Children understand the mechanics of accomplishment: take a risk, try and try again, and bask in the accolades that follow.
As I grow older, I wonder at what point in life I lost that simple understanding. Now, as I watch my granddaughters, I feel compelled to regain some of that old spunk: tackle the new, and be more forgiving of mistakes, in favour of rewards that follow. I want to be new again – to view life through the lens of accomplishment.
I always thought that age brings wisdom, and with wisdom I could succeed. Now I see that all I needed was a little inspiration, sprinkled with a modicum of free-spiritedness.
Hope you are all having an inspired week!
