Your Inner Child

Thursday January 29, 2015 #698

“The secret of genius is to carry the spirit of the child into old age, which means never losing your enthusiasm.”

~Aldous Huxley

Today, think about how you can bring a little bit of child-like wonder, playfulness, and naiveté to your life.  All of us face the significant challenges of adult life:  driving our professional careers, dealing with financial pressures, handling family issues, keeping up our health in our ever-aging bodies, etc.  It isn’t what we face, it is the attitude we bring to our normal daily trials.  The secret ingredient to seeing life as relatively joyful on balance is a sense of enthusiasm.  That enthusiasm can come if we can pause and find the child within us – seeing the possibilities ahead of us, and our capacity to hope, to dream, and to believe we can do anything!

Don’t Wait!

“If you wait, all that happens is that you get older.”

~Mario Andretti

As you start back to work and/or your normal daily routines, do not lose your enthusiasm for all the great ideas and goals you set for yourself as 2014 ended and the New Year began.  Spend 5 minutes each morning reminding yourself and regaining your energy which you will need to keep moving forward.  Don’t wait to start this – do it today!
