We tend to think there are places for work and there are places for play. But what if they’re the same place?
Joyful Springers forge their own playground. They know that anything can be fun with the right attitude, and they seek that fun everywhere.
Just because you’re doing something important doesn’t mean it has to be solemn or studious. In fact, injecting playfulness into an intense situation can be just what you need to raise your mental clarity and your abilities to the point where what seemed challenging before now seems like, well, Springer’s play.
[Poppy and Sweet Pea are back. This photo was taken on a banner day. Their momma Denise wrote to me, "Snow AND a new toy!!! ... Poppy can't resist checking out new toys, so a game of keep away just elevated the excitement to a whole new level." The clever girls proceeded to turn their backyard into a delightful playground. ]
