I just saw this video (P&G Olympic Sponsor Spot) that I found very inspiring and very comforting. So I had to jump out of bed to post it.
When we were children we took a lot of hard knocks, but we didn’t see it that way. We never felt that the world was against us way back then when we were around age 5 or less. We never said to ourselves, “Why is this happening to me? Why am I falling down? Why am I getting hurt?” It was just part of the process. It was part of the fun. It was just part of the game. Life was the game. And life still is the game. We’ve just forgotten that it’s a game.
The falls, the bruises, the injuries, the “failures” – none of that bothered us. We didn’t care what anyone else thought of us. We were just living – really living!
Right now, let`s remind ourselves that the child within each of us still lives and still wants to play! “We take our own dear selves too seriously” (RI) Let’s get back in the game!
