Let’s go back in time today. Are you ready? Get comfortable it’s going to be a long ride, a trip down memory lane. Grab a blanket, some hot chocolate, and settle in. Do you remember what outside felt like when you were little, the smells and the feel of the grass or dirt beneath your feet? Do you remember when you embarked on grand adventures that would last for hours? Only limited by your imagination. Nothing stood in your way. The fearlessness you had as a child. A moment in time where everything was possible and nothing could stand in your way you couldn’t even imagine an obstacle like that. We need to be like that again having unlimited faith in ourselves and our ability to overcome everything.
When did you stop believing in yourself? When you did you stop envisioning the things you wanted? When did you stop entertaining yourself? When is the last time you let yourself go on a grand adventure? Have you used your imagination lately? Have you played? What is something simple that you loved when you were a kid? Hot chocolate? Warm cookies? Riding your bike, a skateboard? You are the boss of you, why can’t you do it only for a few minutes? You may have to learn to regain your balance, it may take time to get better at it, but you weren’t a quitter then and you are not a quitter now. We challenged ourselves day in and day out, mastering balance, successfully jumping a ramp, facing our fears head-on. Overcoming everything with unapologetic and unrelentless determination.
You are still that person buried beneath expectations and responsibilities and you are just as capable as you were then. There are simple things you love yet do not indulge in, get reacquainted with that amazing part of you. Who cares what others think, you certainly didn’t care then. Laugh loud, laugh hard, and have fun. See you there.
