“Maybe we should develop a Crayola bomb as our next secret weapon. A happiness weapon. A beauty bomb. And every time a crisis developed, we would launch one. It would explode high in the air – explode softly – and send thousands, millions, of little parachutes into the air. Floating down to earth – boxes of Crayolas. And we wouldn’t go cheap, either – not little boxes of eight. Boxes of sixty-four, with the sharpener built right in. With silver and gold and copper, magenta and peach and lime, amber and umber and all the rest. And people would smile and get a little funny look on their faces and cover the world with imagination.” ~Robert Fulghum
I believe that in each of us there lives a little child who wants to and loves to come out and play.
The biggest problem with growing up, is that we think we need to get all serious and boring. But that’s a whole load of hoohaa! We seem to feel that playing is only limited to childhood. When in reality WE grown ups NEED to play the most!
Cause we are SO caught up with SO much. So much stress, so much responsibility, so many commitments, so many things to get done, so many problems to solve…etc etc etc. The list can be endless and pretty boring. And I am not willing to live the boring life.
No freakin’ Way!
So here is a short fun video with 7 Ways to Keep Your Inner Child Alive. And I practice each and every one of them.
My new obsession is wanting to go back to painting and coloring, cause I used to be a pretty good artist in my childhood days. I do take out all that artistic love in making inspirational posters and videos on my Positive Provocations Facebook page 🙂 Come join me over there if you’re on facebook. Lets connect and have colourful fun! While that satisfies me, there is still a certain satisfaction to getting your hands full of paint and colours 🙂 Will keep you guys posted on whatever I create ofcourse.
Enjoy the video darlings! And if you enjoy it, please share it with your friends and family. More the merrier 🙂
And this quote, oh my, this is SO me:
“I am often accused of being childish. I prefer to interpret that as child-like. I still get wildly enthusiastic about little things. I tend to exaggerate and fantasize and embellish. I still listen to instinctual urges. I play with leaves. I skip down the street and run against the wind. I never water my garden without soaking myself. It has been after such times of joy that I have achieved my greatest creativity and produced my best work.” ~Leo F. Buscaglia
