A child shall lead them

My five-year-old is in half day kindergarten. When I go pick him up the three-year-old preschoolers are out on the playground. I like to get there a little early and watch them. They run around, literally in a circle around the playground, shrieking, laughing and just enjoying life. It’s very apparent that they are happy. Sure, sometimes they get hurt, or someone does something mean. They cry for a moment, then, miraculously, they get over it and move on to running around, shrieking and laughing again. Their emotions are so pure and unpolluted.

I need this daily jolt of pure joy. I need the reminder to live in the moment, to enjoy everything. How easily they get over trials and forgive others. I need to not let stress or worry take away my happiness. I shouldn’t even let my goals get in the way of enjoying the journey.

So, here’s to being joyful, to enjoying the moment, and not letting darkness rule the world.


  1. I miss the innocence of childhood. Adult-ing is tough!

  2. I know what you mean. Where did we lose the joy, fun, and ability to be spontaneous like kids.

  3. When my kids were little, I wished I could hold them there. I knew the day would come when the boo-boos of life couldn't be fixed with a kiss and an ice cream cone. But learning to be resilient young has taught them to keep their stride through the tougher challenges in life.

    Maybe you can hold onto the spirit of childhood.

  4. So true. We need less complicated in our lives now. Adulting is so over rated!

  5. I love it! This is easier to remember with my two littlests in the house, at least until my oldest comes home from college and stresses us all out with his craziness. =) Maybe I need to drive him to the park and make him watch little kids playing for a bit, eh? ;)

    So I was really bad about getting out in September...because I could barely sit for more than a couple minutes, BUT I nominated you for something in my last post. Yay. :)

  6. Living in the moment is so important. And it's good for our sanity too.

  7. I have a child in kindergarten too. *Fist pump!*

    Do enjoy every moment. They grow so fast.

  8. Yes! I love children's unfiltered joy :-)

  12. Ask your regular physician if they can refer you doctor to recommend a quality chiropractor. Even if referrals aren't required for chiropractor services, your doctor can suggest a good chiropractor.satta king

  13. Often when people try to save money, their approach is to try to spend less so they have more leftover to save later. If you are serious about improving your personal finance, you should do the reverse. When you receive your paycheck, set aside money that you want to save first, and then use the remainder for spending. By immediately restricting your budget, you will save more effectively.satta king

  14. Don't believe the hype drinking coffee. Unless you have a medical condition that suggests otherwise, a cup of coffee each day is not bad for you. It may even be a good thing. Consult your doctor if you're not sure if coffee consumption is something you should be engaging in.
