Today I have been thinking a lot about how amazing children truly are.
Why are they so happy naturally and always down for a good time?
Why are they so accepting of everyone around them and why do they laugh 8 times more than adults every day?
1-They eat when they are hungry and stop when they are full. Food isn’t a drug for them or a way to COPE with life situations. It is there to be enjoyed and once they are done eating they do not feel guilt even if they ate two cookies:)
2-They run for fun. Not because they have to or because they are obsessed with burning calories but because they love the way it makes them feel.
3- They have not yet let the media tell them they are not good enough. They think they are beautiful and they are able to love others easily because they love themselves first.
4- They love candy almost as much as I do and of course that makes you happy right?
4- They serve others as much as they can with their limited resources.
My little niece gets a lot of compliments on her long gorgeous hair.
She decided all on her own that at her 5 year old birthday party she would cut her hair to donate it to a little girl that has cancer to be made into a wig (locks of love). She is donating 14 inches and she was really excited about it.
I cried when she did it and I am crying again as I write this.
Nothing like a child to make you remember what is really important in life. The light of Christ shines in their eyes.
What is your favorite childlike characteristic?
-Simply enough I just love how much they smile. It is contagious.
What is your Monday workout?
-I crave my Monday morning sweat session (Sunday is my rest day). I am shooting for a 10-12 mile run.
