Regain Your Youth
Why is it, that as we grow older, we start to act like old folks? Oh, I understand, there are certain physical limitations that can come with age, but I’m not talking about that, I’m talking about acting like something is beneath us to do, because we are now adults.
Someone once said that the greatest thing about having grandkids is that you get to get on the floor and play like a kid again. Hooray for the grandkids! Too bad we need them to throw off our stuffiness, and have some good old fun. Maybe, just maybe, it would be possible to have that fun, without having the grandkids; maybe we could do it as a couple.
C’mon, get over your stuffiness, play again, have fun, If anyone looks at your strange, maybe it’s because they don’t have the guts to do what you are doing. Anyway, who cares what they are thinking.
Day 25 – Let’s have some good old fashioned kid type fun. It’s fall, and what does fall bring us? Hmmm, how about all those leaves that have fallen from the trees. Now, if we were kids, what would we do with all those leaves? You got it, we’d rake them into the biggest mountain we could, and jump in it.
So, take off your coat and tie, grab the rake, and make a pile of leaves. Once you’ve got everything ready, grab your wife, bring her outside, and have fun! Make the going outside a game too. Cover her eyes with your hands as you lead her outside.
It may not seem like the most romantic thing you’ve ever done, but it will make the two of you feel young again. If there’s anything that’s romantic, feeling young would have to be pretty high up on the list.
