Daily Card for 4/6/20 – The Lad
The Lad reminds us of the importance of play. Playing not only gives us needed time away from our worries, it sharpens the skills we use when we’re not playing and brings a lightness to whatever difficulties we are contending with.
There’s so much and so little going on at the same time right now and it all may feel quite heavy. You may be dealing with exhaustion and/or boredom, schedules are in complete disarray which just leads to this “out of place” feeling. We need play more than ever.
Some of you may feel as if you’ve forgotten how to play or may even think it’s inappropriate in some way. Again, it is needed now more than ever and you don’t have to remember anything. If you don’t know where to start, you probably put way too much pressure on yourself. You don’t have to win or produce something that others will fall in love with, just explore and experience. One “meh” activity may lead to ideas for things more suitable to you.
Make time to play and create, we are afforded a once in a lifetime opportunity to explore this side of ourselves in a different way. Do not waste it.
