of Friday Night Fun and I hope offers a glimpse of how glimmering my life is becoming!

Susan’s foray into fun!

About livebig365

Join me as I dive in to the deep end of the pool and challenge myself to live big and love big. What does that mean? In 2012 , I accepted the invitation to push myself beyond my comfort zone, at least once a day, and engaged and responded to my life, or a given situation in my life, in a way that would normally scare the hell out of me. Why did I do it it? Because it was time time to begin, and I was ready! Each day brought a new revelation, lesson, challenge, encounter, a teaching moment, that revealed to me that living big and loving big are uniquely interconnected. Welcome 2013, the year of lovebig 365. Each post was an expression of love experienced, witnessed, inspired, manifested. It didn't always make sense in the moment, and yet its sheer mystery hopefully evoked a beautiful affirmation of life and all of its shimmery brightness; broken up, lovely to behold, tender and full of purpose. 2014, jagged, bumpy, disjointed posts. 2015, silence, and plenty of growth within that silence. Manifesting 2016: The creation of a gathering place for gratitude. Join in the wavering, audacious, unequivocal fun. 2017: Reflection 2018: POWER, MAGIC, TRANSFORMATION
