Wednesday Quotes



Have you ever watched small children playing alone in a room? They will
talk to themselves, and they will answer. They will dress themselves up.
They sing and dance.
A small child in a room all alone can have a marvelous time entertaining him-
or herself. Children can do this not only because they have an innocence that
helps them to rise above the cares of the world; they don’t mind being alone
with their thoughts and dreams. They don’t mind acting out their fantasies.
They can live their lives beyond the expectations of others. In a room all alone,
children have no inhibitions.
They have nothing to prove and no one to satisfy but themselves. They feel free!
They are unencumbered by opinions and directives.
It happens because nobody is watching them.
Live your life like nobody is watching you.

  1. Good morning Mary.....so nice to hear from you. I loved this story you posted today......you know......I still talk to my self, and OFTEN answer....not always outloud mind you. My husband will often see my lips moving and ask me who I am talking to. Hopefully being in "old age" gives one permission to act JUST LIKE A CHILD! LOL
