Let the Inner Child play

Have you taken time to play lately? I mean really play? I don't just mean an evening out at a movie or time working on your hobbies. I mean play. I mean something your Inner Child would love to do.

It's fascinating to me to see the rise of things such as adult coloring books now. That's something you may have loved as a little girl just as I did. I've heard that paper dolls are making a comeback, too! Those are things we did as play when we were young. Why did we stop? Oh, yes, because adults are supposed to be serious and not do such things. Hmmm....

If you haven't already done so, consider bringing back one of those into your life. Or buy some Play-Doh and have fun with it. Working that dough with your hands can be so therapeutic! If building blocks or Legos are more your thing, buy yourself a set—and go to. Or maybe you like puzzles?

Feel foolish doing those things? What's the worst that can happen to you if you engage in some fun and play? Someone might laugh at you? Do you care? Perhaps the benefits will be worth it. And anyway, a worthy goal is to get to the point where we follow our own heart and worry far less about "what other people think." Go ahead—play a little.
