Remember summers as a kid? Days so long they seemed to stretch out forever? The rush of diving into the lake at camp, or the taste of the perfect orange popsicle on a hot day? Go ahead — get your favorite summer memory in your mind and hold it there. Got it? That’s what today should feel like. It’s Frolic Friday — time to cut loose and have some fun!
- Have a watermelon seed spitting contest
- Go swimming and stay in the water until your fingers get “pruney”
- Head into the woods for a hike in the shade of the canopy. Pick a spot and take a seat. Just let your mind wonder and enjoy the cool quiet of an unplugged moment in nature.
As always, it does not matter what you do — just take some time to enjoy the season and all of Mother Nature’s bounty. Approach the weekend with a renewed sense of awe and the goal of relaxing and finding the fun in your world. Um, and don’t forget the popsicles!
Now, if you will excuse me, there is a tire swing with my name on it.
