Nothing like a bit of inspiration to get you going right?
Of all the sessions to talk about this is the one I want to share.
Blissdom‘s Keynote speaker did just that. Kevin Carroll from KevinCarrollkatalyst.com was talking my language. You see he was talking about the importance of play. Yep we were a bunch of adults so you probably wonder how can a keynote speaker ,speak to a roomful of Blissdom peeps and fire them up so? ( and make them shed tears). Kevin is a powerful storyteller and gave life lessons through play.
Take away for me
While all these 7 simple truths work so well in our adult lives. You may wonder how did I get so far from some of these things yet I see it in my little ones all the time?
- It is never too late to power up that playful spirit.
- Never too late to play with your kids.
- Never too late to start a new playful habit.
- I love these lessons for me but love them for your children as well.
- Find your own red rubber ball.
As you read through the truths below imagine how these not only translate for you but how you can build them into your child’s lives so that play remains and endures.
7 simple truths learned on the Playground
Commit to it.
“Until one is committed there is always hesitancy..”
“Commitment. Don’t talk about it. Be about it.”
What is your “Want to…”?
What do you want to do? What is your intent and purpose?
Seek out encourages
Stay away from energy vampires …”We know they are discouragers”. “aka Monday moaners”.
“Who is that person that will challenge you but also lift you up?”
Work out your creative muscle
You need to be agile and fit ,work that muscle. What do you do to recharge your creative muscle? How do you replenish, feed yourself to be confident and creative?
Prepare to shine
“..Put in the time and hard work because you believe that hard work never goes unrewarded”.
“Believe in that “.
“A closed mouth don’t get fed”.
Open up and let people know what you need; share your hopes and dreams. You never know who’ll be there with you.
Look out for the encouragers or who could help you?
Expect the unexpected
“Keep your eyes open. Forever curious eyes.” have eyes of wonder and know possibilities come.

“Expect and respect the unexpected”.
Maximise the day
“You are given a gift of 86400 seconds in one day…..to make a difference….manifest a dream into reality.”
Anything is possible…Your circumstances don’t dictate someones destiny.
Each day is a gift.
