We all need to make time to play. Play is any activity done for enjoyment & recreation rather than a serious or practical purpose. Play has many health benefits.  It is the ultimate vitality generator, increases feelings of optimism & improves the functioning of our immune system. Play also increases our connection with others and enhances our sense of belonging and community. The more we play, the more we can master it as a skill.

For 27+ years I’ve managed my crisis management PR firm, so, when I also started modeling and then writing this blog both where a form of play for me. Yet, over the past four years I’ve had the privilege of learning the business of modeling. My job as a model is to show up in shape, be professional, shine and help sell a product. That’s the job. Yet, it’s a fun job and for me it is also a form of play — albeit serious play. Writing this blog is a form of play, too…yet serious play as well. I am committed to sharing valuable information, that I seriously believe in.  And on that note — I want to point out: The best kind of play becomes play with financial rewards. If I can be sincere in my play, choosing my roles and “playmates” carefully and at the same time make money? — I’m all for that.  To me when we can manage to do this, it becomes the merger of the best of all worlds. 

So I encourage you to Play. Do more of what relaxes you. The magical unseen forces of life have a marvelous way of helping us succeed the more we keep doing what we love. In the past three years since allowing myself to accept and share the many sides of my personality the rewards are proving to be beyond my wildest dreams. If I can encourage each of you to know that dreams can come true and that we should all keep trying and believing — working towards all that we love, while having fun along the way and trusting that we should share it — my life, and yours, will be far better. Onward & Upward. Love, Dian
