Enjoy each moment. Breathe. Slowly. A monumental thing happened today for my daughter who just turned 4. She declared that she was going to ride her bike without training wheels and she did. Now, I have to tell you that when she first got her bike for Christmas, I was convinced that she would not use training wheels, because she had been riding a balance bike for the past couple of years. If it had been up to me, I would have never even shown her the training wheels. However, she got some bug in her ear that told her that she would feel better with them on, and so the training wheels stayed....for awhile. For a month and a half, she continued to ride her balance bike, swapping it out for her new Hello Kitty bike with the streamers and training wheels. And then, one day...today....she decided on her own time that she could ride a bike.
You can learn a lot from kids. They help you slow down and enjoy life. They love nature and love the outdoors, which are both so incredibly good for you. They love a challenge. Find your challenge and do it. Enjoy it. Slow down and live it up.
