"If it's not fun, don't do it."

Big Mike G and Me. Dunns River Falls State Park, Ocho Rios, Jamaica. 

THIS IS FUN! On my recent vacation to Jamaica, Big Mike and I decided to up the ante, so to speak... We were climbing a section of waterfalls, having the time of our lives in one of the most gorgeous tropical settings I have ever seen -- and then an idea popped into my head: "Let's do handstands right here in the rushing water, mere feet from a cliff!" Mike was right there with me, and with no hesitation whatsoever, we popped a couple handstands. The most fun EVER. Who else can say they did this? 

This was the hot topic amongst my friends today at the gym. If we're not going to have fun, we're not going to do it. Period. I love it. 

If YOU aren't having fun with your life. CHANGE IT. "But I have this to do, and I have that to do." OK. Maybe. But you also have a choice. You have the choice to make your like FUN, or SERIOUS and BORING. 

Life is about one thing: living powerfully and living a life you love. If you are not living a dream and loving your life, you aren't living. Period. 


  1. I couldn't agree more! FUN & EXCITEMENT are 2 of my favorite words in the dictionary.

  2. haha I climed the waterfalls with my folks one time and we had to wear those special shoes but the damn tour guides went barefoot. They literally had soles of skin. Looks like an awesome trip!

  3. awesome pic! looks like an awesome time! refreshing!
