Thoughtful Thursday

Find a picture of yourself from when you were young.

Would your choices today make this little girl proud?
What would this little girl think of her grown up life?

I don’t mean this to put shame or guilt on your life. What I mean is, do you allow yourself to do the things that bring you joy? Do you allow yourself to play, to be creative, to laugh until you pee your pants??

Keep this picture near by for a week. Does this influence your choices at all?

Share the picture with us!
