Do your homework first, then you can play.
How many of us were told this as children? I know I was, and in turn, I am guilty of saying the same thing to my daughter.
Do your homework first, then you can play. After all I will admit it does teach us to be responsible and self disciplined.
I will also admit it's a great feeling to have all of your homework, chores, and tasks finished and out of the way. It can lend a sense of order, space, and structure to our day.
It can also be a legitimate way to stay safe. To remain small.
To not do the very thing your heart yearns to do. Those things you say you want to do someday.
You know, that urge inside to write a best seller, to paint a masterpiece, to play spanish guitar or jazz piano, to try out some new recipes, take voice lessons, learn French, train for a marathon, that creative, free spirited, individual inside that just wants to have fun and play. To express the unique individual that you are.
If you are anything like me, by the time I have done my homework, washed the dishes, done the laundry, sat down and paid the bills, I no longer have the time or the inspiration to do anything else.
And that's a really good excuse. Not enough time, not enough energy.
However what it really says is, my innermost desires, are not valuable. I am not valuable.
I believe that when we honor our creativity, honor our innermost desires, play and have fun, we value ourselves, we feel abundant, we feel lucky!
So I say, if you want to increase your luck, play first!
Do the things you yearn to do first. Set aside the time to write first, to paint first, and to do the things that fill you with joy, even if its just for 30 minutes or an hour. Whatever we are putting our focus and attention on, whether that be work or play, the law of attraction will be bringing us more of it. I don't know about you, but I chose more play!
When you do the things that make your heart sing first, you may find you have so much energy and enthusiasm for life that you have more time and energy to do the things that need to get done. You may even find you don't have to do them at all, someone else can.
Play first, then do your homework.
Love and Luck,
