Make Love Monday #4

Make Love Monday -- a mission to create a more loving world by being aware of how we interact with each other and choosing connection. Choose to connect with the offered practice sometime during the week and report back on how it goes.

It occurred to me lately that while many of the Make Loves will be about how to connect with people outside of yourself (my personal journey) plenty more could be about how to connect with the person who lives inside of yourself. You know, make Love to yourself. In honor of that realization, this week is a personal week.

Your assignment, should you choose to accept it is:

Have some Fun

For real. When is the last time you, as an adult, set aside an hour or two to do something not because you're supposed to or it makes you healthier, but just for the pure enjoyment of it. (ok, so it might just be 20 minutes) Caveats include that watching TV or using the internet, or going to the movies don't exactly count. Are you at a loss? If so, think back to when you were 5 or 8 or 10... where did you spend your day? What was your main mission? What brought you Joy? Try it. And if it's being in nature, don't just "go for a walk" actually sit on a swing or roll in the grass until you giggle, or dip your feet in a stream... well, you get the picture. Anyway, court yourself in the way only you know how. (and if you want to bring along a friend, please do, but don't get into heavy stuff, light, laughter filled conversation only, please)
Let me know how it goes!

Have a Make Love Monday tip? Hook me up! Send me an email at with MLM in the subject line. I'd love to share it (and if you get up on the blog you'll get a free class with me if you're in town, and something else awesome if you're not)

I totally had a dance party to gypsy music -- complete with scarves and dramatic dance moves -- with my 2 year old yesterday. It was SO much fun!!
