Young children know when to take action.
They just know…
Even if it’s just the spark of fun ignited by a soccer ball and the chance to race dad up and down a court at the neighborhood park.
They don’t wait for instruction at the age of 3 ½.
They don’t second guess themselves.
Rarely do they wonder what to do next.
Or hesitate to debate all the possibilities.
Or weigh every risk.
Rarely is there self doubt…
Only a response to pure instinct…
Before fulfilling a simple wish…in a simple game…for the exhilaration of out-of-breath, heart pumping movement.
One kick at a time.
One step at a time.
One jump at a time.
One giggle at a time…
Shrieking with confidence.
Under a sunny sky.
We have much to learn from such joyful spontaneity.
V.J.’s Weekly Challenge #78: action
…think about where action is needed in your life, or in the world in general. The word itself does not need to appear in your post, but the movement should be obvious.
