We've got a lot to learn!
The older we get, the more envious we become towards children. Longing for the ‘simpler times’ when life wasn’t complicated. When we’re around children, especially if you have some of your own, you remember what it’s like to literally know nothing. But there’s something about a child’s blissful ignorance that we should all find endearing and even inspirational.
Kids find this unexplainable confidence in what they say because they just don’t know any better – which is something completely alien to a sentient adult. Sure, ‘kids say the darndest things’ all the time, but maybe if we took a page out of their self-help playbook we’d all be a lot better off!
Take Jessica, for example. She gets up every day and looks in the mirror reciting (and dancing) all of the things that are great in her life. Don’t believe me? Read on to watch for yourself!
When Jessica was 4 years old, her father caught her on video doing what might be the best ‘psych-up’ routine ever. She hops up on her sink, looks in the mirror, and lists everything that’s good and awesome in her life…
She’s got moves, too
A couple of things on her list include: Her parents, her whole house, her school, cousins, aunts, sisters, her haircut, and even her pajamas. All while looking herself directly in the eye and dancing in the mirror.
Why don’t we all do this?
The end of her routine involves her running in place (maybe it’s a jig?) and chanting, “I can do anything!” Then she takes off, running out of the bathroom to presumably take over the world.
