I love having fun and avoid taking life too seriously, although it can be challenging sometimes. Being light hearted is part of my nature.
My DISC style is high I
If you’re not familiar with what DISC is, it’s a non-judgmental personality and behavioral assessment.
My DISC style is high-I, meaning I’m a sort of influencer. I’s are people who love to be on stage and live to have fun. However, I’m not a total extrovert (unless I’ve had tequila and there’s dancing involved) because I’m also a high-S. An S craves security and is a nurturer.
If none of this makes sense to you, it doesn’t matter. I work with a woman who teaches DISC to corporate trainers so I’m familiar with the concept. She has clients take a style assessment that determines their strengths and weaknesses and how they deal with others. The purpose is to help improve communication skills and interaction between individuals or teams. It’s come in handy for me many times. It’s often used by sales organizations and other businesses.
In astrology, I’m a Sagittarius. We’re laid back, adaptable, and fun-loving.
Taking life too seriously is a prescription for a headache
Just because I’m fun-loving doesn’t mean I need to be at a perennial party. That would be exhausting. I get serious once in a while. But, I do need to keep life interesting with as little stress as possible even if it isn’t always perfect. We can only set intentions and then take actions to steer our lives in the right direction and from there, we improvise.
Everyone’s definition of fun is different
Fun for me is being able to travel several times a year. I love discovering exciting destinations and if I can’t I go to events within my city limits. culture, foodie events, and learning something new stimulates and thrills me. If money were no object I’d travel the world all the time. But darn! I never hooked up with a billionaire Sugar Daddy so I’ll probably keep working freelance until I drop.
You don’t have to spend money to have a good time
When life gets dull, play with a little kid or a puppy dog. They will entertain you in even the worst situations. There are a million things to do to avoid the doldrums. Even simple things like hanging out in a park, relaxing on a beach, or treating yourself to a manicure can break up a dreary day. Just don’t sit around and mope.
It’s all about who you hang out with
I enjoy spending time by myself, but when I’m with people, I like to hang out with friends who are smart, progressive, easy-going, and can take a joke. I avoid confrontation because arguing isn’t my thing even though some people thrive on it. Friends who love to laugh and have a sense of humor are gold.
When people are taking life too seriously they can sometimes be energy vampires who suck the life out of you. Avoid toxic people at all costs. Life is too short to deal with them.
