How Can I Feel Like a Kid Again?

Dear Molly,

I want to know about feeling like a kid again.  Any suggestions?

Dear Wondering in Walla Walla,

What do you love to do?  The secret to feeling like a kid again is to remember what you love to do – and then do it.  If you don’t know, that’s okay.  It just means you get to try a bunch of things until you figure it out, and that can be fun too.

Here’s my advice:

Spend time with kids.

Listen to your heart.

Play! Play games, songs, musical chairs – whatever.  Just play.

Don’t let other people tell you what to do.  Do what you want.

Create things.  Eat lollipops.  Swim sideways.  Dance naked.  Jump rope in the hallway.

Whatever you do – do it because you want to. 

Then no matter what you do, it will probably be fun.

Decide what you want – do what you want – let it be fun. 

That’s it!

Thanks for writing.
