Welcome to everyone new this week!
I'm dying to show you my favourite photo of my (now) teenage son. He walked up to me, age two, and said, "DO YOU LIKE MY BAND-AID?"
Can you see it in his hair?
I laughed until I cried but also ... ouch!
I keep this photo on my office wall to remind myself of so many things. That kids are unafraid. That they love what they love. That they live in the moment and are just not fussed about whether something is a good idea or not.
They go for what they want.
(Sneaky band-aids! Applied everywhere!)
But we're adults and we get so caught up in all the shouldn'ts, don't we? We live ahead of ourselves or -- maybe more often -- we live behind. And we forget that all our joy is in the now.
So today, for you, here's an invitation...can we live with a little more YES and a little less SHOULD? A little more abandon? A little more chasing of what we love?
Please say you will.
Enjoy your weekend, everyone, and -- as always -- be fun to live with!
