This week we are being called to embrace our inner child. To embrace the same wonderment that children have. To look at the world around us with innocent eyes and a sense of curiosity.
When I was thinking about how to share this, I was reminded of the concert I was at last night.
It was a younger crowd and there were some kids around the ages of 10 or 12 there. I remember at one point sitting there and just glancing around and my eyes fell onto one of those kids. I watched as he jumped to the music. I smiled as he swayed and danced. I felt my heart get warm as I saw his dad look down at him and smile. Even though I don’t have kids myself, I could feel the appreciation that dad had for his kid right there.
There are a number of reasons that I chose to never have children of my own. But I do have to admit that there is one thing that always makes me really understand how amazing it must be to be a parent and it is moments just like that.
Having a little one around would be a constant reminder to look at the world differently. And this week we are all being called to look at the world differently. Whether our kids are still young, all grown or something we’ve experienced in a past life…we are being told to play with our inner child this week. To do something fun.
What’s your favorite playful thing to do? Mine is going on swings! I absolutely love to feel that back and forth with the wind in my hair! Drop a comment below and let me know yours.
