So a friend and I hung out today with nothing to do. We decided to go pick up a frizbee at REI, and after practicing hand stands and tossing the frizbee around, I looked at the tree in the photo above and thought outloud that I hadn’t climbed a tree in a very long time. He shared the sentiment, and a minute later I was up in the tree tossing my phone down so he could take a photo. We traded spots and while driving home we were discussing how we felt like kids again with dubstep playing in the background. I have gotten caught up in too many grown up things lately trying to be responsible, and as such lost any desire to live, suffering a 3 month long depression which left me fatigued and apathetic. Friend helped me figure out that life isn’t about being one or the other (grown up, or a kid). I don’t have to play with expensive grown up toys, although they are fun in their own right. I don’t have to abandon my responsibilities as a grown up either. I simply have to remember the kid in me every once in a while, and put in place a few check points, once every few months and have some good clean innocent fun. I had forgotten that innocence can be fun too.
