I try to honor my inner child. We all have one, and it's important that we nurture that child-- because we adults need a break from all the adult stuff we have to do on the daily.
Mom Boss Michaela Madison (of www.newsymom.com) hangs with us Wednesday mornings for chit chat and some tricks she's learned since becoming a momma. We've been friends for a decade, and she's just so fun and sassy-- which is why we get along so well. She surprised me the other day with this awesome pair of unicorn slippers. UNICORN SLIPPERS!!!!! I squealed like a little girl. Talk about "sparking joy"...
I had mentioned that it's not fair that kids get all the fun stuff-- like light-up shoes and puffy tulle skirts and unicorn stuff. So, Michaela felt I needed unicorns because I love them so much. And according to her 4-year-old daughter, Remi, a unicorn with a gold horn is special.
You know, I feel like a complete rockstar now.
It's the little things that make life cool. Squeal over the little things. Do a happy dance. Live with moments of joy.
