Kids always seems to have so much fun. They are masters at being in the moment, and masters at living.
Sure, they don’t have many of the responsibilities that most adults have, but maybe there’s something more to it. Perhaps in addition to not having the responsibilities we have, they are also missing the ego that makes us care what others think, the jaded mind that prevents us from taking chances, and the cautious heart that stifles our ability to truly love.
The great thing about life and living is that we can initiate change in any given moment.
