The Good Life

This little person, and her friend, know how to live.

“The most sophisticated people I know - inside they are all children.”  

- Jim Henson

Does it get any better than this? I think not. This is the good life.

Our inner child craves the simple life that we all knew when young and still relatively unblemished by culture. A time when a puddle, a feathery friend and blossoms everywhere made for a moment of perfection.

A time when playing and simply living was our major focus.

A simple life allows time to play and be.

Find a puddle. Jump up and down. Enjoy it with a friend.

This is the good life, that is attainable by all.

“Everything seemed possible, when I looked through the eyes of a child.
And every once in a while; I remember,
I still have the chance to be that wild.” 
- Nikki Rowe

    That super-cute photo made me very nostalgic for when my kids were little. I spent many hours in the garden with them, mostly doing nothing, just enjoying the sunshine and watching them play.


  2. Kids certainly seem to have their priorities straightened out compared to us adults. To be easily satisfied, easily entertained and easily content are great things we could learn from children.
