Sometimes it seems like life is throwing you all the signs, but you keep on missing them. Too busy, too distracted, too bored, too overstimulated… Too. And then all of a sudden, a 9 year old kid makes you realize what’s really important in life. Do you remember 9? I had a really bad perm, hideous glasses, and still played with My Pretty Ponies and Barbies. Making sense of life was not on my radar. Heck, I could barely make sense of multiplication. (That carrying the one is a tough one to grasp) So I was shocked when this boy comes along and changes my world this past week. (He, and powdered buttermilk, but that’s a different story.)
There are way too many quotes on this video that I could use to show you how insightful this boy year old is, so I’ll just let you watch it yourself. And in the meantime – I’ll be working on “taking the road that leads to awesome.” I hope to see you there.
