We really need to slow down. I was watching the kids the other day and really appreciated the fact that they only think about what we are doing that day or what are we eating for snack. I do realize that not all kids just worry about this, they have harder lives and more worry. But a lot of kids their only worry is play. What a refreshing way to think. I know if we at least can slow down on the weekends or for a short time we can appreciate life more and enjoy it instead of running at 100 mph all the time. We can’t keep that up we will eventually crash. And we sure are not enjoying life that way.
*Everything is new to a child that is part of the reason I like teaching kids, you can see the excitement in their eyes when they learn something new. Everyone also can be their friend. I can’t tell you how many times we have went to the park and how many friends they have made.
*Their imagination is amazing they can be anything they want to be. The sky is the limit. Often they don’t care what you think. They wear mismatched clothing, run around yelling, or don’t care if they have their hair combed or not. I like this one!!!
*Kids do things just because when’s the last time you sat outside in the sun and just let your mind wander? Or played on a swing set, or went down a slide? You don’t have to play to let things go, but too often adults think we always need to be doing something. If you’re not at work, you need to be reading or taking care of the house.
Try to feel like each day is a clean slate and anything can happen!
