Today’s Positive Thought ~ We get old because we stop playing

“We don’t stop playing because we get old. We get old because we stop playing (Satchel Paige).” There comes a point where we lose the child like joy of play. We learn adult rules. We get serious. We’re taught to write goals and chase them as if they hold some kind of treasure. All the while we gradually lose contact with the young boy or girl inside us. Why not waken them up? Why not bring joy and a sense of play to whatever you’re doing. Here’s one way I do it. When I’m cooking my dinner (I enjoy cooking) I pretend I’m on a competitive cooking show. I hear (in my mind) the judges commenting on what I’m doing. I always win the competition at the end – LOL. It makes cooking dinner even more fun.
