I came across this quote the other day and found so much truth in it!
"No one is as confident in their life as a five year old wearing a princess dress in a grocery store."
The author of this little nugget of truth is unknown, but they sure hit the nail on the head! You know you have seen it to and know it to be true. The Spider-Man costume at the dentist office; the Unicorn headgear at the mall; the oversized rain boots and ladies purse at the park. Little kids are just so uninhibited! So free! So sure of themselves!
It is refreshing and keeps life in perspective to see them live their lives to the fullest, free of the confines of the adult world and fully immersed in their realm of imagination. It gives us a glimpse of our former selves, before we got all grown up and caught up in what others think of us. Before we experienced the hurt and alienation of another's harsh words. Before judgement and hostility sideswiped our innocence.
We really need our littles to challenge us to get back to the basics of what life is all about. Be yourself. Be friendly. Be honest. Be fun. Be real. Be fearless. Be imaginative.
Just be you!
