While I was visiting our daughter on one of my trips, our three year old grandson was trying to figure out his new racing game on the Wii. "Help me, Drander, help me."
We've had the Wii at home for several years, and I have always insisted that I didn't have time to play the games. I was too busy to sit there for hours figuring out how to master them.
When my grandson needed help, he didn't understand that I had a firm policy against playing. I had overheard enough while the older kids played to know a little bit of what to do. I figured out how to get him back on track and racing again.
He handed me another remote and said, "You go, Drander, go!" So much for a firm policy against playing. I was off and racing. And we had FUN!
Lighten up. Don't be so serious, or too busy to play. Relax, enjoy. Smile and laugh. Race and win! (Ooops, my competitive side is coming out...)
