The whole “being an adult” business was wearing her out. So she took a break to play like a kid again- with utter joy and total abandon. – Queenisms™
As the kids say “adulting is hard.” This always makes us laugh because we’ve never really felt like adults. Oh sure, there are some things, like taxes, that drag us to the adult table, but there are so many more things in our lives that feel like play. An unexpected sighting of a beautiful bird while we’re walking the dog, a flower that pops through the snow in the spring, the uncontrollable urge to dance with abandon when we hear music in the grocery store aisle, the pull of a swing set – even at our age – those are the things that remind us that “adulting” is a state of mind and so is the joy of playing like a kid.
