Day 13 - Abandoning the little girl (Dirty Soles)

Oct 24, 2010

At the end of day 13, I am beginning to realize that abandoning the little girl is not actually about leaving her behind at all. In fact, the adventure of addressing my inner child these last couple of weeks has made me realize it was perhaps she who was missing this last decade! Not that I recommend that we all become adolescent in our behavior, but perhaps that we embrace our sweet creative optimistic child at heart and run barefoot occasionally, imagine we are superheros, paint in patterns, and laugh.

A child is innately competitive and will run hard as they can, but they are also a good sport; congratulating a friend upon a victory and dancing with joy for second place. While winning in business is essential, enjoying the game is perhaps our primary reason for playing.
