Play and control cannot co-exist.
“We don’t feel like we can play. What do you do to play? What do you do that brings joy to you? What are your hobbies? These are critical rhythms. Play is a rhythm. It allows you to release control. Play and control cannot co-exist.”
Austin’s type 9 personality likes harmony and relaxation. I love that he brings fun and play to our family! He can instantly become a kid and if you’ve seen him around kids- you know it’s true! Saturday, we played frisbee on the beach. It was a joy watching him genuinely laugh as our friends threw the frisbee. Then the frisbee went in the water and it was gone... my control nature (enter Type 1) began to think about the cost of the frisbee we lost, if only they weren’t playing so close to the water...what if? Austin’s personality didn’t mind losing the frisbee if they were having fun. He even knew it would be a risk we discussed earlier. It’s memories we collect not things! Thanks to God the frisbee did wash back up on shore and more play was to be enjoyed! 🙌🏼 🏖
When was the last time you played? When did you let go of control so play could exist?
