Motivational Monday...Grab Your Inner Childhood Spirit!


What Larry and I enjoy most about Facebook besides photos from friends and family members are the hilarious and heartwarming pet and child videos.


This video had us in stitches. It also made me wonder about a time when most of us had that wonderful childhood quality of uninhibited spirit.

(it's over 3 minutes but trust me, it will be the best 3 minutes you've spent!)

It may be something that some of us never truly had or perhaps had but was lost on its way to adulthood.


This week I’m going to venture into the “way back” machine and see if I can’t revive some of that spirit. It may come in handy when meeting someone new or when asked to play with my great niece and nephews.


I may need it when asked to go somewhere I’ve never been or to try a new restaurant. Simple daily things that could enhance our lives.


Instead of saying “Oh no, that’s not for me” I hope to be saying “Let’s go for it.”


Join me??


By the way- I learned from my 4-year-old great-niece that the music from a Jack Hartmann song. You can see the YouTube video of Tooty Ta here.

It is the very spirit I love about children.  Some adults may be too hasty and immediately say NO...I experience that last year when I braved a zip line, and I immediately wanted to do it again...My sweet friend gave me the courage.  A

She is fantastic!  I recently saw a similar video, but it was of my nephew at his recital.  I love how kids just have fun in life and don't have to worry about anything else!

You know what?  I still have that spirit lurking in me.  Usually however, it takes about 2.3 glasses of wine before it comes out of hiding!

I noticed everyone else in the audience was laughing and yet the only child paying attention and listening to the instructions was the girl everyone was laughing at.

Sham Reddy it is fearless and it's a pity that we lose much of it as we get older. 

Wayne Martin All you have to do is watch kids at play. 

Donald Urschalitz I love this one!!!!

Sheila Anderson I've watched it at least 4 times and I do wonder what is going through the head of the little girl with her hands over her face. 

Grant Schneider those are the precious moments you don't want to miss. 

Ron and Alexandra Seigel good for you for trying a zip line!!! I haven't yet but I would consider it.

Roy Kelley I will and hope that you and Dolores are doing well. 

Brian England it's interesting how at a certain age we become more guarded about what we do. 

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® this is one of my favorites.

Michael Jacobs everyone should have children in their lives in some manner...nieces, nephews, whatever... to remind them of how much fun life can be. 

Myrl Jeffcoat LOL- I've been known to have my free spirit emerge after a glass of an adult beverage!!!

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP it wasn't until my second viewing that I even saw any of the other children. 

Will Hamm If they were like me, they were laughing for the little girl and admiring her free spirit.

George Souto how about her first date or husband to be!!!

Anna Banana Kruchten CRB, CRS 602-380-4886 I totally agree!  If you watch this video and don't break out in a big smile or laugh, then I'd see a doctor!

I'm not so flexible when it comes to trying new things any more. I will take your advice and see if I can improve that!
