I had 2 opportunities to play ball inside with my daughter this month. It was precarious. Things could have been broken, but it was worth the risk. Our relationship was strengthened. That is more important than ANY THING I own.
The first time we played ball, it was totally for her. It was cold and raining and she had softball evaluations later that day. So we played inside. It was fun and spontaneous.
On the second occasion it was for me. I bought a volleyball. I love/loved volleyball and had not played in so many years. My daughter choose one for me at the store. It was so colorful. She happened to pick it up, for a few minutes, I had fun, I had some play time, and was able to teach her a couple of things.
Did you noticed I mentioned fun 2x already? FUN IS GOOD. FUN CAN BE SPONTANEOUS. Fun can happen indoors on rainy days for short or long periods of time.
Making time for "playing ball", being spontaneous even when conditions are not ideal is really important in my opinion. You can play in so many ways. Maybe it's not ball in the house. Maybe it's a video tournament with your kids. Maybe you can make a masterpiece.
Fun in important in life. It renews our energy. It connects us to each other, perhaps a spouse, friend, child, or parent. So if FUN knocks on your door in a way that's not practical-Like when it's raining and you might break something. I challenge you to take that risk. To jump in and have spontaneous fun. Build your energy and make connections.
My advice Play ball inside! I think you might see that it was worth it!
