A year ago, I reluctantly took this selfie to share some positive news with my best friend who lives at the other end of the world. I was genuinely happy. I'm just not that comfortable in front of the camera 🙈
Today, I kickstart a new series that will last 45 days, since I am turning 45 in a few. Each day, I will be sharing something I learned over these years. And I am deeply grateful to have made it this far!
The first lesson I learned decades ago is that "play" is the best tool to feel alive. You see, that little girl in me has been my companion all those years. I never wanted to tame her. She was and still is a rebel, an explorer, and an avid learner of all things of the mind. By keeping mini-me present in my life, I was not impersonating a female version of Peter Pan. Not at all! As a Capricorn, I was too driven, organized, and with my feet firmly set on the ground as can be. Well, maybe just one foot... Coz this little breeze was my way into the dream world, the land of all possibilities, and the hunger to enjoy life no matter what it threw at me...
Hereafter, are a few quotes:
The true object of all human life is play - G.K. Chesterton
Play is our brain's favorite way of learning - Diane Ackerman
We don't stop playing because we grow old... We grow old because we stop playing - G.B. Shaw
What do you think?
I say, let's all play 👻👻
