Have fun, feel alive, that is what 2016 is going to be about. For too long I have watched my kids have fun and simply sat on the sidelines, but in an effort to feel alive and create a happier life I have decided to put the phone down and join in.
My eldest turned nine this month, so we decided to celebrate by visiting Rainbows End an adventure/fun park in Auckland, New Zealand. My usual stance would have been to simply take photos or videos, but this time I didn’t get my phone out. Instead, I hopped on the rides with the kids. I went on one ride with my cousin called the ‘Invader’ and couldn’t stop smiling in between screaming out with utter joy. I went on that ride three times because I was having a blast! Why had I been missing out on this? It felt SO DAMN GOOD!! We spent the entire day there, enjoying as many rides as we could. When we got home, we were all exhausted but completely happy. It had been an awesome day.
It got me thinking about other things that I could do as an adult, that would create that FUN factor in my life. It means saying YES to things that I normally wouldn’t say yes to. First on my list, is to book tickets to the Live More Awesome World’s Biggest Waterslide … yes, I am going to push my fear of getting into a swimsuit aside and obviously my fear of death, lol, and say a big fat YES TO FUN!
Do you want to ride a 600m inflatable slide down a picturesque West Auckland slope? YES!!!
Hang with awesome people, listen to some funky beats and eat good food? YES
And YES, it is the WORLD’S BIGGEST WATERSLIDE! That is something I want to be able to say that I have done.
Next, I have booked myself into The Color Run with a bunch of girls. This is a 5km run, which I will no doubt walk, filled with color and FUN! I am certainly NO runner but will be able to manage the course because it will be packed with AWESOMENESS!
The Color Run is a five-kilometer, un-timed run, where thousands of participants, or as they like to call them “Color Runners”, are doused from head to toe with coloured powder at each kilometer. With only two rules, the idea is easy to follow:
1 . Wear white at the starting line
2 . Finish plastered in colour!
The fun doesn’t stop at the Finish Line! The EPIC Finish Festival will give the chance for all the fabulous Color Runners to burn a few extra calories by showing off their finest dance moves! Think music, dancing and of course the Color Throws! Looks like this is the best post-5k party on the planet!
Join me and make 2016 a year filled will FUN and ADVENTURES to help live a life filled with happiness!!!!
