It is finally early spring! What was the first outside activity we all had great fun with after a long winter?
How often do we allow our child-like innocence expression? Think of someone you admire and marvel do they relish their innocence? Allowing themselves to soar through life with abandonment to the simple joys present daily? Even with our children are we allowing them time to express delight at all the stages of their life? Are we pushing them too hard to success early? Can they make a kite from scratch? Can you? The simple art of kite making and flying is the ability to use our imagination. Creating joy through the perfection of artistic freedom. It isn’t about creating a perfect kite. No, it is about creating through expression of self. When was the last time you made something very simple from scratch?
Kites remind us of freedom and delight. Today seeing kites is rare. Why? Advancement does not replace spontaneity, joy, childhood, and delightful expression in freedom. A very simple life brings deep joy, healing, and wisdom.
Take time today and go fly your kite!
