I almost talked myself out of the parade several times, and I would have missed this completely zany, liberating experience of doing something for the sheer joy of it. So much in life is serious, but allowing ourselves to do something just because we want to is its own reward.
Go out and be silly on purpose – start a parade, be fearless. The only thing you have to lose is your fear. So what if you fall on your face? In the process, you’ve defeated one of your greatest fears and won. Get on the float!

More on the carnival theme tomorrow, when the Creative Blog Carnival goes live… yes, yes, it’s late. But good things come to those who wait my darlings!
