Be a Kid

“Children are not only innocent and curious but also optimistic and joyful and essentially happy. They are, in short, everything adults wish they could be.” – Carolyn Haywood

Kids wish they could be big people so that they can stay up late and not have to eat vegetables they don’t like and get to drive a car.  And almost all of us grown-ups wish we could be kids and have summer vacations and eat whatever and dream of a bright future and read books and laugh.

Imagine being able to amuse yourself for an hour or more with an empty box, your imagination running wild from Space Man Spiff to driving in the Indy 500 to being a turtle.

Then having lunch that someone else makes for you, before getting back to the hard work of playing and learning and dreaming.  Maybe take a nap.

To a “big person” this sounds like a dream vacation, a fantasy.

Be a kid again.  Have fun, dream, run at full-tilt and then sleep like a child.
