Today I have been jumping! and jumping and jumping! I played with my four year old grandson at a local indoor playground for children. Amazing! Trampoline floors spread out everywhere! Big foam cubes thick as carpet to jump into! Easy to jump into, hard to climb out! But I could not stop smiling!
Small toddlers were everywhere, jumping , smiling, laughing! What a treat for me! So easy to live in the moment! I thought “these kids no how to do it! Not only how to jump with no fear, but to enjoy life and keep their mind with their body.” I wanted to be like them!
So good to try a new activity. I think there have been times in my life where I have, as the saying goes, “lived in a rut”. No longer will I just placidly fall into that role. I have choices and plan to try new activities all the rest of my life. I do not want fear to be in any part of my life. Life is good. I want to embrace new things, allow Change to empower me, not bring me down and discourage me.
Children are such wonderful teachers! I hope children are always a part of my life. I have come to realize that of all the abundance in my life children account for a great part of that abundance. I could not imagine a world that existed without the Presents of children.
So go! Try something new! Empower yourself! Take a child with you if you like! The world needs your smile too!
In Light and Hope, Joan
