let out your inner child

When was the last time you played outside, 
twirled around, 
did cartwheels 
& just collapsed from laughter?
Where did our inner child go?

Why is it that the older we get, the less we appreciate the small delights of life?
As a child we would relish our time outside and every little excitement life offered us.
My friends and I are all Florida babies, so we can't imagine a childhood that didn't involve being outside all the time during every season.
The days were you swam for hours on end in the pool. Your mom would come out to tell you that dinner was ready, and you always insisted on 5 more minutes

One of the key things we lose as we grow older is that as children we were in the moment.
We weren't occupied with thoughts of tomorrow, or worries about yesterday.
We were concerned with how large my cannonball could be into the pool. Or when your next play date would be.

I am seriously blessed to have friends that in our mid 20's all we want to do is laugh in each others company and let our inner child shine.

So put down your phone this weekend.
Go outside.
Do a cartwheel.
I promise you, it will put a smile on your face.
