When you play, play hard; when you work, don’t play at all.  Theodore Roosevelt

Work can be fun and enjoyable, and even have elements of play; however, we are at work to work—not to goof off, talk on the phone, read FB, chat with friends, or try to do as little as possible. So work hard, not as in struggle and suffering, but as an effort toward accomplishment.

On the other hand, and just as important—play hard! Take time to play, be silly, laugh out loud, and do frivolous things that are not sensible. Having fun is another way to rest. Do something completely different from your normal routine—break out, be free!

Spiritual Contemplation: How do you like to play? When do you take time to play?

Affirmation: I make time for play. This brings balance and joy into my life.
