How to Have More Fun – Video Transcript Below

Hi, this is Tara Marino with I was getting ready this morning; I was actually in the bathroom and I was putting on my makeup, and I caught myself in the mirror. And you know, before I tell you what I heard, or what I experience, I want to tell you a little bit more about me. I’m in the grass and my feet are itching. We’ve got weeds everywhere. All right, can I stand here? Is this the right?

The majority of my spear time or my free time, I spend it reading spiritual books and journaling, and really connecting with what’s my highest purpose; and why am I here. I’m very much in deep conversations with myself or with those around me; and asking those higher-level questions, like what is this all about? Or how can I connect further with the truth of who I am? And so I was thinking about this again this morning when I was putting my makeup on.

I must have bug. Oh, I do. I have ants on me. Just a minute. Here we go. And in a moment of seriousness, this is going to all make sense in a moment, I was in that place again and I saw my face in the mirror, and I was like whoa, I was serious and heavy and my eyes were like hmm. And all of a sudden I heard his voice, and it was like why don’t you lighten up? And I started to laugh and smile because really, what is the point of his journey if we are not enjoying and having fun. And it’s something I really want to stand for, right?

But I still get caught up, and I still find my place in that deep thoughts. And really, the voice I heard said, Tara, stop taking yourself so damn seriously. Lighten up! And I started to laugh; and it’s so true. And that’s what I want to share with you today. I really want to invite you to have fun today and to play.

Now, why is this so important? Really? We’re in those moments of trying to figure it all out and we’re waiting for the answer, it’s really difficult for us to receive. When we are playing, and we are laughing, and we are having fun, we are open to receiving, we’re open to receiving that prosperity. We are open to receiving that opportunity. We are opened up to receiving that answer because we are ready and we’re feeling good. That’s why we’re really here; were all really here to feel good.

So, I’m going to give you a specific assignment, and this is how I want you to do it. Now, if you have kids, this is great you can as yesterday I was actually going into the playroom and my boys had pushed the Ottoman up all the way against the door, so I could barely see in. They had turned the playroom into an indoor soccer stadium so the ball was bouncing from wall to wall to wall. You know, kids know naturally how to do this.

So today, if you have kids, and you know when you find yourself about to yell at them, or tell them very maturely to stop doing what they are doing; stop playing, stop screaming so loud, stop rolling up little pieces of napkin and throwing them at each other or throwing them in the restaurant (yes, I’ve got two boys so this is part of our experience) this time, I want you to join them. I want you to join them. Where you would typically tell them to stop, this time I want you to join them. And if you don’t have kids, I want you to plug into that little mischievous part of you. Maybe you might want to jump on the bed, or have a pillow fight for laugh so hard that you start snorting, I mean like, really. I want you to have fun today.

I want you to let go and I want you to play and I want you to get a little bit outside of your comfort zone. I want you to do something you wouldn’t normally do okay? So today it’s about having fun. It’s about laughing. It’s about playing. It’s about connecting to your Frenchie. And stop taking yourself so damn seriously so I want you to leave a comment below, and I want you to tell me what is it that you’re going to do to have fun today. And stretch yourself a little bit okay? And I’m stalling right now because I practice what I preach. I do. So I’m going to; Yikes! I’m going to do something. Oh boy! Oh boy! Am I really going to do this? This is crazy! This is crazy!

Leave a comment. What are you going to do today to have fun? I’ll see you soon.

    Love it Tara! I'm going to sing and dance around my house like I did when I was 12 :)

  2. Ruth Mutti says:

    Gee, Tara, while you were talking, I was thinking of doing something silly like throwing a rock at a bush or something. However, once I saw you jump in the pool, well, now I'll have to think out of this little box I'm in. I'll post later on what I came up with. Thanks for the laugh, you're terrific!

  3. jessica says:

    You are definitely a hearty-party-fun-sunny-sharing person, individual and human being. Had laugh-giggles-fun moments watching you shake yourself up while diving in... hope covered with 24 hr waterproof makeup! hehehe.. thank you for the ``sunny`` day.

  4. Mary says:

    Tara, you are delightful in your purity: from the ants crawling onto your feet in the grass to the jump into the pool, all shared on camera!
    Thank you for that reminder to lighten up, yes, it's true: "taking life too seriously".
    Today, I think I might wear my ear buds connected to my iPhone into the grocery store and start dancing in the aisles to
    (newly discovered) Jason Mraz. "Like, where I have been?!" Thoughts in every other direction than that of the precious word:FUN
    Thank you, Tara. yay.

    Hello Tara,
    It's so lovely to see you smiling and having fun. This video came to me just at the right time, as I too caught myself taking things so seriously, thinking about my life purpose. I wish I can join you at the pool! Thank you for the reminder to keep my life fun and enjoyable.

  8. dave fricke says:

    oh my god i thought you were goin to strip,thanks for not the pool jump was fine.namaste' dave

  9. dave fricke says:

    i'll agree when we try hard we push away what we want instead of feeling the feeling of what we want an it become attracted to us. This seems simple enough but eludes 85% of the populous me included.Its definitely time for change, but take time to be grateful of self an for hard work you have done getting off beaten path is my solution when i feel bogged down.Thanks tara an dave ps dave i cuse my mom for naming me david till i heard the story of david an golyith an what made him go against the biggest baddest man of all time. The king said any man that fought golyith an won would have the princess hand in marriage house an horses an no taxes.Well david got into wanting princess an went way past fear of fight to what he wanted an thus the tale of david an the slaying of golyith. peace dave

  11. Susan says:

    Great video - thanks for sharing!

    So true that we need to lighten up and enjoy ourselves more!

    I allowed my 'Frenchie' play time today - dressed up in a pretty summer dress, high heals and perfume and strolled the streets of Rome and flirted with some of the charming locals- then I sat at a table in a piazza sipping my tea and enjoying the wonderful day - without thinking (and stressing) about my work and business! (rare for me) Life is so beautiful if we just allow ourselves to experience it!


  12. Cyndi says:

    Thank you! I am so far into serious lately that I cannot even think of what will be fun today! But I will come up with something!

  13. Christine says:

    Well, the day before yesterday I played "dress-up" with my 6 year old and today, I think we'll go to a water park near the house and run through the falling buckets of water, with our clothes and shoes on! OOOOHHHHH YEEEEAAAHHHH!! It's on

  14. LOVE IT! Thank you for the inspiration Tara!

    I just did some cartwheels in the backyard, then danced around the living room with my dogs :-)

  16. JE Low says:

    I went outside with my earphones on and started shaking my bootie on the lawn in the sunshine. :)
    So funny, I jumped in the ocean wearing a silk dress when I did my photo shoot with Christina Morassi . . . it was soooo fun (and there was that little part inside going "oh, I hope I didn't ruin this dress, lol).

    Sending love

  24. Exactly! So nice to see a light, fun video. I laugh and do silly things every day, and can even find humor in some of the most difficult situations. My teenage daughter tells me I need to grow up :) She looks at me like I'm a little crazy but then she always start laughing. I am setting the example for her that we can always laugh and be silly no matter what happens in our outside circumstances. Thank you for this beautiful message Tara!

    I loved it Tara, this was so much fun and wise... today I will have a special time to share with friends and new people, but before that, I will jump in my bed whitout retriction, because that was something I had as a little girl, but I really enjoyed doing it =). Thank yo so much for your light!

  28. Susan says:

    Great advice Tara - I danced around the house with my ipod pretending I was Kylie Minogue ;-) Gosh I feel so much better after a stressful week of work!! Thank you!

  29. Donna says:

    Well, I took a walk to the park this morning, the day was gorgeous !!!!!! I got myself to my spin class, showered there and went straight to an hour and half massage. I came home made a wonderful salad and ate outside in my garden. Now to think of something really silly to do!!!!!!!!!! Not doing much is coming to me so far, what a luxury to take it slow and uncalculated!!!!!!!!!!
