The Whole World is a Playground

While I was dropping my son off at school this morning, I snapped this pic of the playground. I was struck by the energy and exuberance all around me and how all the kids turned the playground into whatever they wanted it to be. Enthralled in the moment, they run, they sing, they dance, they play, they draw, they chase. They are free.

The playground isn’t just a playground. It is a basketball arena, a stage, a canvas. They are joyful and jubilant.

As we go into the weekend, I want to take this attitude with me. I want to create moments of bliss with my family and turn wherever I am into something inspiring. I want to play and experience freedom and flow, if even just for a little.

What will you do this weekend to find even just one of these moments?

La Jolla Sunset

La Jolla Sunset

Went to beautiful La Jolla and stumbled upon another picture perfect sunset. It was as if we were surrounded my magic- the air, the whooshing of the waves and the majestic cotton candy sky. In this busy world and life it is so nice to take a moment out to enjoy God’s gorgeous nature on display, and no better place for that than La Jolla Cove.

Welcome to Chasing Havers

Welcome to Chasing Havers

Chasing Havers is underway! I am very excited to share what I am learning in my life about how to be the best parent, wife, person, friend, athlete, artist and overall adventurer. I plan to share posts, pictures, and anything inspiring.

I want everyone in the world to live the best life that they possibly can. I don’t think life is perfect, but I think that we can give everything we have to design the best life for ourselves and our families. I am setting out in this blog to journal my way toward the best life and sharing with you what I have learned and will continue to learn along the way. Because what is life without adventure, learning and fun?

These days most of my adventures take place in San Diego, CA where I live with my husband and two boys. My past adventures have taken me around the world and I will share some travel pics and stories along the way. For now though we spend our days with family and friends, at the beach, in the gym, on the tennis court, in the pool, cooking, reading, writing and definitely playing. Good thing my childhood nickname was Play Play Maloney, because even today I do a lot of playing.

In fact, play helps define the context of my life. I try to bring fun and playfulness to everything I do. I teach my kids through play and look for the lightness in life. I can’t wait to keep this crazy adventure going and to hear from you on what works for you and what inspiration you have gleamed. Cheers!
