Listening to the wisdom of children gives you a great advantage in life. Always keep an ear open.
Sometimes when I have increased levels of anxiety because of life’s pressures and the stress that goes along with trying to accomplish so many things my mind spins out of control. I always find it comforting to take my kids on a walk to discuss some of the things that I am going through and to ask their advice. I am amazed at their simple answers and how in a couple of sentences they can make everything so clear.
I don’t know why we as adults think we have a handle on everything when (at least for me) the kids I’m around make so much more sense than my anxious mind and heart. Today all I have is what I can do with excellence. The rest will come in time.
