“Isn’t it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet?” - L.M. Montgomery. Wasn’t it always amazing how the end of a school day always felt so final, so finished? The break between June and September seemed like a lifetime. Because when you are young, every day feels like an eternity and a new day means new opportunities to make new friends, explore new adventures, learn new things. Children don’t carry baggage from one day to the next. They start fresh, always.

“A day without laughter is a day wasted.” - Charlie Chaplin Children have the beautiful ability to find joy all around them. Just watch the humor a child can find in a shopping mall or at the park. They see silliness everywhere.

“Above all, be the heroine of your life, not the victim.” - Nora Ephron When a child tells you a story about school or the soccer field, they are usually the hero of their story. The world revolves around them. As we age, we don’t want to be conceited or egotistic, so we downplay our accomplishments and achievements. We don’t want to brag. But in doing so, we often slip to the side of self-deprecation. We put ourselves down to make others feel better or to be more relatable. Modesty becomes an admirable quality and we start to convince ourselves of our own mediocrity.

“Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.” - Robert Brault When did we stop noticing the tiny miracles that surround us daily? How much more beautiful would life be if we could see these miracles again?

“Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.” - Andre Gide Children are not afraid to play a sport they have never tried before. They will jump on a trampoline, dive into a pool or ski down a mountain even if it is foreign to them. As adults, we fear the unknown. We stay safely ensconced in our comfort zone and rarely venture out. Adventure exhilarates us and awakens the spirit.
