The final “F” of #Oola is Fun….

(I know, some of you are “all in” on this— and some of you are wondering, “What in the world?”)

Either way, hear me out….

👌

First, the definition…

Fun =

An intentional pause from our inherent drive towards “productivity” in order to rest + restore the body, soul, and spirit, as well as enjoy the good gifts God grants for our enjoyment.

👌

Here’s why I think it’s important…

First, look at how the universe is wired!!

There’s a certain way things work, a way of “off” and “on” that’s built into the fabric of the universe.

Look at the Creation story, for instance…

Evening and morning… 

And look at when Adam & Eve are created, at the end of the 6th day… 

And then what they step into…

A rhythm of on and off. 

In other words, we’re NOT made to always be on…

We’re made to live a beat of 6 and 1, 6 and 1, 6 and 1….

A rabbit trail…


🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁


Take the drums as an example. No musician hustles on stage more than the drummer. They keep the rhythm, they physically push the limits, and they create MUSIC…

But the music happens because of the moments of rest…

No rest = all noise.

Yep. Rhythm only happens because of the beat of times ON and cadence of times OFF.

🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁

Maybe we can learn a lot from the drummer…

Maybe we can learn about this thing called hustle and bring some balance in…

Why don’t we? Well…

Second, think about WHY we step out of that rhythm- the cadence for which we were created.

Why don’t we pause, day-dream, take days off, rest… sleep longer…?

Why we don’t just “check out” of producing and lean into fun….

👉 Because we strive. 

And why do we strive? 

👉 Because our identity is often so wrapped in what we do.

Bottom line…

No rest = no rhythm = all noise.

Yep. Rhythm only happens because of the beat of times ON and cadence of times OFF.

Maybe we can learn a lot from the drummer…

Maybe we can learn about this thing called hustle and bring some balance in…
