What do you want to be when you grow up?

Now isn’t that a good question? I wish I knew. First of all, at 37, almost 38, I feel like I should be “grown up.” But hell to the conventional train of thought. I am tired of resposibility. I want to “grow down.” Or should that be “grow back?” At either rate, I want to add more of the “kidness” and innocense in my life.
To see the world though the eyes of a child, where everything is new and fresh- not jaded or tainted by memories and past expecations- that is something I wish for.

I have never considered myself traditional. I have always been a bit off the wall. So maybe I need to be a bit more of that.
I just found on my desk two plagues I had grabbed fromthe dollar store a while back. They say” Sing as thought no one can hear you” and “Dance as no one is watching you.”
My goal should be to do these things each and every day, to help me “grow down.”

  1. I ADORE that quote. It is truly something to aspire to. I love the grow-down thought to – being more kid-like is a great goal.

    Ok, I’m off to remember to dance and sing like no one is watching!
    Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. I like the thought of growing down too! I want to do more of that too. You have me thinking of what I can do to grow down. Maybe I will work on that this weekend!
