A Lovely Reminder About What We Can Learn From Children

I saw this post recently and it brought to mind the innocent spirit of children:

“Children speak the language of the flowers and understand the whispers of the wind.

They’re in tune with the subtle songs of the forest; they can listen to the trees, interpret the chatter of the rivers, and intuit the meaning of each sparkle of the sun.

Our job isn’t to correct that, but to nurture it, to preserve it, and perhaps even to remember it ourselves.” – Cristen Rodgers

We will often get caught up in the logic of life and we forget the magic and adventure of slow days, of adventure and of wonder. Let’s make a date with ourselves to find it again 🙂

  1. A wonderful reminder , maybe the pandemic stay at home measures have helped us to lie on the dock and look for animal shapes in the clouds again.

    • Yes, that is definitely something the pandemic has done – allowed us to slow down. Hopefully some of us have taken the time to see the wonder of the world through children’s eyes again 🙂 Thanks for you comment Gurlie!
