Finding the Joy and Fun of #HolyMischief
There's nothing quite like the feeling of Holy Mischief. That sense of knowing you're doing something that both breaks the rules a bit and is RIGHT. It's the kind of fun that can only be had when you're living life on the edge of God's grace. And it's a joy that we should all experience more often! Here are some tips on how to find the Holy Mischief in your life:
1) Let go of your inhibitions. Be willing to try new things, even if they seem a little crazy at first.
2) Stop taking yourself so seriously! Learn to laugh at yourself and at life's many absurdities.
3) Find a community of like-minded mischievous folks who will egg you on in your hijinks.
4) Live each day with a sense of adventure, expecting the unexpected and embracing whatever comes your way.
5) Seek out opportunities for harmless tomfoolery wherever you can find it.
6) Most importantly, don't forget to have lots and lots of fun!
"HolyMischief" defined and why it's important
Holy Mischief is a behavior that might sound contradictory, but it's the yin to many yangs. It's like breaking the rules in order to keep them - being wild and crazy in order to honor one's core values. In essence, holy mischief is doing something unexpected but that creates a sense of good vibes or moments of joy. The power of holy mischief lies in bringing us out of our mundane routines, connecting us more intimately with the deeper aspects of life - those found outside the bounds of protocol or procedure. When we commit ourselves to holy mischief, we become creators and open ourselves up to new ideas, energies, and transformative potentials. So let's be bold and break away from convention for a bit in the name of something great: good old-fashioned holy mischief!
Let your inner child out and have some fun!
Don't let adulthood rob you of the joy and excitement that comes with being a kid! Instead, why not tiptoe back in time and embrace the little things in life, like playing tag or spending an hour with a coloring book. Reconnecting with your inner child is the perfect way to inject some of the lost fun in your life. So don't be afraid to let down your walls, put away your worries for just a few minutes and jump into a spontaneous dance party (just remember to turn down the volume if you live in close proximity to others!). The best part is that there's no age limit on having fun - so make sure you cherish every opportunity that comes your way!
I'd like to leave you with the words of Proverbs 17:22 which says “A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.” Let us all remember to keep our hearts filled with joy and laughter as we venture out into the new year and let our (#Holy)mischievousness take flight!
Until Everyone Hears,
