How Do you Embrace Your Inner Child


Nearly everyday something pops into my head that helps to inspire me in my life. There are times that it has such an impact on me, that I wonder if it would inspire others as well, if I share it?

One of the things that I often think about is the fact that I still dance frequently, even though I'll be 50 years old in four months and I have a balance disorder.

My 20-year-old son often smiles at my random moments of bursting-forth joyfulness. [Yes, I dance, sing and generally let myself have joyous, random moments of silliness on a frequent basis.]

Life can be SO stressful and fast-paced and we (woman in particular) often forget to take moments for ourselves, and experience those joyful moments when it almost seems like time stands still.

What fun things do you do to embrace your inner child? Here are some of mine:
-Color in coloring books
-puzzles
-play board games
-let myself express moments of silliness
-skip, sing, dance etc.
