Life Lessons from my kids

bright side2You know that famous saying, “All I really need to know I learned in kindergarten” ?

Well, today I am declaring a new famous saying, “All I really need to know I learned from a kindergartener”!

Seriously, I learn so much about life spending time with my children. They are like a gift I get to unwrap every morning, yet it is completely different and new each time I do.

Through them I am learning new lessons on life, love, compassion, friendship, and unbridled enthusiasm each and every day.

Sometimes, it can feel like too much. So much so, that I can hardly bear to process any more information … but then there are those other times — the moments when the clouds part ways and I am thunder struck with a beam of light so bright it leaves a mark on my soul telling me, “this is exactly why you are here and what you are meant to be doing.”

Those days, those awe-filled wondrous days remind me what it truly means to look on the bright side.

P.S. This one’s for you Carla, somewhere in the middle … now I am off to bed!
