I am working behind the scenes so you can lighten up a bit on yourself. Let joy bubble up from beneath the surface by allowing your playful side to peek through. Go ahead – laugh a little at yourself and your circumstances. This will help ease any strain caused by them otherwise. Remind yourself that what matters most is to live with love. Being able to shrug off minor irritations will help shift the weight to a more balanced perspective. You don’t have to live under all that pressure. After all, -this, too, shall pass.

Be kind to yourself today. Actually, do that EVERY day. It will be easier to treat others kindly when you practice this on yourself. Don’t beat yourself up over everything you eat, say, and do. Rehashing everything in your head isn’t serving you well, either. The truth is, I love you unconditionally! I want you to enjoy your food, cut yourself some slack, and be more playful today. Your kindness, like your compassion, will shine through. You are helping others in ways you may not even recognize.

I give you this day. Instead of begrudgingly or warily getting started, try to see it as a gift,- full of unanticipated surprises placed by Me for you and interspersed ahead. Recognize that I am already there in the unknown. Picture Me beckoning you from around the corner to accompany Me. Be curious alongside Me. I am a safe and even playful companion. I will help lessen the fear and anxiety.

Try being playful today! Don’t worry so much about how you look or how you come across to others. Just enjoy life in a more carefree way. My Spirit likes it when you dance and laugh. I created you with an ability to have some fun. It’s not “silly” or embarrassing. Being lighthearted is essential for renewal. See how this choice helps you manage your anxiety better. Let down your guard and play!

I need all of you. Not just a little bit like leftovers after a full meal has been dished out. I want your whole self committed to Me: your work time and your leisure. Part of giving Me your whole self means paying attention to how you find balance. I call you to intentionally set aside time for rest and for “play” because your busy head needs time off. Fill your cup with My reservoir of love by spending time with others you enjoy and who love you back. See what this can do to renew your heart.
Today, listen to My sincere call to you to slow your pace. I ask you to release these fervent efforts to always be on top of ‘tackling the next thing’. Instead, enjoy the present moment. I want to see you laugh out loud, or listen joyfully and open your eyes in wonder, amazement, and appreciation of My beauty placed in your surroundings. Morning light dancing through the leaves, bird song, the smell of green apples or fresh laundry. The work will still get done in due time. Hear Me beckoning you in small moments as you proceed through your day, and at the end, take time to recall our vivid encounters. Relax, enjoying My Peaceful Presence with you.
It’s perfectly okay to enjoy yourself now and then. Go ahead and cut loose a little, letting down your guard. Allow your playful self to emerge. I am not a God of drudgery. Stop begrudging life’s circumstances and let lightheartedness back in today. See how a little fun can ignite your Spirit.
