I said we were going to do it and I did!
Mikes & I spent the day playing a game called airsoft. If you haven't heard of it please Google it and then play it. It is the one place in the world where I truly get to feel and act like Lara Croft, and the best part is that everyone thinks I am her too, even if it is only for the day.
What I find most refreshing about it however is the way we react and act when we play. As adults we seem to have closed that part of ourselves off; the part of us that wants to compete, pretend and celebrate shamelessly. We close ourselves off to living in Neverland where we can be anyone we want to be and do anything we want to do. Somewhere between all of our learning and growing we stopped living in the land where we write the rules and where we are successful in our outcomes.
That is why I will always make time to play and act like a child. I believe it is so vital to remind ourselves that we are still those innocent children really. We need to remember that we do still live in a world where we can dream, imagine, create. Remember that we live in a world where we are in charge and remind ourselves that we really do have more power than we think.
As Monday rounds the corner I would like to challenge you to start the week with a new mindset - celebrate as if you were 5 and someone had just given you a new toy, love without abandon because you have never known heart ache and live without any fear of condemnation or judgement.
This is your world. This is your life. This is your future.
Remember, everyday is day one.
