Just the other day my daughter and I were sitting in the living room reading a book, my son was snuggled up reading one of his favorite “Diary of Wimpy Kid” books and my daughter was insistent that we read “Charlie Brown’s Christmas”. As we sat there reading the story, my daughter jumps up and says “I finally know how to whistle, want to hear me!” So, for the next 5 minutes or so, my daughter demonstrates her ability to whistle, one whistle at a time. She would whistle a sec, catch her breath, perch her lips, and whistle again. If you can imagine, it was the cutest thing ever! It reminded me of when I was a little kid, expressing my “first time”. The first time I learned how to ride a bike or the first time I learned how to roller skate, all the first you learn as a child and share with the world. As a child, it is the excitement and joy of learning something new and being completely happy and joyful of the complexity of the task, yet simplicity of it. What about as we get older? The excitement, joy, and innocence of learning something new, evolving, and transforming into greater beings is definitely something to share and express. As we get older we can sometimes forget the zest and zing that makes our heart jump for joy when learning something new about life, world around us, and the world within us. Remember to take in the new, share and express what brings you alive and as some would say “tickles your fancy”.
