I spend my mornings hanging out under rainbow parachutes and surrounded by babies and bubbles. It's hard to feel cynical in this setting. When the world starts getting a little dark, I bask in the light of childhood optimism. I dwell in their joy and possibility. And I am recharged.
So here is my holiday wish list for you dear friends:
May you feel the happiness found under a rainbow parachute,
and experience the wonder of bubble time.
May your soul soar with abandonment.
May you know the confidence of reaching the top alone
and the support of a loved one when you need it most.
I wish you the optimism found in a baby's smile
and the comfort and delight in being found yourself. Either in a game of hide-n-seek or by being seen in the real world as you actually are...
I hope you laugh
and use your imagination to the fullest
and that you play.
And dance like a chicken. Or a robot. Or anything else that makes you smile.
I hope you look at things from a new perspective everyday.
And that you take time to rest and be peaceful.
May you dwell in the cheer of good company.
And most of all, I wish you the joy of possibility.
