In every real man a child is hidden that wants to play. —Friedrick Nietzsche—
All of us have a child inside. We may see that child as a friend or as a enemy.
Many of us were taught that growing up meant doing away with our inner child. It was as if being a child was
bad and being an adult was good. If we try to be only an adult, the child cries, ”Let me run free and show you the
beauty of the world.” If we try to be only a child, we find the adult in using us saying, “It’s time to grow up.”
Let’s find a balance. Remember, the adult needs the wonder found in the eyes of the child. Remember, the child
needs the loving care of the adult. The child lives where we find our spirit. Our Higher Power is the prefect balance
of the two.
Prayer for the Day: Higher Power, help me be both the child and the adult. I need both.
Action for the Day: Today, I’ll make time to be a child and to be an adult.
