Day 50
Make a playdate with yourself to do something fun.

Can you believe this week? I am actually encouraging you to play, to goof off, to take a break, to have fun!

In order for this week to work well, you just have to give yourself permission to relax, smile, breathe, laugh, get out of the rat race and play.

Most of us have convinced ourselves that we do not have time for fun, that fun is not important. I could not disagree more. Fun and play are as much a part of life as work and loss are.

Don't wait for another day to pass you by—enjoy this one!

In your journal, write down a list of different ways you love to play. It might be bike riding, hiking, baking, playing card games, doing crafts, sewing, hanging out with friends, golfing, reading or gardening.

Start playing today, and remember these wise words by an anonymous source: "We don't stop playing because we grow old. We grow old because we stop playing."

Day 51
Make a playdate with a friend.

You know how to do this...call up a friend and enjoy the day.

Day 52
Make a playdate with a funny movie and laugh until you cannot laugh anymore. 

Charlie Chaplin once said, "A day without laughter is a day wasted."
