I put my house on a diet. I had kept too many things, children's artwork, school papers, odds and ends of fabric, yarn and much, much more. Being a military family-we usually move every two to three years. My husband's orders forced us to face the music and go through our household goods-sort, toss, and give away items we no longer used and had out grown. (He is retired.)
I want to end my Debbie Downer cycle. So, let's not concentrate on what we have out grown, but what we will never out grow! My first thoughts are: Love, laughter, the ocean, the stars, flowers, rainbows, the sky's color, words, rebirth of spring, puppies, music, movies, and much, much more.
Poets, writers and artists seem to be able to keep their inner child alive longer, than most. So, pen a poem about what you will never out grow-what will always delight, inspire, and amaze you.
P.S. Did Peter Pan enter your thoughts?! Me, too.
