If you look around you, you’ll see that children are spontaneous and free. They pretend; they fly through the air with joy and laughter. We all need to go back to a time and place when we felt the same way. What do you want to learn today? What vision do you want to instill in yourself for success? How will you do that? Will you go outside and play? Children are playful and creative. They learn until they are stymied by adults. Are you childlike? Are you happy doing what you do? Can you take the simplest things like a stone and it make it magical?
Gifted children are defined as those that reflect the values of society. In an article on rethinking giftedness, many studies have occurred. It makes me think that we are all gifted in some means. Our ways of thinking, acting and engaging with one another depending on where we live and how we fit into our communities change constantly. We can develop our talents with joy and spontaneity.
For some of us, we want to be deep into nature. We connect to the earth and its beauty through a hike in the country. We walk into a cemetery to pray and meditate. We pick up leaves in the fall, walk through puddles after a rainstorm, or shy away from anything that is fun. We have learned to stop playing and just be serious.
Now is the time to rethink and play. Just like kids trying to catch lightning bugs, you might try to catch the raindrops and pick the flowers. You might smell the dandelions and enjoy the shape of the weeds. This climate and pandemic are in many ways changing our response to life. We can walk more out of doors. We can connect instantly and visit online. Enjoy today. Just believe everything is perfect today. In so many ways that we can’t see, things are improving and making life the best. Be childlike and free today. Move forward with a new step!
