Do you remember being a child, running through fields without a care in the world, giggling at the smallest things and enjoying the simple pleasures of life? As we grow older, we tend to take on more responsibilities, become more serious and forget the importance of playfulness and joy. But what if I told you that letting go of your seriousness could be the key to unlocking success and experiencing more joy in life?


Letting go of 'seriousness' helps you be free!


Think of yourself as a kite. Seriousness can be the string that keeps you grounded, limiting your potential to fly higher and experience the full range of winds and currents. Letting go of that string can give you the freedom to soar higher, feel the rush of the wind, and experience the joy of being lifted to new heights.


My shift from 'seriousness' to playfulness and joy.


I remember a time when I was so caught up in the seriousness of life that I had forgotten how to have fun. I had just started a new job and was determined to prove myself as a serious and dedicated employee. I spent long hours at work, often skipping lunch breaks and taking on more projects than I could handle. I thought that being serious was the only way to succeed.


But as time went on, I realised that my seriousness was taking a toll on my mental and physical health. I was stressed, anxious, and felt like I was constantly running on empty. It wasn't until I took a break from work and spent some time playing with my nephews who were young at that time,  that I realised the importance of letting go of seriousness and embracing playfulness. As we laughed and played together, I felt a weight lifted off my shoulders and a renewed sense of energy and creativity.


Letting go of seriousness can have many benefits in our personal and professional lives:


Increased creativity

When we allow ourselves to be playful and curious, we open ourselves up to new ideas and perspectives that can lead to greater creativity and innovation.

Better relationships

When we are more lighthearted and fun-loving, we tend to attract like-minded people and build stronger, more meaningful relationships.

Improved health

Laughter and playfulness have been shown to have numerous health benefits, including reduced stress levels and improved immune system function.

More success

Embracing playfulness and joy can actually lead to greater success in our professional lives, as we become more creative and innovative in our approach to problem-solving.

Greater fulfilment

Ultimately, letting go of seriousness and embracing joy can lead to a more fulfilling and satisfying life, as we allow ourselves to fully experience the simple pleasures of life and connect with our authentic selves.


As a final word of encouragement, it's important to remember that life is too short to take everything seriously. By letting go of our seriousness and embracing playfulness and joy, we can unlock new levels of creativity, build stronger relationships, improve our health, achieve greater success, and experience a more fulfilling and satisfying life. So go ahead, unleash your inner child and let the winds of joy lift you to new heights!
