At what age do we lose our inner child? There is a major snow storm going on right now and the first thought I had this morning was, “oh great, I’m going to be stuck inside all day.” We all know when we were kids; if we woke up and saw a snowstorm there were two things we were most excited for. 1. A snow day if we had school or 2. Playing outside for the entire day. It did not matter how cold or windy it was. All we wanted to do was spend the entire day outside building forts, snow cabins, having snowball fights, or sledding. We would be out there all day long, until we felt our fingers were about to fall off. And when we finally couldn’t take the feeling of frostbite nipping at our fingertips we would run inside for some homemade hot chocolate with marshmallows our mom would have prepared for us. Those moments were probably the best moments of our lives. We didn’t let a snowstorm stop us from enjoying the day or even our lives. We just didn’t care! We just loved everything, and everything that was so simple made us so happy. Now why has that changed with age? I don’t think it has too. I really don’t! I think it’s what we really make of the whole situation. I told myself I wasn’t going to be stuck inside all day, dreading the snow that was coming down. No! Instead I bundled up, like I did when I was a child. I threw on my biggest pair of sweat pants I had, my snow pants, a big coat, mittens, a scarf that covered my entire face, with a tuque and my hood and conquered the storm. King and I went for a long walk, which don’t get me wrong was still cold but seeing King play around in the snow and be so happy made me so happy. Then we both were playing in the snow together. These were the types of things I loved doing as a kid, and we can still love them as we grow up. Go choose to be a child today. Your inner child will thank you, and most importantly you will thank you.
