Sometimes I envy my kids. I envy their freedom of expression, their complete lack of inhibition, and their ability to find utter delight in the simplest of things. Take our recent trip to Best Buy for example. Grace was wearing clothes that she picked out with her rain boots on the wrong feet. Yeah, that's how we roll around here. And Grace was totally and completely confident in her wardrobe choice - leggings because they're "soft pants" and a shirt with her name on it "so everybody will know my name's Grace." Then, Grace discovered some headphones she wanted to sample. And she rocked out to the tunes only she could hear. And you know what? Grace couldn't care less if anybody was watching or what they thought. She just felt the urge to dance and she went with it. Just imagine how much happier we could be if we would only follow our children's examples.
So, today take a lesson from Grace. Wear clothes that are comfy and be confident in your choice. Put your shoes on the wrong feet because that's what the cool kids do. Get loose and groove to your own personal rhythm. Rock to the music in your head. And dance like nobody's watching.
Then, post it on youtube so I can laugh myself silly.
