Sometimes…it’s best to play…simply play…. Nurturing Thursday

Sometimes…it’s best to play…to simply play!

~

Inspired by…
the play of animals…
the play of children…
the play of those around us…
simply…play!

Brooks Falls Holly's cubs...sometimes best to play, simply play

~

sometimes, it’s easy to  forget how wonderful and important it is to play…to have fun!
simple play!
nothing “fancy”
simple play!

~

There are so many different types of “play” for each one of us…
pausing and reflecting….simply figuring out what’s “play” for each of us?
what’s “fun”…????
and doing more of that! ..more often!

~

Brooks Falls it's good to play...simply play

~

play…
it’s good for the body…
it’s good for the mind…
it’s good for the heart…
it’s good for the spirit…

And… it’s  good for those around us, too!

~

to perhaps shift out of “serious”…
to shift out of “responsibility”
to shift out of “thinking” and “planning”

~

Perhaps???
taking moments…taking hours…
shifting into another “gear”
perhaps…shifting into “play”

~

Sometimes…it’s best to play…to simply play…

~

Perhaps…join me in giving it a try?!?

Brooks Falls inspired by Holly's cubs...simply play and have fun

 ~

A youtube, below,  recorded this morning by Explore.org Brooks Falls, Alaska, Live Cam.…of Holly’s amazing little bear cubs….her spring cub and her adopted yearling…playing delightfully together!

I’m so inspired by watching those little cubs…
by watching children…
by watching other people…

to play more often in life…

(the cubs are extra playful around 1:10 and 4:4o into the youtube… what a pair they are!)
(link to stories about how that remarkable and unusual “adoption” happened:
Alaska Dispatch Newspaper 9/15/2014: newspaper article about Holly and the cubs
ABC news 9/18/2014: wonderful photos and video story about Holly and the cubs  )

  3. Play – something we don’t do enough of. Even a few moments can completely change the energy in your body, in a room, at a gathering. What a delightful video of the bears playing. They are so big

    Most adults have forgotten how to play (if they were allowed to play as children) — and I believe it has added to our internal problems of confusion and chaos! We all need more play in our lives. Thank you for sharing and linking to Nurturing Thursday!

    • I’m guessing many people don’t get enough opportunity to “play”…some of the many joys of being with animals and children are laughter, lightness, brightness and play! I’m happy to share and link to Nurturing Thursdays! 🙂

    It is playing that we learn, everyone knows it, babies and kids learn this way, but we forget very easy the way when we are grown ups.
