Being a kid at heart is not a question of age, but more so a question of spirit. I would consider myself a happy person and please don’t mistake my “being a kid at heart” as immaturity. I hear this all too often, as adults, we have a lot of responsibilities that we oftentimes forget to be a kid at heart. We always run from one thing to the next. However, raising my two boys has taught me one thing: To let loose sometimes. As I watch them being carefree, happy, and innocent in nature I cannot help but wonder: When did we forget being a “kid a heart”?!
Smile and the world will smile with you.
My two sons, Kingston and Jaxson smile all the time. They are especially sweet when they both wake up in the morning. The first thing they do (when they see mommy or daddy) is smile. A smile carries love and children smile because they are truly happy, as their lives are not complicated or filled with much responsibility. My boys find joy and happiness everywhere. They inspire me to be just like that. Just as Charlie Chapman once said: “A day without laughter is a day wasted.”
Everyday is a fresh start.
Have you ever hold a grudge against someone? Something happened and you simply couldn’t forgive that person? I think we all experienced it in one way or the other. However, have you ever noticed that children have the uncanny ability to see every day as a new beginning? When my oldest son Kingston gets upset about someone it’s typically just for a period of time. The next day, they are best friends again. He forgets about the past easily and doesn’t hold grudges. So, the lesson is: It’s never too late to forgive and start all over.

Being fearless and carefree.
I love the fact that both my boys have the most amazing ability to be carefree and fearless. They are limitless and have no boundaries because they are not yet confined by the fear of shame or failure; they do things because they just don’t know any better. I tend to worry a lot, worry about what others may think, etc. and yet I realize how silly it is. I’m trying to simply embrace what life has to offer now—in a carefree and fearless manner so I can be unstoppable.
