Going Back To Childlike Playfulness

Beach 3Yes, that’s me in my “professional” frisbee-catching” pose. Of course, there’s a nice trick to this.

Anyway, this awesome photo was taken again by my husband. You can see more of his photos in his Instagram account. This particular photo was from our October 2017 visit in Bagasbas, Daet.

Every time I see water, especially the beach, I go bananas! I feel like a “fish out of water”, so I need to get into the water – ASAP! My childlike playfulness button is pressed and I feel the freedom and carefree disposition of a child at play.

At 48, I still enjoy my childhood game of frisbee. I used to be so good at it when I was in my early teens, that I unintentionally drove away my guy playmates in our neighborhood. Were they threatened by a girl? So, I ended up having to wait many years later – around 20 years later – to be able to find someone to play frisbee with — my hubby.

I now suffer from an “unstable lumbar” and a mis-aligned spine plate somewhere, after a bad fall from the skateboard (which I was also very good at in my tweens), also last October, in the same place, a day later. So, goodbye high jumps — sigh.

So while we all can, while our health permits, let us rekindle our childlikeness. We have everything to gain from this as we leave our worries behind for just a moment, and experience “true reality” – the reality that restores our heart and soul.

I believe it’s time to play again. See you again in my next blog!
