I get to do a fair amount of working with kids. Whether it’s reading in a creative storytime setting or teaching yoga, kids are a big part of my work. Even if I’m tired, they are always a great distraction to the pressures of being an adult. Their freedom, courage, willingness to express themselves fully and have fun is a total inspiration to be around. If you don’t have kids, like me, it’s essential to your health that you spend a little time with them (I believe). They remind me of the joys of being young and that keeps things in perspective.
