Similar to an old post but a lovely quote which I find myself returning to again and again....
It was written in a magazine article so I never found out the woman's name. A girl was on a course for something I can't remember and there were many young people on it. However, there was one woman who was around 80 years old and when asked why she had decided to do something like this at her time in life she replied:
"You don't stop playing because you grow old, you grow old because you stop playing."
Where in your life have you stopped playing?
In what way does you inner child fight to come out and play?
Can you believe that I (at nearly 31 years old) thought on my 30th birthday, that I was old????? WHAT!!!!??
I did, I was upset....I was concerned about it all...the age I always thought I would never get to.....was suddenly there! I began to think that there was so much I wanted to still achieve and I was running out of time.
Thankfully I have such great support around me that I soon saw that in fact 30 is really young. I have heaps of time left to play. It doesn't have to stop. I can still achieve everything I set out to achieve. I can create anything I wish. Plus the fact that with what I know now...the next 30, 40, 50...60 years will only be bigger, brighter and indeed more playful than ever!!!!
Now where is that hula hoop....
