That “Something”

25 Aug

I heard once somewhere that in order to find your passion as an adult, do something that your parents never let you do as a child.

Please note that I’m talking about safe and legal “somethings” here!

Obviously, awesome parents are supportive of their children and do their best to indulge their child as much as possible as they’re growing so the child is exposed to new activities and ideas. However, there were probably a few things that fell to the wayside as you were growing up.

Perhaps there was an elective class in high school on the art of desserts, but you didn’t take it in favor of continuing a foreign language class, since that would look better on college applications. As an adult, you have the ability to go and sign up for a baking class.

Your parents didn’t want you to be a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle outside of Halloween? Go find a martial arts program to join. Sure, you won’t have a cool shell as a built-in shield, but the “ninja” part of the title is better than nothing, right?

Do you remember having a little Polaroid camera, even a toy one, and how excited you were at showing off the pictures of your dog, your doll, your favorite tree in the backyard? Do you remember the last time you enjoyed the scenery enough to take a picture so you can show it to your friend later? What’s stopping you from getting a new camera, from making collages of your favorite shots, from finding that passionate feeling again?

Day jobs are important. Getting together with your family and friends is irreplaceable. But when was the last time you indulged your inner child, your past self, and were really excited about one of those “somethings?”

    I always try to find a way to say yes to new experiences both for myself and my kiddo because experiences are what build us. The more positive, brain expanding, soul lifting experiences he has the better his life will be.
