Kids are funny little people, from their complete innocence to their goofy expressions and actions. Kids have always fascinated me with their complete lack of inhibitions. You know there is a lot that we can learn from these small little creatures.

I had the wonderful opportunity to work with a few kids briefly at work the other day, and I was in awe at their tiny little characters. It made me wonder, at what point do we lose our fun, no restraint excitement and positive outlooks on life? When did we all become so serious that we can’t even look people in the eye, hold fun conversations with others without worry of offending the other, be uninhibited with just being us and thinking that everyone is a potential for being a great friend.


Somewhere between childhood and adulthood we lose our trust and vibrancy for life, but I find myself asking why?! Why does adulting have to be so negative and "unfun"?

I am all about finding the fun in life again; not everything has to be so serious or the end of the world.

My thoughts on the world in one sentence… small things are ridiculous to even hold on to and waste energy on, drama and gossip is for the birds, and negative people suck!

We need to go back to the mind of a child and love more freely, accept things that we cannot change and laugh with each other A LOT! Kids are brilliant in their actions, something we can all use some learning from.

Wake up every day and take on the day, by enjoying life, people and situations as new, fun and exciting!

Wake up every day and take on the day, by enjoying life, people and situations as new, fun and exciting. Thinking to ourselves what adventure awaits me today? How can I be a friend to everyone? (Something my dad always told me ?) and how can I brush off and laugh at the stupid little things that are freaking not the end of the world?

Kids are the creation of our all mighty Creator. He has created them uniquely and wonderfully. Even if we have lost what he originally created us to be and how he intended us to act, it is never too late to revert back the mind and character of a child.

Today, I challenge you to find a stranger, laugh with them, engage with them and stop looking at your cell phone, there is a whole world out there filled with some pretty darn fascinating people!

Let's Love More!
